About this Item: Zion's Watch Tower, Pittsburgh, 1886. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. First printing. First printing, 1886, first state with the title page free of any number counts for later printings. 8vo, original dark green cloth gilt, patterned endpapers, folding frontispiece plate on pale blue paper of the 'Chart of the Ages,' 351 (1) pp. A near fine copy with just a touch of soil, minor foxing and wear to folding plate, hinges tight, spine bright, early ownership inscription on the verso of the first blank: 'Mrs. Wm D. Martin's Book, Bought of Miss De La Ann Alten [?] August 17, 1887.' A beautiful copy of one of the rarest books in the Jehovah's Witnesses canon. No copies have appeared at auction in the last several decades to our knowledge and there are currently no copies online of the first printing of this foundational work. Charles Taze Russell, the author and publisher of this book, was the founder of the Bible Student movement out of which the Jehovah's Witnesses and other Bible study groups emerged. He was a prominent restorationist minister in the Pittsburgh area, (b. 1852 - d. 1916). Wikipedia: Beginning in July 1879 he began publishing a monthly religious journal, Zion's Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Presence. The journal is now published by Jehovah's Witnesses on a semi-monthly basis under the name, The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah's Kingdom. In 1881 he co-founded Zion's Watch Tower Tract Society and in 1884 the corporation was officially registered, with Russell as president. Russell wrote many articles, books, tracts, pamphlets and sermons, totaling approximately 50,000 printed pages. From 1886 to 1904, he published a six-volume Bible study series originally entitled Millennial Dawn, later renamed Studies in the Scriptures, nearly 20 million copies of which were printed and distributed around the world in several languages during his lifetime. Many of the books and tracts were published in Allegheny, PA, now the North Side of Pittsburgh. Because we are based in Pittsburgh, we've been keeping an eye out for early copies of Watchtower publications for over 30 years and this is the first time we have ever even laid eyes on this incredibly rare book!.
