The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments Translated out of The Original Tongues

£250.00

Product description

....and with The Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, by His Majesty's Special Command. 1830 bible with elaborate tooled black leather covers, portraying castellated church windows on the front and back and niches with a statue on the spine. There is a little surface wear at the corners and at the top of the spine, and the beginnings of two tiny cracks in the hinges at the base of the spine. Bright gilt page edges all round. At the front pastedown there are short cracks in the paper at the top and base of the hinge. The second free endpaper has an inscription of a poem dated 1831. The endpapers are foxed and there is occasional foxing in the text. The binding is generally tight apart from at the last page of the text where the back hinge is cracked. Although this bible is nearly 200 years old it is in remarkably good condition and appears to have been little used.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
