Losing and Taking again of the Town of Mansoul.

Advertisement by the Editor.......

Poetical Preface to the Reader by the Author......

This Work was originally published in the form of
a continuous narrative; but, to enable the reader
more readily to pause and reflect, the Editor has
ventured to adopt the plan, first introduced by Mr.
Burder, of dividing it into chapters.

CHAP. I. The original beauty and splendour of Man-
soul under Shaddai; her noble castle; five gates;
perfection of the inhabitants, the origin of Diabolus;
his pride and fall; his revenge; council of war to
reduce the town; Diabolus approaches Eye-gate; his
oration; Captain Resistance slain; My Lord Inno-

cence killed; the town taken........

CHAP. II. Diabolus occupies the castle; deposes the

Lord Mayor, Mr. Understanding, and a wall erected

to darken his house; Mr. Conscience the Recorder

put out of office; very obnoxious to Diabolus and the

inhabitants; Mr. Lord-will-be-will heartily espouses

the cause of Diabolus, and is made the principal

governor; the image of Shaddai defaced, and that of

Diabolus set up; Mr. Lustings made Lord Mayor:

Mr. Forget-good, Recorder; new Aldermen appointed,

-Messrs. Incredulity, Haughty, Swearing, Whoring,

Hard-heart, Pityless, Fury, No-truth, Stand-to-lies,

False-peace, Drunkenness, Cheating, and Atheism;

three strongholds built Defiance, Midnight-hold,

and Sweet-sin-hold......

CHAP. III. The Revolution known to king Shaddai;
his resentment against Diabolus; his gracious inten-

tion of restoring Mansoul; intimations published, but

suppressed by Diabolus; his artifices to secure the

town and prevent its return to Shaddai..........

CHAP. IV. Shaddai sends an army of 40,000 spiritual
energies to reduce Mansoul, under the command of
Captains Boanerges, Conviction, Judgment, and
Execution, who address the inhabitants powerfully,
but with little effect; Diabolus, Incredulity, Ill-

pause, and others, interfere to prevent submission;

Prejudice defends Ear-gate, with a guard of sixty

deaf men........

CHAP. V. The Captains give battle to the town, which
resolutely resists; they retire to winter quarters;
Tradition, Human Wisdom, and Man's Invention,
enlist under Boanerges; they are taken prisoners,
and join Diabolus under Captain Anything; hostili-

ties are renewed, and the town much molested; a

famine and mutiny in Mansoul; a parley; proposi-

tions made and rejected; Understanding and Con-

science quarrel with Incredulity; a skirmish......... 276

CHAP. VI. Lord Understanding and Mr. Conscience

imprisoned; the besieging officers petition Shaddai

for a reinforcement; it is approved; Emmanuel, the

king's son, is appointed to conquer the town; marches

with a great army, and surrounds Mansoul, which is

strongly fortified against him........

CHAP. VII. Emmanuel prepares for war against Man-
soul; Diabolus sends Loth-to-stoop with proposals
for peace, which are rejected; he proposes to patch
up a peace by outward reformation, offering to become


..... 317

CHAP. VIII. The principal inhabitants hold a con-

ference, and agree to petition the prince for their

lives; the castle gates broke open; triumphal entry

of Emmanuel; Diabolus is bound in chains; the in-

habitants, in great misery, petition again and again;

a free pardon is published, and universal joy succeeds 296

CHAP. IX. The liberated prisoners return to Mansoul

with great joy; the inhabitants request Emmanuel

to reside among them; he makes a triumphal entry

amid the shouts of the people; the town is new-

modelled, and the image of Shaddai again erected... 304

CHAP. X. The strongholds of Diabolus destroyed; the
great Diabolonians tried, condemned, and executed,
to Mansoul's great joy.

CHAP. XI. Experience is made an officer; the charter

renewed and enlarged, with special privileges; minis-

try established; Mr. Conscience the preacher, his

duties and rewards specified; the inhabitants are

clad in white; receive many distinguishing favours

from the prince; God's peace appointed to rule; the

unexampled felicity of the town.....

CHAP. XII. Carnal-security prevails; Emmanuel pri-

vately withdrawing, Godly-fear detects it, and excites

the people to destroy Carnal-security; they try to

induce Emmanuel to return......

CHAP. XIII. The Diabolonians take courage; plots are

formed to re-conquer Mansoul; vices, under virtuous

names, are introduced, and do immense mischief;

and 20,000 Doubters are raised to surprise the town 330

CHAP. XIV. Mr. Prywell discovers the plot; prepara-

tions for defence; more Diabolonians executed; the

Doubters assault Ear-gate, but are repulsed; the

townsmen will not parley; flattery tried in vain;

Jolly, Griggish, Gripe, and Rakeall, executed; Any-

thing and Loosefoot imprisoned ......

CHAP. XV. Mensoul makes a rash sortie by night and
is worsted; Diabolus attacks Feel-gate, which he
forces, and Doubters possess the town, doing incre-
dible mischief; Mansoul petitions Emmanuel, and
Credence is appointed Lord Lieutenant........................
CHAP. XVI. A new plot laid to ruin the town, by riches
and prosperity; Emmanuel appears to assist Man-
soul; the army of Doubters routed; he enters the
town amidst the joyful acclamations of the inhabi-

This curious and rare copper-plate engraving, on
a large sheet, was published in 1663; soon after
the author was first sent to prison, the profits pro-
bably assisted in maintaining his family. It is now
engraved from an original impression in 1691, at
which time the words, Author of The Pilgrim's
Progress," and the publishers' names, were added.
It has never been re-published in any edition of
Bunyan's Whole Works, until the present complete
series. It commences with a symbol of the Trinity;
on the one side is the line of grace, from election, by
every step of the ascent to eternal glory; and, on the
other, in a darker shade, the road from reprobation
to eternal ruin. The whole is interspersed with

The head or well-spring of the water of life............... 545
The nature and quality of this water; pure, clear; no
grudge or upbraiding in it; comes from God's very
heart; mighty beyond conception; no fear of excess
or of surfeiting here; the chiefest good, the highest
good; conduct influenced by doctrines......
The application of the whole; this water of lite excel-
lent in nature, abundant in quantity, has a glorious
head-spring, and a singularly good quality; therefore
ought to be abundantly used; bless God for provid-
ing it, and test all doctrines by it...............

as a third part of The Pilgrim's Progress; being
the downward road of a sinner to eternal misery; his
setting out; miserable career; wretched in the grati-
fication of the basest passions, and awfully impeni-
tent in death..........................

Five curious and interesting illustrations of the form
