Notes

James Bicheno (d. 1831) was a Baptist minister and schoolmaster in Newbury, Berkshire, with a strong interest in prophecy. This work, his most widely published, interprets the events of the French Revolution as foretold in Revelations and heralding the downfall of the pope. It was republished several times in the USA, and this is one of several London issues this year, with varying imprints. All are scarce, and ESTC locates just three copies of this one in the UK (Edinburgh, NLS, Oxford) plus half a dozen in the USA.
