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: 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: 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
