Item specifics

Seller notes: contemporary leather binding now worn and scuffed with rubbing and loss - front hinge cracked - front paste down damaged from the removal of old owners names - lacks front free end paper and preliminary pages - pages 77-80 are missing as are 119/120 & 131/2 - contents show evidence of handling and use with some grubby marks especially the title page as shows in the photos - a very scarce juvenile item regrettably incomplete.
Format: leather bound Date of Publication: 1700-1799
Language: English Place of Publication: London 11th Edition 1792
You are looking at an original 18th century leather bound book 

A Curious Hieroglyphick Bible 
or select passages in the Old and New Testaments represented with emblematical pictures for the amusement of youth 
designed chiefly to familiarize tender age in a pleasing and diverting manner with early ideas of the Holy Scripture 
to which are subjoined a short account of the lives of the evangelists and other pieces adorned with cuts 
The Eleventh Edition  London 1792
measures 90mm x 140mm

each page has a mixture of text and illustration - with the complete text at the bottom of the page 

Thank you for looking - we combine postage for multiple items 
remarkably scarce - well worthy of some conservation despite being incomplete 

increasingly rare after 222 years
