Life in Jesus A memoir of Mrs Mary Winslow by Octavius Winslow published by John F Shaw

£34.99

Product description

Hardback 19th century book published by John F Shaw, London. Thirty-fourth thousand. Navy boards with gilt titling to spine and front cover and other decoration. Ex libris. The subject of the book Mary Winslow has signed the book in dedication to her sister below the illustrated frontispiece.
Mary Winslow the author's mother, Mary Forbes (1774-1854) had Scots roots but was born and raised in Bermuda and was the only child of Dr. and Mrs George Forbes. On September 6 1791, when she was just 17, she married Army Lieutenant Thomas Winslow of the 47th Regiment who was descended from Edward Winslow, a Pilgrim leader who came to the New World on the Mayflower in 1620. Mary and Thomas Winslow went on to live in England and Octavius, the author of this book, was born in London, on August 1, 1808. He was the tenth of 13 children. His name seems to have been given because he was then the eighth surviving child. A decision was made to move to America, but before Mr. Winslow could join his wife and children in New York, he died. At the same time, their youngest child died too.
Octavius Winslow survived and was ordained as a pastor in 1833 in New York. He later moved to England as a nonconformist minister; holding pastorates in Leamington Spa, Bath, and Brighton. He was also spoke at the opening of Metropolitan Tabernacle in 1861 at the invitation of C. H. Spurgeon.
This copy has wear and tear to front boards and spine, and front pages and spine are loosening. A fair copy.
