Item Description: The Bloch Publishing and Printing Company for the Rev. Abraham DeSola ND (ca 1880), Cincinnati, 1880. Hardcover. Book Condition: g. Third edition. Small folio. VII, [1], 1011, [5]pp. Full dark brown-stamped morocco with gold lettering on spine and front cover. Dentelles. All edges gilt. Silk textured endpapers. Engraved half title. Frontispiece portrait of Moses protected with a tissue guard. This work marks a major milestone in scripture translation as it is the first complete translation of the Bible by a Jew. Indeed, in the early 19th century, most American Jews couldn’t read the Bible because they were not literate in Hebrew and an adequate English translation didn’t exist. Isaac Leeser’s "The Twenty-Four Books of the Holy Scriptures," first published in 1854, attempted to fill this need. Soon after its publication, this work became the standard for American Jews not conversant in Hebrew as well as an important contribution to Jewish American culture. Leeser spent 17 years on this landmark translation, relying almost exclusively on Jewish scholarship. This rare third edition is a large-size illustrated version that was sold door-to-door. It contains 9 tissue-guarded steel engravings from celebrated paintings, including: Philippe de Champagne's "Moses Presenting the Tablets of the Law" (Frontispiece); J. Clark's "Hagar and Ishmael"; Dobson's "Happy Days of Job" and 13 photomechanical reproductions of illustrations by Gustave Doré. Includes four blank leaves for the recording the rite of holy matrimony, marriages, births, and deaths at rear. Some age wear on binding with edges rubbed and front cover stained. Front board starting. Back board darkened and slightly scratched. Offsetting along edges of endpapers. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+ to very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 34197

Item Description: American Publishing Company,, Hartford, Conn.:, 1876. [AMERICAN WOMAN SUFFRAGE: 1876: HOLY BIBLE: FIRST COMPLETE TRANSLATION BY A WOMAN]. SMITH, Julia E. THE HOLY BIBLE: Containing the Old and New Testaments; Translated Literally from the Original Tongues [and with a Preface] (by Julia E. Smith). [Elizabeth Cady Stanton, in 'The Woman's Bible,' notes-- "There are two styles of binding, cloth and sheepskin" (p. 151)]. Large octavo, full brown sheepskin, embossed on spine and both covers, spine stamped in gilt: "HOLY BIBLE / Translated by Julia E. Smith," pp. 892; 276.Julia E. Smith, in her preface, begins: "It may seem presumptuous for an ordinary woman with no particular advantages of education to translate and publish alone, the most wonderful book that has ever appeared in the world, and thought to be the most difficult to translate. I had studied Latin and Greek at school, and began by translating the Greek New Testament, and then the Septuagint. I soon gave my attention to the Hebrew, and studied it thoroughly, and wrote it out word for word, giving no ideas of my own, but endeavoring to put the same English word for the same Hebrew or Greek word, everywhere. It took me about seven years to accomplish the five translations, at least. I think never has the sense of the Original Tongue been altered." Julia Evelina Smith (1792-1886) and her sister Abby Hadassah Smith (1797-1878) were noted Connecticut suffragists, abolitionists, and tax protesters. They were two of five spinster sisters born to Zephaniah Hollister Smith. "Julia Smith. hoping to aid the suffrage cause by demonstrating that a mere woman had accomplished . she published at her own expense a translation of the Bible she had completed." [see 'Notable American Women,' III, p. 302-304; cf. Stanton, 'The Woman's Bible,' p. 151]. Inscribed by translator Julia E. Smith to the "Woman Suffrage Club of South Newbury, Ohio," on the front flyleaf: "To the Woman Suffrage Club of South Newbury Ohio, Presented by Julia E. Smith of Glastonbury, Connecticut." A later ink inscription is present on front flyleaf, stating: "Mrs. Allen presented this Bible to Mrs. L. A. Redfield the evening before the family left South Newbury.". Also present is an autograph letter from Irma Redfield McIntyre (dated 1943), stating, in part: "The handwriting under the presentation inscription, is that of my sister, Winifred Redfield Johnson. The book was evidently given to my mother, Mrs. L. A. Redfield, by Mrs. D. M. Allen, who was the leader of the suffrage movement at South Newbury. [signed] Irma Redfield McIntyre" (tipped onto verso of front flyleaf). A scarce book in the marketplace, reportedly published in an edition of only 1000 copies. Inscribed by Julia E. Smith. Only two copies have appeared at auction since 1975 (per ABPC). Front cover detached, but present, spine is worn and quite chipped, rear hinge started, first few leaves detached (but present), text otherwise generally fresh and clean (complete and sound). Elizabeth Cady Stanton, in 'The Woman's Bible,' notes: "They will be a rarity in the next century and will be much sought after by bibliomaniacs, to say of nothing of scholars who will want it for its real value.". First edition thus; first complete translation of the Bible into English by a woman; variant issue binding, bound in full sheepskin [also issued in cloth]. Bookseller Inventory # 67149

First leaf trimmed at the top with loss of part of heading, otherwise all 14 original leaves in very good state. "Most copies (of the Great Bibles of 1539-41) appear to be mixed; doubtless, many copies were originally issued in this state. The problem is further complicated by the fact that certain leaves of some editions were reprinted, apparently because the supply of these particular leaves had run short and they were required to complete copies then being made up. Fry attempted to ascertain what leaves properly belonged to each edition and to make a list of the 'reprinted leaves' . his work remains a monument of painstaking research". Herbert, The English Bible 1525-1961, page 25-26. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST. Bookseller Inventory # 13845

Item Description: American Bible Society, New York, 1895. First edition of this Bible, volume I only; folio (14" x 13"), 164 leaves, embossed in the New York Point Alphabet for the Blind, which is a system of tactile raised dots, similar to Braille. Contemporary 3/4 calf over tan cloth covered boards, spine ruled in gilt; spine label is absent. New York Point for the Blind was invented by William Bell Wait (1839-1916), educator for the Blind, as an alternative to the "Line Letter" system, consisting of raised letters of the standard alphabet, which was in use in the late 19th Century and lasted for several decades. But Braille had been invented by Louis Braille in 1824, but fell into disuse, only to be revived in the early 20th Century and Braille remains today, the standard in reading and writing for the Blind, throughout the world. Internally, quite clean, with the embossed dots in very good condition; small loss at head of spine and corners worn through; a very good copy, now quite scarce on the market.

Item Description: London: George Routledge & Sons, 1881. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition, 42.5 x 34cm [folio], in publisher's vellum w/gilt brown & red designs to covers & spine, gilt & red decorative title to fr. cover & spine, bevelled edges, cream ep.s, 67 unpaginated card-stock leaves w/72 proof wood engravings by the Dalziels printed on tinted India paper laid on rectos. Stated Limited Edition (374/1000) printed at the Camden Press, London. By 1862 the Dalziel Brothers were making preparations for an illustrated edition of the Bible, & over several years commissioned drawings from many of the finest illustrators of the period. However, for various reasons the project never reached fruition, & 72 of the 90 accumulated engravings were finally published without biblical text in 2 sizes, a bound regular edition of 1000 numbered copies & a large De Luxe issue of 100 vellum-backed portfolios w/the loose-leaf sheets laid in. Because the regular issue was priced at 5 guineas, "our Bible commercially speaking, was a dead failure, some 200 copies being all that were sold. The balance of the number printed were disposed of at prices which we will not here record" ("Brothers Dalziel" 1901, p.256). In any case all evidence points to 4 separate issues: 1) a pre-publication issue w/the Dalziels's undated Camden Press imprint; 2) the trade issue w/Routledge's 1881 imprint, limited to 1000 copies; 3) the special large paper issue in portfolios, also w/Routledge's 1881 imprint, limited to 100 copies; & 4) the American issue w/the 1881 imprint of Scribner & Welford, New York, who sold them in "[port]folio, vellum, & calf" for US$35.00 each. While Ray suggests (p.96) that the portfolios were for presentation only, at least 3 copies of the regular issue were also presented; for example, Harvard's is a "Press Copy" inscr. by the Dalziels to R.H. Hutton, Editor of the "Spectator." And while some copies of the regular issue have only 60 leaves of plates, all known portfolios (as in the copy described here) have the full complement of 62. Binding Very Good (some rubbing to vellum, & moderate foxing to ep.s); contents Very Good (moderate foxing to 1st & final leaves not affecting the plates). White 146 ("the praise lavished on these designs is amply justified; the book is monumental") & passim, Dalziels passim, Reid 49 ("the most sumptuous of all our books") & passim, Fredeman 90.12, Ray 158 ("the artistic level is surely higher than that in any other of the Dalziels' collaborative volumes"), de Beaumont 21, Goldman 50 & passim.

Item Description: Cassell, London, 1880. Leather. Book Condition: Fine. Gustave Doré (illustrator). 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 2 volumes. Folio. [viii], 644; viii, 645-878, [iv], 163, [1], [iv], 279 pp. Small folio. Black polished calf, red leather labels lettered in gilt. All edges gilt. 220 full-page woodcut illustrations by Gustave Doré. "Doré and the artisans in his studios produced hundreds of different woodcuts illustrating scenes from a wide variety of biblical stories from both the Old Testament (including the Apocrypha) and the New Testament. His biblical illustrations were first published in 1865 in France and reprinted in the late 1860's in various German, English, and other editions. These large-folio multi-volume Bibles (with about 240 illustrations each) were very heavy and expensive, but smaller editions were soon also published. Most of the illustrations are identical in the various editions, but some illustrations are not found in certain language editions, and in other cases as slightly different illustration is found for the same biblical passage. Doré's illustrations were extremely popular in both Europe and America in the last decades of the nineteenth century. For example, over 1.5 million people visited the Doré Exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1896. Several publishers also printed smaller collections of his biblical illustrations without the complete text of the Bible in so-called "Doré Bible Gallery" editions. "His artistic style greatly influenced some of the early biblical films, especially those of D. W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille. In fact, some of the scenes from DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1923 & 1956) look remarkably similar to the corresponding biblical illustration by Doré." --- Catholic-resources. Trivial foxing here and there. A very handsome copy, in very nice condition, with no leather issues. Bookseller Inventory # 1906

Item Description: New York: Scribner & Welford, 1881. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. First US edition, 42 x 35cm [folio], in ¾ leather over publisher's vellum boards w/gilt & red title & design to fr. cover, 67 unpaginated card-stock leaves mounted on stubs, w/72 proof wood engravings by the Dalziels printed on India paper laid on rectos. Stated Limited Edition (73/1000) printed at the Camden Press, London. By 1862 the Dalziel Brothers were making preparations for an illustrated edition of the Bible, & over several years commissioned drawings from many of the finest illustrators of the period. However, for various reasons the project never reached fruition, & 72 of the 90 accumulated engravings were finally publ. w/o biblical text, in 2 sizes: a bound regular edition of 1000 numbered copies; & a large De Luxe issue of 100 vellum-backed portfolios w/the loose-leaf sheets laid in. Because the regular issue was priced at 5 guineas, "our Bible commercially speaking, was a dead failure, some 200 copies being all that were sold. The balance of the number printed were disposed of at prices which we will not here record" (Brothers Dalziel 1901, p.256). This "balance" was acquired by Scribner & Welford of New York, who sold them in "[port]folio, vellum, & calf" for US$35.00 each (contemp. advert). The present copy is one of these. Binding Good (rebacked & recornered w/russet pigskin, new facsimile floral ep.s [the original ep. leaves are inserted at rear], & some rubbing & staining to boards w/moderate loss to title); contents Good (outer edges of some leaves tidemarked & darkened [plates are clean]). White 146 ("the praise lavished on these designs is amply justified; the book is monumental") & passim, Reid 49 ("the most sumptuous of all our books") & passim, Fredeman 90.12, Ray 158 ("the artistic level is surely higher than that in any other of the Dalziels' collaborative volumes"), Goldman 50 & passim.
