Pencil gift note on front endpaper ('To Jennie from her Pastor, Rev McAustice, 1873'), fore-edge corners slightly exposed. 1871 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author!. 192 pp. 8vo. Original cloth, gilt spine panels with title in relief, black blind-stamped decorations. Engraved frontispiece, three smaller engravings precede text. Two-column format. Religious allegory by John Bunyan, at one time second only to the Bible in popularity. It is a symbolic vision of the pilgrimage through life. The first and best-known book, published in 1678, in which the character Christian travels on the road to salvation from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City, is presented as a dream. Written in homely yet dignified biblical prose, the work has some of the qualities of a folktale, and in its humor and realistic portrayals of Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Faithful, Hopeful, Pliant, and Obstinate, it anticipates the 18th-century novel.Keywords: LITERATURE RELIGIOUS RELIGION CHRISTIAN ALLEGORY PILGRIM'S PROGRESS
