[Campbell, John]. The last week of the world. A vision. London: John Evans, [ca. 1810?]. 8vo (16.7 cm, 6.57"). 8 pp. $275.00
Apocalyptic warning, written by a Scottish missionary (1766–1840) known for his Travels in South Africa. This printing, apparently the first, is scarce; WorldCat locates three U.S. institutional holdings of a later "Evans and Son" imprint, but none of this "John Evans, No. 42" printing. => The large title-page wood-engraving illustrates the dividing of the wicked from the righteous..
Provenance: From the chapbook collection of American collector Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.
Removed from a nonce volume; page edges gently browned. The workmanlike printing is somewhat uneven, and the title-page vignette shows a few small ink spots from the press. => Uncommon and interesting. (41160) Please RESHELVE This.
