8vo, pp. [viii], 215, [1]. Untrimmed and mostly unopened in original blue sugar-paper wrappers. Spine covering a little chipped with some loss.


Two Muggletonian texts by Thomas Tomkinson (1631-c.1710), an early convert to the sect who was entrusted with the manuscript of Lodowick Muggleton's autobiography in the final weeks of the latter's life and shepherded it through the presses following Muggleton's death in 1698.
Although there are references to 'two distinct editions of [A Practical Discourse Upon The Epistle by Jude] in the author's autograph, the first being dated 1704,' (Bibliotheca Anti-Quakeriana, Smith, 1873) this appears to be the first publication of either of these works in printed form.
