The Life of Jesus of Nazareth Eighty Pictures by William Hole [First Edition]

£6.99

Product description

This is an ornate copy of the 1906 first edition of 'The Life of Jesus of Nazareth: Portrayed in Colours' with 80 pictures by William Hole, a preface by William Sinclair, Archdeacon of London and introductory note by George Adam Smith. The book originally contained 80 full colour illustrations interleaved with texts from the Gospels and was published by Eyre & Spottiswoode, London.

This hardcover book is in poor condition. It has the original dark green bevel edge decorated cloth cover with gilt decoration on the front, but the binding is very cracked, just holding together. There is bumping and fraying to the edges and the top edge gilt is very worn. Pages inside are foxed. Pencil marks in the Prefatory note, and on the front endpapers. Pages are torn or loose throughout, with pages v/vi, ix/x missing completely. The image accompanying verses No. 7 & 8 is severely torn, and the images for 23 & 24, 51& 52 are missing.

Despite imperfections, this is a beautiful and readable religious text.
