About this Item

Six works in one. Old boards, roughly rebacked with clear tape. Pp. 128, 96, 96, 55, 48; 24. Titles a little creased or browned. Some evidence of waterstain in the rear that does not effect readability. Joanna Southcott (1750-1814), daughter of a Devon farmer, visionary and mystic, claimed the gift of prophecy from about 1792, prophesied the second coming and that she would give birth to the Son of God. From 1804 to 1814 she lived at the house of her wealthy patron and secretary Jane Townley. In 1814, at the age of 64, she apparently became pregant, but soon after she died from brain disease. Her prophesies and claims gave her many followers and caused considerable controversy both at the time and later, but most of the related books were published provincially and are now scarce.
