Title: John Wesley
Description: London, Collins. 1979, First Edition. (ISBN: 0002166569). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 350 pages. 18 illustrations. The story of John Wesley is rich in improbabilities and contradictions: the champion of 'primitive' Christianity whose version of it swept the new machine-driven England; the friend of the common people who detested democratic ideas; the stickler for the rules whose success depended on breaking them; the advocate of celibacy who nevertheless married disastrously; the son of the Church of England who fathered in spite of himself a breakaway church. In his 53 years mission he covered by horse and chaise nearly a quarter of a million miles, preached over 40,000 sermons and published some 400 written works. A major contribution to the understanding of this enigmatic and immensely popular figure. NOT EX LIB R9. Fine/Near Fine.
