What Our Customers Say...
Decorative Binding, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce
The first edition of this work to contain Southey's Life of Bunyan. And the first edition to be edited by him. An expensive production with many illustrations.
The Pilgrim's Progress was originally published in 1678 and it remains the work for which Bunyan is remembered. It is comprised of two parts and is presented in a dream sequence, exploring the notion of good and evil. This work contains a biography of Bunyan, written by Robert Southey.
This details Bunyans interesting and varied life, including his time as a preacher as well as his time in prison.
There are 33 illustrations, made up of wood engravings, copper plates and a frontispiece of John Bunyan. Collated complete.
