Description:

i-iv (blank), v-viii (title pages), ix-x (To the Most High and Mighty Prince James .), xi-ixx (The Translatours [sic] to the Reader), ixx-xxiii (The Names and Order of all the Books . , The Proper Lessons ., Kalendar), A6-[X]6, [Y] 4. The Old Testament ends on Qqqq3 and the New Testament ends with [X]4. No pagination provided Large folio (500 x 312 mm; 10-3/4 x 12-3/8 inches). brown leather over thick cardboard, spine with raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Title page dated 1716 is a full page engraving by Sturt after J. Thornhill(?), title page dated 1717 printed in red and black (as is the "Kalendar"), and with engraved illustration of the University by M. Burghers. Each Book has a steel engraved large chapter head illustration and tail piece; numerous engraved initials. Some of the contributors to the illustrations are J. Thornhill, M. Burgers, L. Cheron, and L. Laguerre; Claude du Bose, L. du Guerier, C. Dupui, Cochein, and Michael van der Gucht were the engravers. The Bible is printed in two columns of 59 lines. The New Testament has its own title page dated 1716. The interior is in fine condition, with only a very few leaves a little browned, but no torn, ripped, or repaired leaves, and would make an excellent candidate for a new binding and thus becoming a truly splendid copy.The Bible was called by Baskett's contemporaries "a Baskett-ful of errors" because of all the typgraphical errors it contained, and specifically so because of the heading in Luke XX which had a misprint of "vinegar" instead of "vineyard" in the Parable of the Vineyard. However, John Baskerville's King James Bible of 1763 is the only other Bible that experts consider worthy comparisons to Baskett's 1717 Bible for its beauty of type, impression and paper. [Herbert 942]. Spine worn with actual spine strip lacking, hinges weak, boards worn with patches of the leather missing. Interior contents largely fine, including the engravings, a few leaves occasionally a bit browned Variant of the "Vinegar Bible" with Acts IV:24 error but not "vinegar" in Luke XX.

Book Description Cambridge: Printed by Joseph Bentham, printer to the University, by whom they are sold in Cambridge, and by Benj. Dod bookseller in Ave- Mary Lane, London, 1760., 1760. Not paginated. A-3C8 3D2 3E-T8,3U2. Bound up in two volumes. Attractively bound in contemporary dark blue-black morocco, with decorated gilt panels, raised bands and compartments, a.e.g., marbled endsheets. Text in double columns. Joints, spine extremities and edges a bit rubbed, but quite sound, foretips slightly bumped, two engraved armorial bookplates in each volume, the largest having a portion of the individual's name effaced in each instance ('Nathanael Hillier' remains), some early small ink annotations (see below), otherwise a very good set. An attractive edition, published the year of the death of Cambridge editor F.S. Parris (or Paris), and two years before Bentham's publication of the edition denoted as 'standard' by Darlow & Moule, crediting the final revisions by Parris and overseen by H. Therold, in folio and quarto formats. Although the index of Books includes the Apocrypha, it is not present in this copy, nor in the copy described by Darlow & Moule. The second volume commences with Isaiah, and the New Testament has its own full-title. An early, if not the original, owner charted his/her progress reading the entire text by inserting in neat ink manuscript the month and day each chapter was read. ESTC locates four copies in North America. DARLOW & MOULE (HERBERT) 1131. ESTC T90382. Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 66035

Book Description Cambridge: Printed By Joseph Bentham, Printer to the University; Sold By Benjamin Dod, Bookseller, at the Bible and Key in Ave-Mary Lane, near St. Paul's, London. 1762 1762, 1762. FIRST ROYAL QUARTO EDITION. Two volumes bound into three with separate title page for the New Testament. The Apocrypha bound after the N.T in the third volume. This copy, measuring 304 x 230 mm, is much larger than the dimensions listed in Herbert's revised edition of Darlow & Moule (255 x 186 mm), and is possibly a Large Paper issue. Engraved frontis by C. Grignion after F. Hayman. Fine and bright throughout, the books are bound in contemporary full brown decorative panelled calf bindings. Spines with raised bands. Compartments double ruled in gilt. Brown labels with double ruled border either side of a dotted border, lettering and 2 cherub designs, all in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Some minor bumping to the corners and small amount of loss to the spine ends and bottom of one board. A couple of cracks in the hinges but all still firm and strong. Overall a superior set of this uncommon and important Bible in fine quality and decorative eighteenth century leather bindings. The set looks great on the shelf. Published the same year was a folio edition, printed from the same setting of type, but "lengthened" by leading between lines, which is considerably rarer. It was thought that this rarity was due to a fire at the warehouse of the London Bookseller Benjamin Dod. A circa 19th century manuscript note in the British Library folio copy states "Only six copies were preserved from a fire at the printers" although more copies have come to light since that was written and it is now thought that the writer had confused the 1762 bible with the 1769 Oxford folio Bible that was damaged in a warehouse fire in January 8th 1770. This edition, usually referred to as the Standard Edition, contains the first printing of the hugely significant recension of the King James Version text by Dr. Francis Sawyer Parris, Master, and Librarian, of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge and Henry Therold, fellow of Magdalene. "In this Bible a serious attempt was made to correct the text of King James' version by amending the spelling and punctuation, unifying and extending the use of italics, and removing printers' errors. Marginal annotations, which had been growing in some Bibles since 1660, although excluded from others, were finally received into the place they have occupied ever since, sundry new ones being added. Lloyd's dates and chronological notes were also adopted and increased, and the marginal references were much enlarged" . Herbert, p. 274. (Ref; Historical catalogue of printed editions of the English Bible 1525-1961 by T. H. Darlow and H. F. Moule, revised and expanded by A. S. Herbert.). Bookseller Inventory # 8220
