Description: Coventry: Prnted and Sold by M. Luckman. Sold also by James Mathews..., 1786. FIRST BURDER EDITON. 12mo (in 6s), 167 x 97 mms., pp. xxxii,202; viii, 175 [176 adverts], engraved frontispiece (defective with portion of plate missing), 5 engraved plates in Par I and 3 engraved plates in Par II, 19th century half calf, green boards; one-inch strip torn from bottom of pp. 119 - 120 in Part I with loss of text, pp. 55-56 and 191-192 defective at lower margin, with some loss, covers detached; a sad copy that only a mother could love. The Independent minister George Burder (1752 - 1832) published 989,000 copies in three editions of his sermons with the Religious Tract Society. In addition to The Pilgrim's Progress, he also edited Bunyan's Holy War. The above volume was favourably reviewed in The Monthly Review: "The reader will be apt to infer that our Editor is a Methodist, though he writes in a better style than some of that persuasion...His exposition of Bunyan's allegories will strongly recommend his edition of the Pilgrim's Progress to the Antinomians and the rigid Calvinists in general."
