A Description of a Remarkable Vision, seen by Thomas Webster, while speaking over a corpse at the grave's side, on the 7th of August, 1794, . in Bermondsey Church-Yard, accompanied with an exact representation. Also of another seen by Four Colliers on the 24th of June, 1796, with the prophecy of Humphrey Tindal, Vicar of Wellenger, shewing the Downfall of the Clergy, and the Woeful and Miserable Condition of this Kingdom, with several other remarkable Passages, As printed by I. M. 1642.
G. Riebau, London 1798 - Hardcover. Slim octavo. 16pp. Contemporary half cloth binding with gilt titles on spine, marbled papered boards. Double fold-out frontispiece, hand-tinted in colour. A booklet collecting together near-contemporary texts (presumably first issued as broadsheets) on various curious and bizarre occurences: "Description of an Open Vision, seen by Thomas Webster," "An Account of a Remarkable Vision Seen by Four Colliers," "The Prophecy of Humphrey Tindal," "Curious Predictions from Keach's Antichrist Storm'd" and the "Prediction of Mr. G. Withers." Some sources suggest that there should be a separate title-page for "The Prophecy of Humphrey Tindal," but if so it is not accounted for in the pagination (which is otherwise sequential, including the title-page proper) and the only other copy that we could trace (that in the British Library) does NOT have a second title-page. Light wear to boards, a few small chips and tears to spine, some darkening to endpapers, pages a little discolored, still a solid, VG+ copy. Genuinely rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
