The Adventures of Search for Life, a Bunyanic Narrative, as Detailed by Himself

Portland: S.H. Colesworthy, Publisher, 1838. Pamphlet. Good. Item #014141
ISBN: noisbn

Pamphlet, lacking any wrappers issued, and perhaps disbound from a larger work. Iv, 88 pp (Wright, American Fiction, 1774-1850 indicates this has 90 pages, but text appears complete). A religious parable, charting the author's transition from beliefs in Partialism, through Methodism and finally to Universalism, citing the many "hazards" along the way. Called "an imaginative inversion of Bunyan's own allegory," (The Oxford Handbook of John Bunyan, p. 598). GOOD condition, ex-library. Blindstamp and a few other minor library markings present. Name of publisher handwritten in ink on the title page. Ink word on the last page of text. Minor to moderate soiling and staining to the outer pages, with moderate scattered foxing throughout. Perhaps missing a last leaf.
