[More, Hannah].  The pilgrims: An allegory. [London]: J. Evans & Son, [ca. 1820]. 8vo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). 16, 16 pp.
$200.00

A parable of travellers, some of whom focus on "the things above" and others on "the things below." Following the first piece are four additional brief "Cheap Repository" items, with a shared title-page — "Dan and Jane; or, Faith and Works," "The Execution of Wild Robert; Being a Warning to All Parents," and "The Gin-Shop; or, a Peep into a Prison." => These are all complete, but jumbled together with pages curiously intermingled.
        Each title-page features a wood-engraved vignette. All six pieces are signed "Z," for Hannah More, the creator of and primary contributor to the "Cheap Repository."
        Provenance: From the chapbook collection of American collector Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.

Removed from a nonce volume. Latter portion misbound as above. Slightly age-toned, with scattered mild foxing. Each title-page vignette with a few dark spots apparently resulting from printer's over-inking; an interesting copy.  (41161)   Please RESHELVE This.
