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: 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: 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").

Item Description: Dodge and Sayre, New York: 1814., 1814. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. An early and very rare parts issue of one of the great American bibles. Issued (by subscription) in thirty-six parts, usually later bound into five volumes. Amazingly 28 of the original parts survive here. 4to. 240 x 295 mm. Many of the paper wraps are worn and a few are gone. Books in parts are works which were published piecemeal (mainly in the 19th century) over a period of months or years. Each unit usually having a separate magazine-like cover. This method of publishing benefited the publisher as it was thought that the price of a weekly or monthly part at one shilling or a quarter was affordable to a wider readership than the price of pound sterling or $ 5.00 for a bound volume. Since they were meant to be bound by the purchaser, very few have survived into our present era. This early American Bible is extremely scarce in parts format. This edition apparently not in Arents (1957). Shipping extra. PARTS 3. Bookseller Inventory # 004PAR
