A little usual foxing.Tight bright and clean. VERY GOOD INDEED. (viii), 350 pages. A very nice copy. REV. THOMAS SCOTT (1747-1821), (of whom John Henry Newman said `I almost owe my soul') is principally known for his best-selling work A Commentary On The Whole Bible, and as one of the founders of the Church Missionary Society. Thomas Scott was born in 1747 at Braytoft in Lincolnshire. Scott was first a curate in Buckinghamshire in 1772, and during this period, Scott began a friendship and correspondence with the hymn-writer John Newton who was curate of neighbouring Olney. This instigated the examination of his conscience and study of the scriptures that were to convert him into an evangelical Christian, a conversion he related in his spiritual autobiography The Force of Truth published in 1779. In 1781, Scott transferred to the curacy of Olney, Newton having gone to London, and in 1785 Scott also moved to London to take up a post as a hospital chaplain at the Lock Hospital for syphilis sufferers. He would walk 14 miles every Sunday, preaching and taking services at various churches as well as the hospital chapel. While in London he started publishing the Commentary On the Whole Bible that was to make his name. His wife died in 1790, and he remarried in 1791. During his time in London, Scott was, with Newton, one of the founders of the Church Missionary Society, and its first Secretary. In 1803, Scott left the Lock Hospital to become Rector of Aston Sandford in Buckinghamshire where he remained until his death in 1821. He kept up his involvement with the Church Missionary Society, taking in trainee missionaries for instruction. Scott had two daughters and three sons, all three of whom went into the Anglican ministry. His eldest son John Scott (1777-1834) edited and published both his father's life and his papers after his death. He became vicar of St Mary's, Hull. The middle son Thomas Scott (1780-1835) became rector of Wappenham in Northamptonshire (succeeded by his son, another Thomas Scott), and was the father of the architect George Gilbert Scott, some of whose early works are to be found in Wappenham. The third son was Revd. Benjamin Scott (1788-1830), and youngest son (see next item); born April 29, 1788 became Vicar of Bidford and Prior's Walford, Warwickshire, and died August 30, 1830, aged 42 years. SCARCE.

About this Item: Dodge and Sayre, New York: 1814., 1814. Soft cover. Condition: Good. An early and very rare parts issue of one of the great American bibles. Issued (by subscription) in thirty-six parts, usually later bound into five volumes. Amazingly 28 of the original parts survive here. 4to. 240 x 295 mm. Many of the paper wraps are worn and a few are gone. Books in parts are works which were published piecemeal (mainly in the 19th century) over a period of months or years. Each unit usually having a separate magazine-like cover. This method of publishing benefited the publisher as it was thought that the price of a weekly or monthly part at one shilling or a quarter was affordable to a wider readership than the price of pound sterling or $ 5.00 for a bound volume. Since they were meant to be bound by the purchaser, very few have survived into our present era. This early American Bible is extremely scarce in parts format. This edition apparently not in Arents Bibliography of Books in Parts (1957). Shipping extra. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! PARTS 3. Seller Inventory # 004PAR

About this Item: 1880. BIBLE. The Holy Bible With Explanatory Notes, Practical Obsevations, and Copious Marginal References. By Thomas Scott. Glasgow, Edinburgh and London: William Mackenzie, circa 1880. Two volumes. Folio (11 by 15 inches), contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2500.Later edition of Scott’s copiously annotated Bible, illustrated with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, handsomely bound.Although ordained a deacon in 1772, Scott took holy orders more to secure his own comfort than to proclaim Christian doctrine, much of which he did not believe. In the late 1770s, however, a friendship with John Newton (author of the hymn "Amazing Grace") led to the awakening of Scott’s sincerely evangelical faith. As he wrote in his memoir The Force of Truth (1779), "Forever blessed be the God of long suffering and mercy, who had patience with such a rebel and blasphemer, such an irreverent trifler with his majesty, and such a presumptuous intruder into his sacred ministry!" With great zeal, Scott renewed his devotion to both his parishioners and his biblical studies. This commentary won him a large reputation (though not large royalties, due to his publisher’s debts). "Sir James Stephen does not hesitate to speak of it as ‘the greatest theological performance of our age and country" (DNB). First published in 174 weekly numbers between 1789-92, this edition is embellished with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, several after paintings by noted biblical painter John Martin (said to have possessed "the genius that to madness nearly is allied" by Art Journal editor S.C. Hall) and a few after photographs by "the most prominent of the early photographers of Egypt and the Holy Land," Francis Frith (McDarrah & McDarrah, 156). Without preliminary gatherings A-E in Volume I; all biblical text present. See Darlow & Moule 952; Herbert 1366. Houfe, 223. Occasional light foxing. About-fine condition. Seller Inventory # 90067
