Holy Bible Illustrated; New Ruby 32mo

£24.99

Product description

Holy Bible Illustrated; New Ruby 32mo - OUP.

Presented in stiff cream mock-velum sleeve. Bruised to most edges and open to both hinge crowns. Faces with nice sheen; peculiar (possibly home-made) asymmetric thumb guide to fore edge, but still quite awkward to remove the book.
OUP sticker to base: "Oxford Text Bible with 15 coloured illustrations; New Ruby 32mo."

The bible within is very attractive, in light sage with lightly embossed rampant lion motifs in cream. The French Morocco boards have the texture of serpentine - almost soapy. As-new throughout; cream spine panel with gold titles. Bevelled corners. Tasteful personal dedication dated May 1956; nicely marbled end paper. Embroidered white tape marker. All edges gilt with elegant planing to fore edge. Very nice watercolours and a few biblical maps to rear.

This is a fine book to hold that is very appealing to the eye, having suffered no visible wear.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
