Item Description: The Bloch Publishing and Printing Company for the Rev. Abraham DeSola, 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: George V. Jones, No. 123 Pearl St., Boston, Mass., 1882. Hardcover. Large thick quarto. Various paginations. Containing the Old and New Testaments (with both versions of the New Testament); the Apocrypha; a complete Concordance; 100,000 marginal references, etc. Illustrated with color lithographic plates and maps, steel-engraved and wood-engraved plates, and wood-engraved illustrations throughout the text. Bound in at the back are two double-sided color lithographic cardboard sleeves with mounting slots to accommodate 16 family portraits. A rare and beautifully preserved pictorial family bible bound in elaborate gilt-decorated paneled morocco with metal clasps.A bright, fine copy housed in the publisher's very good original cardboard box with a printed paper label. A binder's ticket on the back pastedown further identifies this edition as having been both published and bound by: "Geo. V. Jones & Co., booksellers and bookbinders" in Boston. The binding is signed with a small copyright date in gold ("copyrighted 1881"), and an advertisement printed on the verso of a leaf at the front makes it known that the Bible won the highest prize at an International Exposition in December, 1881: ". the designs and workmanship being of the very best." Laid-in is an eight-page publisher's catalog: "Announcement for 1883," so we think it safe to attribute a date of 1882 to this volume. The Bible is also remarkable for its many fine engraved and lithographic plates printed in multiple colors. All are bright, pristine impressions of high artistic accomplishment, printed on high quality thick paper sheets, with pristine tissue guards. The steel engravings are printed on uncoated sheets, and the wood-engraved plates are printed on lightly coated sheets.The volume is accompanied by an equally fine brass lectern featuring open arabesque metal work on its four rectangular sides, the Last Supper depicted in relief on the front, and an adjustable top piece pierced with an open leaf pattern surrounding the IHS monogram. A brass plate on the back is engraved: "Darovala M.V.B.B., A.D. 1925." *OCLC* locates only one copy of this Bible at the American Antiquarian Society, which they acquired from the Mark Craig Collection of signed Bookbindings.

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

"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".

A handsome and highly evocative relic of this most famous Pacific mission. Before becoming a hero of the Presbyterian mission to the Pacific, Capt. Fraser (1833-1914) of Pictou, NS, had spent time as a blockade-runner, being "involved in at least two attempted smuggling voyages. Early in the war he succeeded in delivering contraband to the South for Pictou merchants. In January 1862 he was at Nassau with Magnet, which he intended to take to the American coast and into Wilmington One of the voyage's backers, Pictou merchant William Norman Rudolf, confided to his diary that he and his associates planned to keep Fraser 'in the trade he is a bold fellow and ready for anything yet thoroughly honest and upright' Rudolf later wrote that Fraser was caught in a second smuggling operation, organised by Halifax partners" (Marquis, In Armageddon's Shadow: The Civil War and Canada's Maritime Provinces, p.47). Late in 1863, after signing on a crew that had promised to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and profanity, Fraser embarked as captain of the Dayspring, a 100 foot fast barquentine of 115 tons built by Carmichael and Co. of New Glasgow, N.S., serving as a Mission supply vessel plying between Australia and the islands of the Pacific. Much of the funding for the ship had been raised by the famous Scottish missionary J.G. Paton, who had recently fled the New Hebrides: "Paton was dispatched to Australia to raise funds for the mission and its new ship, Dayspring. His graphic description in the Chalmers Presbyterian Church, Sydney, of his supposed hairbreadth escape from cannibals won him many sympathizers. Its unwearied repetition in some 470 meetings in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania made his name a household word. In May 1863 after two great farewell meetings in Melbourne and Sydney, which brought his receipts to £5000" (ADB). Fraser's own abiding commitment to the project was demonstrated by the fact that "soon after the keel was laid, [he took over] the actual superintendence and care of the structure" (Cambell and McDonald, A Year in the New Hebrides, Loyalty Islands and New Caledonia A Narrative of the Voyages of the Dayspring, p.45). The Dayspring's main duties related to the mission to the New Hebrides, but on occasion she also entered Eastern Polynesia, "to give such aid as she could to the missionaries of the London Missionary Society, while they were without a vessel of their own" (p.49) visiting Samoa, Raratonga, and the Ellice group. It is clear that her role in the mission went far beyond that pure logistics; "The 'Dayspring' is one of the institutions of the Presbyterian church, and her name is famous throughout all our congregations and Sabbath schools. The vessel is supported by other Presbyterian churches as well as ours ; but Melbourne is her head-quarters, and she is well known, by sight or by report, to all. Bookseller Inventory # 95274

Item Description: American Bible Society, New York, 1895. Hard Cover. 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.

Dalziels' Bible Gallery. Illustrations from the Old: DALZIEL BROTHERS.

Item Description: London: George Routledge and Sons (printed at the Dalziels' Camden Press), 1881, 1881. Folio. Publisher's half vellum, red morocco label, lettered in gilt on the front cover, floriate patterned endpapers. Housed in a custom made blue cloth slipcase. Bookseller's ticket of D. B. Friend (Brighton). Some signs of handling to binding, scattered marginal foxing (clear of images), occasional marginal cockling. A very good copy with excellent impressions of the plates. Title page printed in red & black, 62 wood-engraved plates by the Dalziel Brothers, printed on India paper. First and limited edition, number 338 of 1,000 copies. A sumptuous production, "the artistic level of which is surely higher than that in any other of the Dalziels' collaborative volumes. The book is best seen in the India-paper proof copies" (Ray). Gregory R. Suriano, in his The Pre-Raphaelite Illustrators, draws attention to the fact that the Dalziels' Bible Gallery "was a response to the publication of the Nazarene artist Schnorr von Carolsfeld's Bible Pictures (published in Germany 1851 and in England by Williams and Norgate in 1855)". In fact the brothers had been approaching artists to contribute as early as 1863, and most of the work in the Bible Gallery dates from the 1860s. Copies were frequently broken so that a favourite illustration from the Bible could be framed and mounted but this copy is complete. A high spot of Pre-Raphaelite book illustration.

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, 1880. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near 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. VERY HEAVY SET. WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL POSTAGE. Your satisfaction guaranteed.
