For sale is a most interesting and rare early-C18th bible, in a contemporary full pig skin binding, bearing the owner's monogram and coronet: La Sainte Bible Contenant L'Ancien Et Le Nouveau Testament, Traduite En Francois Sur La Vulgate Par Monsieur Le Maistre De Saci. Divise'e En Trois Tomes. Tome Premier, Qui comprend. A Paris. Chez Quillaume Desprez, Imprimeux & Libraire ordinaire du Roi. Et Jean Dessassartz, rue saint Jacque a Saint prosper & aux trois Vertus. MDCCXVII. Avec Approbations & Privelege du Roi. This being Volume 1. 622p.p.

Bound in full pig skin, this fascinating volume shows the monogram of the owner’s initials, surmounted by a baronet's coronet, in gilt, to both boards. To the foot is a thistle, providing a probable Scottish-French link. The spine, decorated with raised bands and panels stamped in gilt, shows a fleur de lys to each. Ornate gilt inner margins. All page edges stained red.

Externally the binding is extremely worn and dry; losses to the extemities, and the skin is detached from the boards. The original marbled pastedowns are also detached, showing the binder's original strengthening slips, which contain manuscript in the French language. Internally it is, for the most part, clean and bright, and importantly, complete.

Despite its flaws, it is a unique binding which houses a scarce edition of the Bible. Similar volumes are seldom seen on the market.
