About this Item

"57th edition," according to the verso of the title-page; multiple issues of the King James version were released by the American Bible Society in 1865. The present, attractively bound example of the Society's "Nonpareil, 12mo" edition includes a separate title-page for the New Testament and four family record pages (unused, in this case). Binding: Brown blind-embossed calf with ornate strapwork designs surrounding a central cartouche, "blank" areas textured with a wavy pattern like moir? silk; spine with blind rules "forming" spine compartments. Evidence of readership: A few passages marked with pencilled X'es and a few pages turned in for ready finding (e.g., the 23d psalm; Luke 7, a chapter of miracles; Revelation's description of heaven). Two slips laid into Hebrews citing verses with names following ? suggested reading from or for those people? Prayer memos? Tall 12mo (18 cm; 7"). 765 pp. Not in Hills. Binding as above, a little rubbed. Blind pressure-stamp of the York County Bible Society and private ownership signature on front free endpaper. Age-toning and some foxing, brown stain in lower margin of last few leaves (i.e., "Contents"). => A rather nice copy made particularly interesting by its signs of use. Bookseller Inventory # 34165
