Item Description: Christopher Barker, London, 1583. Cloth. Book Condition: Good. Pulpit Bible. Measures 15 3/8" X 11 X 4 1/4". Herbert 178. One of the rarest and most beautiful Bibles of the 16th Century, the "Noblest" and the largest of the Geneva Bibles ever printed. This is the last black letter folio Geneva version. The page is printed in an impressively large black letter font; the appearance of the page is reminiscent of the size and font of the 1611 first edition of the King James Bible. In fact, the black letter font is larger than in the 1611 KJV; which had, in double columns, 72 lines per page, as opposed to the 59 lines in double columns to the page seen in this edition; the page size is virtually the same. Condition: the bible is rebound in a sturdy modern red cloth, with spine labels, and is well and tightly bound. Pages are numbered on the recto only. There are over 1300 pages total: OT and Apocrypha paginates 532 leaves. There are 137 leaves in the NT. The Bible text is complete with all pages present for the OT, Apocrypha, and the NT. The book starts with the full page Garden of Eden engraving, but is missing all other preliminaries, which comprises the first 21 leaves. Professional tape repairs to the Eden engraving, General Title page, and the first 3 leaves of Genesis. The General Title is probably not original to the book; a panel with the imprint date has been added to a title page that probably came from another smaller folio edition. First leaf of Genesis also has a open tear repair, with the last words of about 8 lines added in old script. Second leaf of Genesis has some loss at top of the page due to a paper tape repair. The first 100 leaves have light dampstaining, or tidemarks. Lacks the title pages to the Psalms and to the Apocrypha. The NT title page is in good condition, with the map of the Holy Land on verso. Some light dampstaining appears again in Revelation. Text ends at the end of the First Table with professional tape repairs; the Second Table is not present. Some toning & foxing, and some infrequent markings, and seven total leaves with repairs. All other text pages have ample margins, with virtually no edge-wear. The text is in overall very good condition; Any questions, please ask. Due to the size and weight of this book, the postage will be more. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall.

Item Description: 1732. CALMET, Dom Augustin. An Historical, Critical, Geographical, Chronological, and Etymological Dictionary of the Holy Bible. 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 Calmet's 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 valuable. In Volume III is a very extensive Bibliotheca Sacra [a catalogue of editions of the Bible] which. 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: 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).

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

Day [/] From his friend & fellow-laborer in the great work of Missions, Lyman Jewett [/] Baptist Mission House, Nellore, Jan. 18th 1850." Samuel S.

Item Description: American Bible Society, New York, 1850. Beautifully bound large-quarto family Bible => with the register leaves recording sad losses to the little family of the owner. The marriage of Harriet Smith to Charles Henderson is noted in a neat hand, and so are the births of two daughters, but the daughters are then recorded as having died at 13 and a year and a half, with Charles's own death following some years later. Preserved in the Bible is a proud and happy note from one of the girls, Clara, to her father, written when she was young enough to be printing all in capitals in pencil. Binding: Pebbled black leather sumptuously gilt: The covers tooled with a design composed of a base and pavilion formed of foliated C and S curve volutes enclosing fine foliated strapwork. Ornate columns support the pavilion, which encloses a shell. From the base hang a pair of acroteria, and the base supports a vase of flowers on a rocaille. 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. All edges gilt. Provenance: Presentation copy to Harriet E. Henderson with her name in gilt centered on the front cover. 4to (27.7 cm, 10.875").
