Item Description: 1732. CALMET, Dom Augustin. An Historical, Critical, Geographical, Chronological, and Etymological Dictionary of the Holy BibleÉ London: Printed for J.J. and P. Knapton et al., 1732. Three volumes. Folio (10 by 16 inches), period-style full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. $8500.Scarce first edition in English of Augustin CalmetÕs impressive biblical dictionary, illustrated with 160 copperplate engravings (over 50 double-page) depicting scriptural places, people and traditions, the Duke of Bedford's copy, very handsomely bound.A French Benedictine abbot, historian and pioneering biblical exegete, Antoine Augustin Calmet authored several key theological texts as well as this comprehensive dictionary of "all the Proper Names mentioned in the Old or New Testament, whether of Men, Women, Cities, Countries, Rivers, Mountains &c." In large part it collects explanatory essays from Calmet's "epoch-making" 1707 commentary on the Latin Vulgate, "which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organization, circumcision, the Sanhedrin and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious" (Jewish Encyclopedia). "Most valuableÉ In Volume III is a very extensive Bibliotheca Sacra [a catalogue of editions of the Bible] whichÉ displays great erudition and research" (Lowndes, 350). Illustrated with 160 detailed copperplate engravings, over a third of them double-page; also with engraved vignette headpiece on first text page of each volume. Title pages printed in red and black. First published in French in two folio volumes in 1720; "a supplement (also folio) was added in 1728. An improved and enlarged edition in four folio volumes was published in 1730" (Catholic Encyclopedia). D'Oyly, a parish vicar, and Colson, a mathematician, began their translation prior to 1730, but revised it to take account of Calmet's changes. "The work reveals Colson's interest in arithmetic, calculations, tables and measurement" (DNB). Armorial bookplates of John, seventh Duke of Bedford (1710-71) and John, ninth Duke of Bedford (1766-1839); the volumes hail from the library at Woburn Abbey, Scattered light foxing, occasional light marginal dampstaining. Minor loss to lower corners of a few leaves. Archival tissue repair to fore-edge of frontispiece, Volume I. Expert paper repairs to the dedication leaf and a few splits to folds on folding plates. An impressive production in excellent condition, most handsomely bound. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 101314

Item Description: Pr. for John & James Robertson, James Duncan, James Brown, and Alexander Weir 1777?78, Glasgow, 1777. [with] The Psalms of David in metre . allowed by the authority of the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scotland, and appointed to be sung in congregations and families. Edinburgh: Sir D. Hunter Blair & M.T. Bruce, 1831. 4to. [52] pp. This Bible was owned by Thomas Carlyle (1795?1881), the complex and controversial Scottish man of letters who stood for the Victorian ideal of the Great Man, and whose works were standard household fare for considerably more than a generation. Carlyle grew up in a staunchly religious household, was well read in Divinity, and referred often in both his writings and in conversation to what he once described as => "the truest of all books." The edition of it that he chose here has Ostervald's "practical observations" supplied at the feet of their relevant pages. The New Testament has a separate title-page with the Glasgow, 1777 information, while the Apocrypha (which are signed separately) have a colophon giving "Paisley: Printed by Alexander Weir," 1778. Provenance: With Carlyle's "Humilitate" bookplate on front pastedown and his large formal (manifestly youthful) signature at end of Apocrypha, beneath which is a note in a smaller, less formal hand on his birth; his full name appears in the margin of Jeremiah XV, and just "Thomas" in margin of II Samuel, III:38. Front free endpaper with private bookplate of San Francisco bookseller John Howell, back pastedown with Howell's small professional ticket. Later in The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 4to (25.7 cm, 9.9"). [1128 of 1132] pp. (lacks title-leaf and first leaf of prefatory matter). Herbert 1256; ESTC N471687. Contemporary mottled sheep, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, rebacked in similar calf with original spine laid on; edges rubbed, original spine leather chipped, hinges (inside) unobtrusively strengthened. Bookplates and markings as above, with additional early small slip of earlier printed cataloguing affixed to front pastedown and two instances of dried plant material laid in. Title-leaf and first leaf of prefatory matter lacking; first few leaves present browned with edges ragged and a few words lost from preliminary discourse. Pages trimmed closely, touching headers or notes with moderate frequency; age-toned, with mild to moderate foxing and occasional ink spots. Two leaves with short tears from margins, touching a few letters without loss; leaf of Jeremiah with area torn off with loss of XLIX:22?23 and L:1?2; one other leaf with edges tattered and 12 lines of text lost; one leaf with lower outer corner torn away, affecting a few words; several instances of small tissue repairs, sometimes partially obscuring a few letters. => A well-used Bible of interesting and meaningful provenance.

Item Description: Hugh Gaine, New York, 1792. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good+. First Edition Thus. 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 816 pages; New York, Printed and sold by Hugh Gaine, at his book-store and printing-office, at the Bible, in Hanover-Square: 1792. Contemporary calf boards with sympathetic professional rebacking and replaced morocco label at spine. In 12's, printed in double columns. The contents have been carefully inspected with all pages believed present, including original endsheets. Extensive family records in a close hand relating to the families of Daniel Hodgkins, his daughter Betsy Hodgkins and of Sylvanus Sparks, to whom she was wed in 1812. Family history is listed on the blank leaf between the Testaments and on the verso of the title page and blank area of the facing recto. Condition faults are thus: the first 20 or so leaves are rubbed and a little nicked at the front edge, with some shallow chips at the corners. 6 or 7 of those leaves have short partial closed tears starting from the gutter, which have been closed with archival paper repairs. Leaf A9 had apparently detached and is missing a small triangular chip at the top gutter edge with some loss of text. The front edge of the same leaf is missing all of the margin and some minimal areas of text. Small worm hole in the lower margin of signatures M-O, generally not affecting text, but here and there reaching into the terminal line or two. Similar margin worming top front corner same signatures and likewise at top front corner of signature Z. Expected light toning to pages as expected. A tallow type margin stain to the margins of the first several leaves. Front endpage and terminal printed leaf have short archival paper reinforcements to the top edges. According to Hills "the type for this edition is said to have been set up in Scotland and imported in page form, ready for printing. The type was apparently kept standing. In 1803, the forms were sold to Matthew Carey of Philadelphia. Because of the delay on his own school edition, [Isaiah] Thomas is said to have purchased 500 copies of this Bible in sheets in 1792." It also seems likely that the forms were used by William Young of Philadelphia for his 1794 Bible. A rather decent example, with noteworthy provenance, and with an attractive sympathetic rebacking.

Item Description: Printed at the American Mission Press for the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society and American Bible Society, Madras, 1844. We are told by Darlow and Moule that this is "A new edition of . . . [the Tamil Bible of 1840]; with fresh chapter-headings and dates, translated from the English Bible by M. Winslow." While Winslow was the translator of these elements, "The Old Testament, [was] translated from the original by J.P. Fabricius; [and] the New Testament by the Rev. C.T.E. Rhenius and revised by the Committee of the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society." The first complete translation of the Bible into Tamil appeared in 1727. This is only the second complete Bible in Tamil in one volume. The English title-page is followed by a title-page in Tamil script; the text of the Bible is => entirely in Tamil script, as is the pagination. The N.T. has a separate title page in English and Tamil. The translators were a German missionary of the Lutheran faith who was a scholar of the Tamil language (Johann Philipp Fabricius, 1711?791) and a German-born missionary of the Church Mission Society (Charles Theophilus Ewald Rhenius, 1790?1838). 8vo (22.5 cm; 8.875"). [4], 1104, 388 pp. Darlow & Moule 9125; North & Nida, Book of a Thousand Tongues (1972), 1233 (not listing this edition). Publisher's mottled and speckled dark brown calf; joints lightly abraded and the front joint (outside) starting to open in the lower inch-plus. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 35478

Item Description: R. H. Hinkley, Boston, 1923. This handsome and much-sought edition of the King James Bible was printed at the Merrymount Press and limited to 2574 sets: 1000 on wove paper, 1000 on laid paper, 488 on handmade paper, and 86 on Japan paper. This set is #233 printed on handmade paper and contains 70 fine plates, usually 5 per volume and mostly photogravures after paintings. The edition was designed for smooth reading and the text is set in ordinary paragraphs without chapter and verse numbers. This work has a complicated and as yet not fully explained printing history. It was probably first printed in 1904, with sheets reissued or reprinted at various times in the subsequent two decades. Even the name of the publisher on the title-page varies; "The Grolier Society" sometimes appears in place of Hinkley. Binding: Publisher's quarter tan pigskin spine leather over deeply grained, polished, bare wooden boards with bevelled edges on the three outer sides, in the style of incunable and 16th-century books. Raised bands on spines; spine panels tooled and lettered in blind. Unusual and attractive. 8vo. 14 vols. 70 plts. Smith 209; Hills 2155 (for the 1904 edition and explanation of reissues). Bound as above, with top edge gilt, other edges uncut. Spines darkened and some chipped. One cover detached and present. Much enjoyment. Bookseller Inventory # 20518

Item Description: Pr. at the Baptist Mission Press, Calcutta, 1848. Uncommon first edition: First volume (of four) of one of the earliest complete Sanskrit-language Bible translations. This is John Wenger's revision of the work begun by William Yates; the title-page attributes it simply to the Calcutta Baptist Missionaries "with native assistants." Save for the added English title-page, the entire volume is in Sanskrit, in Devanagari script. The printing of this Bible was spread over a quarter of a century, with the fourth volume not appearing until 1872 Provenance: Early inked inscription: "Rev. S.S. Day [/] From his friend & fellow-laborer in the great work of Missions, Lyman Jewett [/] Baptist Mission House, Nellore, Jan. 18th 1850." Samuel S. Day (1808?71) was the founder of the Telugu Mission at Nellore, the first of its kind; Jewett (1813?97) was the first to translate the Bible into Telugu, an Indian language related to Sanskrit. 8vo (22.2 cm, 8.75").

Item Description: Printed & Sold by Hugh Gaine, New York, 1792. An early American Bible with a fascinating creation story. According to Margaret Hills, "The ruby type of this edition is said to have been set up in Scotland and imported [by Hugh Gaine] in page form, ready for printing. The type was apparently kept standing." It is said that Isaiah Thomas bought five hundred copies of this Bible in sheets, due to the delay in the completion of his school edition of the Bible. Provenance: Timothy Hall's family bible ca. 1800). Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Evidence of Readership (or Something else ? Engagement?): Former owners and their children have filled the blank endpapers with names and scribbles in pencil and ink; the New Testament title-page verso and an endpaper record important family dates, such as Timothy Hall's marriage to Elizabeth Morgan and Harry Harmon Hall's birth in 1801, while endpapers and blank sections of the Bible have provided scribble space and handwriting practice for Harry and a presumably different Timothy. => All of this endearing, none of it off-putting. 12mo (17 cm; 6.75"). [408] pp. ESTC W4514; Evans 24098; Hills, English Bible in America, 40; Sabin 5175; O'Callaghan 45?6. 18th-century calf, spine with raised bands; well-rubbed with leather crackled and loss at spine extremities, especially to top compartment. Ex-library as above, light pencilling on t.-p., pencilled call number and accession number on title-page verso; family penmanship and genealogical contributions as noted. One torn corner, a short tear on N.T. title-page, a handful of leaves trimmed closely with loss of a letter per line; light to moderate age-toning with the occasional spot. => An interesting Bible bibliographically, and a "family" Bible in every sense.

Board edges gilt-rolled; gilt inner dentelles. Spine divided into compartments by narrow raised bands: Each compartment with a frame of treble fillets, within the second compartment the title gilt-lettered, the remaining compartments ornamented within by fine foliated filigree.
