A classic apocalyptic treatise foretelling the doom of the world. In 1863 authorship was attributed to a Mr. Beale, "a Master of Arts at the University of Cambridge" by M. Baxter (see McIver The End of the World: An Annotated Bibliography 334). It examines political and international signs of the times (earthquakes, the Crimean War, the comet), and remarks on their similarities with those that preceded the destruction of Jerusalem. Harkening back to the failed revolutions of 1848 the author decries atheism, communism, socialism, and "red republicanism" as instruments of Satan. A fascinating, sweeping attempt to link biblical history with the end of the world. The folding maps include "The Seats of the Lost Ten Tribes," "Jerusalem and its Environs," "The Land of Israel According to the Covenant with Abraham," "The Ground Plan of the Temple of Ezekiel," and "The Holy Oblation." Halkett Dictionary of Anonymous and Pseudonymous English Literature p. 140. Item #140945762
