Handsome ( and heavy ) folio Bible, 1795


Title

 

The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments, with a few select notes and embellished with engravings                  
                          

      

   

Publication details

 

First Heptinstall edition, W. Heptinstall, London, [ 1795 ].

 

 

Notes

  

A very handsome English folio Bible. 
The text is the King James translation.
 
Please read the description carefully and examine all the pictures.
 
This copy is bound without the plates and engraved title ( but has the engraved New and Old Testament title pages ).
The binding has been repaired but the text block has not been resewn and nothing suggests that the plates have been cut or torn out. There is no evidence that they were ever bound in.
 
Bearing all that in mind - a low starting price. 
There is no reserve and it will sell.
 
 
N.B. A perfect copy should have three engraved vignette title pages, one for each volume and an additional one for the New Testament, and a further twenty one full page plates. 
 
 
Bibliographical refs.:  Darlow & Moule 1392. Herbert 1399. 
 
A very large and heavy book. Shipping/packing costs ( tracked, insured ) are fixed and we do not mail via 'surface' to overseas addresses.
 
 
 
Binding is contemporary straight grain morocco, boards panelled with gilt ruled lines, spine panelled with paired raised bands, gilt lettered and decorated, gilt dentelles. 
Original marbled endpapers.
Spine is the original but relaid over a new morocco spine. This makes for a very sound and sturdy volume which will be good for a few more centuries of use.
 
Printed double column. All edges gilt.
 
Edges/corners a little worn and rubbed.
Text block entirely tight and sound. 
Some minor creasing of a very few leaves.
Mss. ownership label pasted to first blank leaf. 
Contents good and clean in the main, a few leaves around the endpapers and engraved pages lightly foxed/browned.  
 
 
 
   

There is no 'buy it now' option, sorry.

No reserve.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
