The Holy Bible Containing the Old Testament and the New, Translated Out of the Original Tongues.
Published 1800, Cambridge, England by J. Burges.
c. 1,000 pages. Text in English. Small near pocket size.
Attractive antiquarian full leather bindings, smooth spines, gilt bands & title lettering.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. With an 1860 gift inscription.
Binding gently age worn but still appealing, old crease down center of spine from the book having been opened, leather and joints scuffed and rubbed but still supple, small chipping at spine ends, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, some lower page corners bent (see pic), various evidence of having been read like most bibles of this era, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
