A beautiful, illustrated Bible with frontispiece of 'The Finding of Moses' and several plates throughout. Includes an illustrated colour half title has been added with decorative border.

'Brown's Self Interpreting Family Bible, old and new testament. An extensive introduction; marginal references and illustrations; an exact summaryof several books; a paraphrase on the most obscure or important parts; explanatory notes, evangelical reflections.'

John Brown of Haddington (1722 19 June 1787), was a Scottish divine and author. His works include The Self-Interpreting Bible, The Dictionary of the Bible, and A General History of the Christian Church.

Only one dictionary of the Bible, by then long out of print, had preceded Brown's The Dictionary of the Bible. It therefore met a need and after the initial edition published in 1769 numerous editions, variously amended, were issued until 1868.

The Self Interpreting Bible was Brown's most significant work, and it remained in print (edited by others), until well into the twentieth century. The objective of providing a commentary for ordinary people was very successful. The idea that the Bible was "self-interpreting" involved copious marginal references, especially comparing one scriptural statement with another. Brown also provided a substantial introduction to the Bible, and added an explication and "reflections" for each chapter.

Condition - As you can see from pics - boards are not attached, decorative gold metal and clasps are good and in working order, front and back boards + spine has alot of wear. Front few pages are attached to Spine, and publishers page coming loose apart from that pages are quite clean (small amount of foxing) and intact.
