A very rare pamphlet containing a missionary's essay by Reverend M. Wilkinson, in which he contrasts Hindu religious practices with those of Christianity. The study refers to the teachings of the Rigveda, and comments on the rituals of heathenism such as sacrifice, idolatry, ablution and offerings of expiation that are observed to achieve salvation.
Slightly foxed, otherwise in very good condition. WorldCat 930689395 (1 copy).
