[between 1810 & 1814] · [Nottingham]
After-life account of a man who "died, and continued so for the space of two hours and fifteen minutes" before reviving and describing his views of heaven and hell. The description of Tuckfield's experience is followed by two hymns and => a woodcut illustration of Jesus elevating the blessed and Satan dragging down the damned, surrounding the text of Matthew 25:31–32. This little chapbook on cheap paper is uncommon, with a search of WorldCat locating only six reported U.S. institutional holdings.
Provenance: From the chapbook collection of Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.
