[Manuscript]: A Prophet in his own Country
[No place: no publisher. 1925]. Typed manuscript. 170pp., typed rectos only. Each chapter has been paper-clipped together, separate from the other chapters. Some oxidation from paper clips with some scattered tears and chips throughout, and moderate tears and chips to the final few pages, about near fine. Numerous pencil corrections, although a relatively finished draft. An apparently unpublished novel by William E. Batron about Jesus returning as an American in the early 20th Century. Also included is a good only original mailing envelope addressed to the publisher ("Bobbs Merrill Co.") with a return address that states, "From William E. Barton, Foxboro, Mass." Barton (1861-1930) was a religious scholar and prolific author of national acclaim -- reportedly his entry in the 1930 edition of Who's Who in America was the longest in the book. Today he is best known for his books about Abraham Lincoln and his great collection of Lincoln material, though several of his amusing religious parables have also lately been reprinted. .
