About this Item

1/1000. Quarto. XII, [1], 347, [1], VIII, [2], 386, [2]pp. Uncut and unopened copy. Original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth, with gold lettering to spines and front covers. Top edges gilt. Pictorial endpapers showing maps of Biblical periods. Color frontispiece and title vignette in each volume. From the author in her Preface: "The Bible is a difficult study, and many, in youth, are bewildered and turn aside for lack of guidance. Here, I have endeavored to select those parts which might properly become a child's first sacred book. In the first volume, the story of the Creation and verses describing and praising its wonders are followed by the lives of great heroes of old who sought to know God and to do his will. [.] The second volume opens with the Life of Jesus, made one account from the four gospels that he may be seen more vividly. The parables and the discourse of Jesus at the Last Supper are printed in italics to set them apart from the narrative. [.] I have taken many liberties with the Letters of Paul, selecting those passages which to me seem timeless, and arranging them by subject. This, it is hoped, will lead to a closer study of the epistles themselves. Many of the Psalms are here, arranged as hymns of praise and worship, psalms of reflection, and personal confession of faith. For those who are older, I have placed together the more philosophical and preceptual books, including Job, [.], and Jonah [.]. The commandments of Moses and of Jesus are repeated, as are God's covenants with his people."Binding of first volume is slightly age-toned on spine, and partly discolored on front cover (thus partly affecting gold lettering). Binding of first volume in overall good- to good, interior, binding and interior of second volume in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 39944
