The engravings are of a very modest quality and the main claim to fame of this edition is probably that it was issued by the famous publishers of so many distinguished children's books" (Spielmann, 17)."In this edition the page numbers are enclosed within brackets and there are no press figures and no colophon." (ESTC, T134732). "Of the earlier English Thumb Bibles, one of the most familiar and often encountered is The Bible in Miniature, or a Concise History of the Old and New Testaments, printed for E. Newbery in 1780. A common feature of Thumb Bibles is illustration, which varies from crude woodcuts to elegant engravings." (Thumb Bibles of Western Europe and America, Lilly Library). ETC, .en bon état malgré le défaut signalé (good condition in spite of the defects indicated). Seller Inventory # 17980

The frontispiece shows St. Jerome, the next five woodcuts show biblical scenes (one preceding each of the five chapters) and that before the appendix shows a man praying. The present copy is beautifully bound by "the most important bindery working in the eighteenth-century Netherlands", called the stadhouderlijke bindery because of the work it executed for the Dutch heads of state Willem IV and Willem V, Princes of Orange. The centrepiece on the present binding is their lovely three acorn stamp.With the tiny bookplate of the well-known art and book collector Hannah D. Rabinowitz, widow of Louis Mayer Rabinowitz (1887-1957), a notable collector himself. Lacking the opening flyleaf, one quire nearly detached and a tiny smudge in the gutter margin of the last page, otherwise in very good condition. Binding with three tiny wormholes, but otherwise also very good. Seller Inventory # J22BJ53NGGNT
