LATE 19 TH-CENTURY AMERICAN FAMILY BIBLE, ILLUSTRATED WITH NUMEROUS PLATES AND WOODCUTS

BIBLE. The Holy Bible. Philadelphia: William J. Harding, 1875. Thick quarto, contemporary full brown morocco gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2000.

Large late 19th-century American family Bible, the beloved King James text, augmented by comprehensive Bible study aids and illustrated with over a dozen plates and numerous in-text woodcuts in the prefatory matter.

First published in 1611, the King James Version of the Bible has exercised an incalculable impact on piety, language and literature throughout the English-speaking world. It is probably the text most commonly found in decorative family Bibles such as this one, which, in addition to featuring such Bible study helps as a dictionary and concordance, as well as a metrical psalter, is illustrated with over a dozen plates and numerous large, in-text woodcuts in the dictionary section. Young owner signature, notations on family registry pages.

Fine condition.
