London: Strahan and Company, 1880. xvi,327,pp. Large, thick quarto (31 x 25 cm). Full chocolate brown crushed morocco, five raised bands, spine compartments gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, t.e.g., by American binder Alfred Matthews. Illustrations and plates. Bookplate of Livingston L. Biddle. Minor trace of wear along the upper joint, otherwise fine in morocco faced board slipcase. Denoted the "Edition Deluxe," limited to 500 numbered copies, printed on handmade paper, with the illustrations printed on Japon in "proof" state. The one hundred illustrations were made by Frederick Barnard, J. D. Linton, and others, and were printed by the Dalziel Brothers. This copy has also been copiously extra-illustrated with pictorial material from other sources, including title-pages and portraits from a number of late 18th and early 19th century editions of Bunyan's work. A monument to a few generations of bibliophilic taste and practice now dampened by the passage of time and the disinclination to dismember other books to produce plump, Grangerized laps-full of text and illustration.
