 A HISTORY OF METHODISM IN THE UNITED STATES by James Buckley (Presumed First Edition) 1897 ~ 2 Volume LUXURY SET; ILLUSTRATED

 Publisher: The Christian Literature Company, New York (1897; presumed first edition)

Presumed first edition of A HISTORY OF METHODISM IN THE UNITED STATES from 1897. Complete in two volumes, this dedicated history of Methodism is profusely illustrated with 118 B/W plates, a frontispiece protected by tissue depicting the Wesley family — John Wesley, John, Samuel Annesly (Maternal Grandfather), John Wesley (Paternal Grandfather), Samuel Wesley (Father), Susannah Wesley (Mother), Charles Wesley, Sarah Wesley (Wife of Charles), Samuel Wesley (Eldest Brother), and Charles Wesley (Son of Charles). Another illustration of note is a facsimile page of Wesley's journal. Each volume retains its original binding of three-quarter leather, on marbled boards with gilt titling and decorations on spine. The set is in very well preserved condition. VERY small bookseller stamp on inside front board of Volume I only. The boards and binding are solid and tight with some slight wear to a portion of the fore-edges of the bottom boards with no other wear present. The pages are crisp and clean. The books seem to have been delegated as library shelf books — but remain a fascinating and beautiful read. Volume I: 472 pages; Volume II: 481 pages.
