Edges rubbed, large chip from corner of one text page resulting in minor loss of text, but a professional repair has replaced the missing paper, front & end matter lightly foxed. xxviii, 686 pp. 12 5/8 x 10 3/8. Leather spine & corners over cloth boards, gilt titles, gilt triple rule, marbled edges and endpapers. A unique collection of three of John Bunyan's works, including his famous The Pilgrim's Progress, the better part of which was written while we was imprisoned for violation of the Conventicle Act. Over three centuries later it still stands as the most famous Christian allegory (and some say the most influential religious book) ever written. This edition includes numerous color (chromolithographs) and duotone plates, as well as engraved plates and illustrations in text. Two-column format with fairly large print, footnotes throughout.
