Boston: Gould, Kendall & Lincoln, 1842. First edition.. Front wrapper creased and a trifle soiled; a little light, scattered foxing; a very good copy.. 16mo, original printed peach wrappers, 32 pages, a.e.g. An attractive little pamphlet for the newly-converted, unusual as an example of a pamphlet with publisherís gilt edges. Though moderately anodyne and pious, Apollos went through at least four subsequent editions through 1863. This first edition is both moderately uncommon and a case study in determining relative scarcity: OCLC notes a single copy (Emory), while the NUC notes only MB. American Imprints 42-179 notes MB and adds MiD-B (the Burton Collection at the Detroit Public Library). (Inventory #: 17485)
First editions in 19th and early 20th century eccentric religious movements, popular entertainments, popular medicine, literature and Americana. Books and pamphlets bought and sold.
