About this Item

The title page states "Embellished and enriched with forty engraving." but in fact there are at least 45, each within a decorative border and many with the legend "Engraved for Nuttall's Family Bible and variously dated 1802-1806, though many have the latter date. Finely bound in contemporary full tree calf with extensive gilt decoration to the spine, red title label, gilt - apparently by J. Gibson of Plymouth (there is a contemporary decorative binder's label to the rear end paper - "J. Gibson Publisher and Bookbinder, 7 Frankfort-street, Plymouth"). Large, fine red morocco label to the inside front board, decorated and lettered in gilt (using the same edging tools as the binding), with details of the Sloggett family, detailing members of the family born between 1761 and 1804 (male members only - see image). Original marbled end papers. Binding very good with a little gentle wear, rear top corner a little more worn, and a very small area of insect damage to the lower spine area, joints fine and not cracked. Contents good and tight, some pages towards the rear lightly affected by damp to the lower outer corner, a few pages with light water stains, but not obtrusive and all pages remain in tact. End papers a little worn, that to the rear somewhat damaged, with loss. A very good copy of this impressive bible in a handsome contemporary binding and with known provenance. Bibliographic note: This bible is not listed in Herbert; he lists the bible of a year earlier (no. 1479) but not this reprint and presumably as many of the engravings in this bible are dated 1806 they were engraved specially for this edition. Size: Folio (25 x 38cm). Bookseller Inventory # 023530
