quality reprint from an original copy of this very rare 1885 Bible translated by Mrs. Helen Spurrell -it is not actually original (that is, "paleo-Hebrew"), but unpointed square Hebrew; -the first and one of the only translations undertaken by an individual woman (rather than an entire Bible translating committee); very scholarly; VERY rare. -Also contains an Introduction by the Modern Publisher concerning the Hebrew Language, and a Table of Contents Page -(Modern Publisher has added new larger page numbers at the top of each page, since the page numbers of the originals at the bottom were so incredibly small). -The print size of the text was also enlarged 8.5% from the original. The format was also enlarged giving generous margins to the left and the right of the text and several lined, blank pages were also added in the back of the Bible for notes. -This rare Bible is not available new anywhere else and has not been since the 1985 printing sold out over a decade ago... there are 1 or 2 1885 originals on the used market for $17,000-25,000. Used copies from a 1985 printing sell for $500 or more. -7.38" x 9.25" x 2.5" Hardback, 850 pages, thick paper.
