New York: Oxford University Press, 1994. Hardcover. xi, 222p., first printing, very good condition in a slightly edge worn dj with light scratches on the back panel. The most skillful narrative (up til this date) of the charismatic perfectionist cult of the 1830s, right down to the surprising fate of its two principals. A wonderful read on the origin of Sojourner Truth, when she was Isabella Van Wagenen and part of "Matthias's" cult.
