A FINE COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION of one of the earliest works written by Bunyan after his release from prison in 1672. Although quire H was originally made up of eight leaves, none of the copies cited in the bibliographies have leaf H8, which was almost certainly blank (the verso of H7 is also blank).
