About this Item

This is the extremely collectable 1880 edition presented in three-quarters black morrocco leather on deep-toned olive, black and gilt marbled boards with gilt lining and gilt titling with 7 raised bands on spine. Very handsome. Internally, front marbled endpaper is loose and cracked on edges. Includes frontis and bio of artist. Illustrations are intense and moving and in very good condition, portraying episodes from The Expulsion from the Garden to The Death of the Pale Horse. A rare and fascinating book. Magnificently Illustrated by DORE, Gustav. "For centuries, the Scriptures have furnished the favorite themes for artists. The great French painter and designer, Gustav Dore, devoted talent to this sacred volume. The entire work, in two folio volumes, is too large and costly for general circulation. The publishers, therefore, have issued in this volume a selection of one hundred of the choicest pictures, and these are accompanied by a descriptive narrative intended to furnish all the information needed for the proper understanding of the persons or incidents portrayed." Being offered at a very affordable price due to some light water staining and rippling on top left corner fo the first 20 or so pages. Exterior all page edges gilt totally unscathed. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 004102
