Superb Rare Full Leather And Brass Clasp Tooled King James Holy Bible Old And New Testaments With Double Columns Throughout

Not On Abe At Time Of Listing

Holy Bible Containing The Old And New Testaments Translated Out Of The Original Tongues And With The Former Translations Diligently Compared And Revised By His Majesty's Special Command Appointed To Be Read In Churches (I believe this to be correct for the missing title page and 1826 Oxford Uni Press And Samuel Collingwood as per the New Testament in the Bible)

The New Testament Of Our Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ Translated Out Of The Original Greek And With The Former Translations Diligently Compared And Revised By His Majesty's Special Command Appointed To Be Read In Churches 

Published By Oxford Uni Press At The Clarendon Press By Samuel Collingwood And Co Printers To The University In 1826 For SPCK

cum privilegio

Estimated Value £100-£150+

This superb and rare Holy Bible of 806 pages (Old Testament) and 252 pages (New Testament) is in good condition for its age on the inside with clean pages and tight binding. The King James page has some foxing upon it. There are some inscriptions to the inside rear cover and rear flyleaf in quill ink. The inside front cover and the two flying flyleaves have inscriptions upon them. The binder's details are printed to the inside front cover with the date of May 1826. The Bible is in a beautiful dark tan full leather with ribbed spine. Both brass clasps work perfectly and both covers are detached. The Bible has very handsome tooled covers with the Society For Promoting Christian Knowledge logo to each cover. The Bible comes with a beautiful illuminated panel type card, this is very beautiful and in excellent condition. I'm not sure of the age of that but I think it's fairly old but obviously not 15th Century. The Bible has an attractive ribbed spine. The spine is good and solid with a hairline fracture to the spine but the whole Bible is very solidly and tightly bound. There is some rubbing to the covers, mainly to the corners but the covers are in good condition for their age with the spine in pretty good condition if a little rubbed. The Bible measures 5 3/4" long by 3 1/2" wide by 2 1/4" thick. This very rare, and highly collectable Holy Bible, in just about good condition all round overall for its age is being offered with no reserve.
