Book Condition: Very good. 12mo. 108pp. Publishers original drab brown cloth; upper board blocked in gilt with title within a floral design. Ink name on front pastedown. Cloth soiled, binding lightly shaken, gilt rubbed else a very good copy. The date of publication is taken from the Advertisement, page 4. This seems to be the first Oliver and Boyd printing of a hieroglyphic Bible and the second Edinburgh printing after the Doig and Sterling edition of 1814. The accepted publicaton date for this Bible is 1818; three other known copies are known to have been issued either in quarter leather and marbled paper boards, or in printed card covers. Our copy is in what is clearly publisher's cloth with gilt blocked on the upper board. This combination is unknown before 1826. It is likely, then, that the textblock, while printed earlier, was bound after 1826. Exceedingly scarce. Protected in a custom clamshell box. Bookseller Inventory # 17093

Item Description: Derby: printed by and for Thomas Richardson Friar-Gate and for Hurst Chance and Co. London, 1828. 12mo, (140x90mm), 64p. full-page frontispiece and 219 wood-engravings in the text. Extremely worn, somewhat finger-soiled throughout and with the fore-edge and corners to several leaves frayed. Original illustrated front wrapper which is also rather worn, the original rear wrapper lacking. Some restoration has been undertaken and this rare ephemeral little production is preserved in a custom-made cloth covered envelope chemise. Despite its shabby appearance, we think its fair to say that this is altogether a better copy than it sounds, and it is an extremely rare example of a provincially-printed hieroglyphic Bible. We have been unable to locate an earlier example of this fascinating style of religious instruction from this printer, and indeed can locate only one other extant edition which considerably post-dates that which we offer, being published in 1845. Please note that the advised postage is based on an average book, if necessary the postage will be reduced to the correct amount and you will be notified by email. Bookseller Inventory # 16065

Item Description: T Hodgson, in St George's-Court, St. John's-Lane, Clerkenwell, London, 1786. Hardcover. Book Condition: Poor. (title continues) Designed Chiefly To familiarize tender Age, in a pleasing and diverting Manner, with early Ideas of the Holy Scriptures. To which are subjoined, A short Account of the Lives of the Evangelists, and other pieces, illustrated with Cuts. The Fourth Edition; With Improvements. 1786. 12mo. Pp [8] (including frontis) 136. With about 400 cuts in the text. Ownership signature of Sarah Phillips, Her Book, June 10th 1787, on front pastedown. Condition: lacking 6 leaves (12 pages), as follows: 23/24, 59/60, 61/62, 71/72, 119/120, and 131/132. Worn, stained, soiled and very loose. Spine is missing and all the covering has come off the limp boards. Margins are generally good with no loss. ***The frontis and many of the other cuts are by Thomas Bewick, who did much work for T Hodgson when in London. Different ornamental typographical borders surround the pages. Each page has several rebus-like drawings between words, and the full text is printed at the bottom of the page. All early editions are scarce, but it is a curious thing that most surviving copies are defective. Osborne has two early editions, the third and seventh, both of which are missing leaves. (Osborne p 758-9). Each page is complete in itself, and it is possible that leaves were torn out to give to children to take home to learn. Of this fourth edition, ESTC cites copies at BL and NLS only. Bookseller Inventory # 000791

Item Description: Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh, 1111. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fair. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 24mo - over 5 - 5¾" tall. Very tatty but still readable copy of 'A New Hieroglyphic Bible Embellished with Neat Engravings on Wood'. It was published by Oliver & Boyd, Tweeddale Court, Edinburgh. It is undated, through estimated mid to late 1800s, and presumed first thus. It is a very small format paperback booklet, with cream card covers and a stitched binding. There is the remains of a book list printed on the back cover. The edges of the covers are worn and chipped, and the corners are rubbed and very creased. The covers are extremely worn, grubby and scuffed - the print is illegible in places where the surface has worn away. The title page and first few pages are darkened and grubby. The other pages have creased corners, brown splodges, and fingermarks throughout. There is a presentation inscription on the title page verso. Those defects aside, this is a very scarce and fascinating title, the binding is intact, and the text still legible, so Fair overall. Approx. 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches. Images available on request.
