[Bibliographical reference: Neuburg, Victor "The Batsford Companion to Popular Literature" (1982), entry on "Religious Tracts", page 163 - "The Methodists were also active in this field - their interest dates from 1782, when John Wesley set up a society 'to distribute religious Tracts among the Poor'. None of their earlier tracts seems to have survived; but John Mason, who was Methodist Book Steward from 1827 to 1864, published a very large number of tracts (1,326,000 copies in 1841, for instance)."]
