Item Description: 1762. BIBLE. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments Cambridge: Printed by Joseph Bentham, Sold by Benjamin Dod, 1762. Two volumes. Quarto, contemporary full red morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated boards and spines, raised bands, olive morocco spine labels, patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. $15,000.1762 "Standard Edition" of the King James Bible, with engraved allegorical frontispiece, distinctively bound in contemporary, elaborately gilt-tooled morocco.First published in 1611, the King James version is "the most celebrated book in the English-speaking world Other translations may engage the mind, but the King James Version is the Bible of the heart" (Campbell, 1, 275). This 1762 edition marks the "standard edition" of that magisterial translation. "In this Bible a serious attempt was made [by S.F. Parris] 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" (Darlow & Moule 854). Handsomely full contemporary goatskin elaborately gilt-tooled with a border composed of floral, insect, star and crown-and-scepter tools, with two flame-burst rings occupying each board’s center, one inside the other, enclosing a ring of cherubs and the sacred monogram, IHS. Incorrect rendering "thy doctrine" retained in 1 Timothy 4:16. Includes Apocrypha. With engraved allegorical frontispiece (by Grignion after Hayman) and separate New Testament title page. Issued the same year in a folio edition, very few copies of which now survive. Herbert 1143. Infrequent scattered light foxing. Stunning contemporary morocco in excellent condition. An outstanding Bible, distinguished in elaborately gilt-tooled binding. Bookseller Inventory # 82928

Item Description: 1727. BIBLE. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments Oxford: John Baskett, 1727. Two volumes. Quarto, contemporary full red-brown elaborately gilt-tooled morocco rebacked with original spines laid down, raised bands, black morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $9200.Impressive 1727 Oxford quarto edition of the magisterial King James Bible, illustrated with six folding maps of "sacred geography" and 260 fine engravings by John Sturt "from designs of the greatest masters," beautifully bound together with a 1726 Book of Common Prayer, concordances and metrical psalter in a stunning elaborate morocco binding gilt-tooled in a "cottage roof" design."If everything else in our language should perish, [the King James Bible] would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power" (Macaulay). First published in 1611, the King James Bible is "the only literary masterpiece ever to be produced by a committee and was the work of nearly 50 translators [who] lived at a period when the genius of the language was in full flower" (PMM 114). Bound with a 1726 Oxford edition of the Book of Common Prayer—"as a source of spiritual inspiration, it is for most Englishmen second only to the Bible" (PMM 75)—at the front of the second volume, preceded by an engraved frontispiece portrait of King George II. Sturt’s engravings, printed and sold by Richard Ware, were designed to be fitted and bound with various "house" or family Bibles such as this one. In this copy, his fine engravings depicting dramatic scenes and important people from Scripture appear two to a plate with a lovely engraved ornament depicting angels beneath; the 130 plates are appropriately bound throughout the biblical text. The six engraved folding maps of Sacred Geography (also published by Ware, 1725), each measuring approximately 15 by 18 inches when unfolded, are also bound in at relevant points. Handsomely bound in elaborately gilt-tooled full contemporary morocco using a "cottage roof" design of fleurons and foliate corner pieces within a wide, ornamental border. Separate New Testament title page dated 1726. Apocrypha bound following Revelation. Bound with a 1726 edition of Downame’s concordance and a 1723 edition of Sternhold and Hopkins’ popular metrical psalter. With additional engraved allegorical general title page; title page for Sturt’s engravings; and title page printed in red and black for Sacred Geography. Apart from the 1727 general title page, the Bible conforms to Herbert 979, a 1726 Baskett quarto, with 1726 New Testament title page, Apocrypha present and Revelation ending on leaf 4I2b (although Herbert’s copy lacked all, including title page, preceding F3). Griffiths 1726:3 (prayer book). Contemporary gift inscriptions ("Ann Bridges, a present from her Father the first visit she paid him after her Marriage"). Previous owner’s signatures, address labels to front pastedowns.Scattered light foxing, occasional light embrowning. Closed tear along hinge of folding map "Situation of Paradice" (Genesis 3). Closed tear to plate following 4A1, Volume II, not affecting images. Minor paper restoration in Volume II to plates following 3S3, 3U2, 3X7, not affecting images. Binding bright and fine.

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

The Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments, and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church, According to the Use of the Church of England: Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David, Pointed as they are to be Sung or Said in Churches.

This printing of the Bible may actually have post-dated the accession of George II to the throne in June 1727, since the Old Testament title page is dated 1727 and the type newly reset (perhaps in commemoration), whereas Baskett's other quarto printings of that same period were pulled from earlier standing type (see Herbert 967). The BOCP bound into this copy was printed from type standing from 1719 (Griffiths, 151). With Apocrypha and Index. Separate title pages for the Old and New Testaments, and the Psalms in Meter. Text of OT ends on Ddd8a, the Apocrypha on Qqq4b, and NT on Iiii2b. Griffiths 1726:3. Herbert 979, 983. Not in Darlow & Moule.

Item Description: 1869. BIBLE. The Holy Bible. London: George E. Eyre and William Spottiswoode, circa 1869. Quarto, contemporary full blind-tooled brown morocco rebacked with original spine laid down, brass clasp and catch, beveled edges, all edges gilt. $3500.Handsomely bound 19th-century King James Bible, extra-illustrated with six mounted albumen photographs by pioneering Holy Land photographer Francis Firth, with brass clasp.This volume contains a late-19th century edition of the magisterial King James translation of the Bible (first published 1611) extra-illustrated with 20 mounted albumen photographs of the Holy Land by Francis Frith. A founding member of the Liverpool Photographic Society who is considered "the most successful of the photographic entrepreneurs following the calotype era" (Parr & Badger, 18), "Frith is the most prominent of the early photographers of Egypt and the Holy Land. He built his own 16 by 20-inch wet-collodion plate camera, put it in his wicker camper/darkroom, and in 1856 embarked on his first trip up the Nile. The result was a series of pictures that still amaze in terms in their clarity, precision and visual impact. His direct eye-level frontal photography produced some of the most exquisitely detailed images of his day" (McDarrah & McDarrah, 156-7). "His photographs of the landscape and monuments were taken under dangerous and difficult conditions. He slept in tombs and caves and was attacked by wild dogs and brigands; inside an unventilated tent he worked in desert temperatures with collodion chemicals that boiled on the glass plate negatives" (DNB). Frith’s images in this Bible include two views of the Sinai wilderness, the convent at Mount Carmel, the stone pyramid of Dashûr, Banias and the Parthenon. Contemporary family record to front free endpaper. Brass clasp engraved with owner’s initials.Occasional light foxing. A distinguished Bible in nearly fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 89940

Item Description: 1880. BIBLE. The Holy Bible With Explanatory Notes, Practical Obsevations, and Copious Marginal References. By Thomas Scott. Glasgow, Edinburgh and London: William Mackenzie, circa 1880. Two volumes. Folio (11 by 15 inches), contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2500.Later edition of Scott’s copiously annotated Bible, illustrated with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, handsomely bound.Although ordained a deacon in 1772, Scott took holy orders more to secure his own comfort than to proclaim Christian doctrine, much of which he did not believe. In the late 1770s, however, a friendship with John Newton (author of the hymn "Amazing Grace") led to the awakening of Scott’s sincerely evangelical faith. As he wrote in his memoir The Force of Truth (1779), "Forever blessed be the God of long suffering and mercy, who had patience with such a rebel and blasphemer, such an irreverent trifler with his majesty, and such a presumptuous intruder into his sacred ministry!" With great zeal, Scott renewed his devotion to both his parishioners and his biblical studies. This commentary won him a large reputation (though not large royalties, due to his publisher’s debts). "Sir James Stephen does not hesitate to speak of it as ‘the greatest theological performance of our age and country" (DNB). First published in 174 weekly numbers between 1789-92, this edition is embellished with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, several after paintings by noted biblical painter John Martin (said to have possessed "the genius that to madness nearly is allied" by Art Journal editor S.C. Hall) and a few after photographs by "the most prominent of the early photographers of Egypt and the Holy Land," Francis Frith (McDarrah & McDarrah, 156). Without preliminary gatherings A-E in Volume I; all biblical text present. See Darlow & Moule 952; Herbert 1366. Houfe, 223. Occasional light foxing. About-fine condition.
