Beschreibung

Six volumes complete bound in 7, folio [text block 468 x 370mm], splendid contemporary full black grained morocco, unsigned, with very broad Greek key within triple fillet and blind roll around board edges, centre panel with gilt line and floral corners, the spine with gilt decorated double raised bands, lettered, numbered and dated in 5 compartments, very elaborate large centres to remaining two compartments; broad turn-ins with blind roll decoration and gilt squares at corners, pink silk doublures with gilt roll edges, all edges gilt, red and gold silk page marker. Volumes 1-4 contain the OT, volumes 5-7 the NT (the Apocrypha was not published until 1816 and is not here present); printed in two columns of 29 lines in a very large type-face, the words commonly printed in italics in other bibles are distinguished in this edition only by a dot under the first vowel; all volumes have half-titles (save volume 7) and title-pages; 8pp list of subscribers; 2pp 'References to the Text'; 113 engraved vignettes, many half-page; 70 splendidly engraved plates dated 1791-1800 (as wanted) plus engraved dedication volume 1 dated 1791. Edges and corners of boards repaired; some surface damage to boards and board edges now fairly well re-coloured and repolished but with some loss of gilt decoration; front fly-leaf has a long list of ex-pupils who presented the bible to the Rev. Thomas Bloxham of Rugby in 1859; half-title and title-page vols. 3 & 4 have vertical crease; some scattered foxing, especially toward back of volume 1; some plates and vignettes offset to text; vol 6 has some damp stains, mostly faint, in lower margin and fore-margin; a still most handsome set. According to Lowndes this 'splendid' edition of the Holy Bible was issued in 70 parts at a guinea a part; Herbert describes the edition as 'sumptious'. The largest bible produced in English. Will want considerably extra postage. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 55688

Anbieterinformationen

Staniland (Booksellers) was established in 1972. We occupy a small shop in the centre of a pretty market town in England's smallest county. We have two public rooms and stock antiquarian and modern books, mostly literature, philosophy, music, history, classics, architecture, applied arts, theology and topography. We have a good range of library sets in cloth and leather and, occasionally, fine bindings. We are members of the P.B.F.A., the largest booksellers' organisation in the U.K. The shop is usually open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays; appointments to view out of hours can almost always be made at a customer's convenience. Please telephone before setting out if you are travelling far as I cannot always get cover if attending an auction. We are always pleased to receive offers of books for sale.
