Christian's Holy Bible

£90.00

Product description

Remainder of the title - "Library of Divine Knowledge containing the sacred texts of the old and new testaments with Apocrypha, at large. Illustrated with notes and annotations, historical, chronological, biographical, geographical, theological, moral and practical". We are further told that this "Body of Christian Divinity" is here in a new edition, diligently revised. The date is 1808 The first document is an address to the Christian Reader, a single unattributed page. Then comes the Old Testament in two columns of print, each having copious annotations at its lower part.. The same format is used for the Apocrypha but now without the annotations. The New Testament follows, again in two columns. The title page is dated 1811 and the revision and correction of this part is attributed to the Rev J Wood. Again the two column approach is used and now there are some annotations, albeit much less copious than those for the Old Testament. Following the Revelation there is a General Index or concordance in three column format, with A Table of interpretations of Proper Names,, A chronological Index, A geographical index. a Chronological catalogue, The sum of the works of Our Lord and the Proofs of the Authenticity of the New testament by Professor Michaelis.. The whole volume is interspersed by steel engravings variously attributed.
This is a huge book published by Nuttall, Fisher and Dixon of Liverpool at various times and here gathered together into s single volume. It is bound in full leather with gilt decoration around the edges of the boards. The spine cover has a delicate gilt pattern, and the title is in gilt against a black background. There is considerable corner wear of the boards. The front board is essentially separated from the text block being held by a single band. The text block is in good condition although there are tanned pages.
The book was clearly a Family Bible in the full application of the term as the initial end pages bear witness. The earliest handwritten entry if a marriage in 1826 Of Richard Henly, the birth of the children of that marriage and the deaths of his parents and two of his children. There follow two pages of the genealogy of Preswells concluding with a 1944 marriage, Rather poignantly the final entry concludes "no Children" so this family history is no longer relevant.
