Item Description: [Nürnberg : Koberger, Anton; 1486-1487, 1497]. Folio., 1486. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1486 Anton Koberger INCUNABULA Holy Bible Nuremberg Illustrated Lyra Commentary FAMOUS BIBLE / Entirely COMPLETE / EXQUISITE An exceedingly rare, COMPLETE collection of 4 volumes of the famous 15th-century Koberger Bible. This Greek and Latin Bible includes commentary of Nicolas de Lyra, a 13th-century doctor of theology at Paris, and, according to Darlow and Moule, “[Lyra] may be said to mark the first beginnings of a school of natural exegesis.” Lyra was the first printed biblical commentator and commentary was used by Martin Luther and influenced some of his writings. In fact, Luther is quoted as saying “Without Lyra we would understand neither the Old or the New Testament. Lyra’s influence was most important to the future of Bible commentary, as he took literal meanings of the text rather than inferring mystical or allegorical teachings. Anton Koberger, most-known for his monumental work “Nuremberg Chronicle,” printed this illustrated Bible set. He established the first printing press in Nuremberg in 1470 and went on to publish some of the most important printed works from the 15th-century. This collection includes uniformly bound tomes including one tome from the 1497 issue. One of the Frankfurt copies, part I only, made up with parts II-IV of the 1485 Koberger edition, was bought in 1486; the work must have been put in hand soon after the earlier edition (Ohly-Sack 561).

Item Description: Cambridge: Printed by Tho: and John Buck, printers to the University of Cambridge [1629]., 1629. Cambridge began to print the Bible in the Geneva version in 1558 under a charter granted by Henry VIII in 1534. The Cambridge Geneva Bible appeared in 1691. Meanwhile in London, Christopher Barker had acquired a virtual monopoly in Bible printing by virtue of his patent as Royal printer, granted in 1577. In seeking to break that monopoly, Cambridge University Press and the Bucks insisted that they had the means to produce far better edited editions of the Bible in their university town. In 1628, Charles I ratified Henry VIII's charter, and this Bible was the first publication produced after that act. It was, indeed, significantly more accurate than the Barker editions of the King James Bible, and it began a Cambridge tradition of care for the text. "Another motive probably contributed to the quality of the Bible issued by Thomas and John Buck, printers to the University of Cambridge. Cambridge was making a claim to printing and editorial quality beyond anything their London rivals could produce. Part of this implicit claim was embodied in its conspicuously modern appearance. Roman type, by itself, was nothing new, but the use of u, v, J, and occasionally apostrophes was.The editors made more changes to the text than any other set of editors. By my count (counts of this sort always have an element of roughness), they introduced 221 readings, of which 199 became standard. In terms of frequency, this is roughly one new reading every five chapters. They also confirmed a further 59 variants from the first edition found in some of the earlier editions. The spelling of the names is largely but not entirely a scholastic matter. They introduced 178 spellings, of which 157 have become standard, and they confirmed a further 34. Overall, 493 changes were made, of which 447 (91%) became standard." (Norton, A Textual History of the King James Bible, pp. 83-84). Small folio. .[-]2, ¦6, A-Z6, Aa-Zz6, Aaa-Iii6, Kkk4, Lll-Zz6, Aaaa6, Bbbb4. Elaborate wood-engraved architectural title-page, woodcut headbands, initial letters and tail-pieces. Text in double columns. Separate plain title-page for the New Testament. Contemporary red morocco stamped decoratively in gilt with a seven-paneled, elaborately gilt-tooled spine and gilt turns-ins. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Binding extremities have some slight wear and minor soiling. Gilt is slightly faded. Very minor foxing, light browning, and the occasional small stain, sometimes touching text. Small hole to outer margin of Hhh4, not affecting text. Small hole to lower margin of Rrr6, not affecting text. Former bookseller's ticket on verso of front flyleaf. Contemporary ink inscription on recto of preliminary blank. A very good copy in a remarkable binding in a quarter calf clamshell box. The first King James Bible printed at Cambridge, a model of fine editing, introducing nearly 500 changes that have become standard. Herbert 424. Darlow and Moule 324. STC 2285.

Item Description: John Baskett, Oxford, 1717. 2 volumes, folio. (20 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches). Engraved frontispiece in vol. I, engraved vignettes on general title and New Testament title, engraved head- and tail-piece vignettes, and engraved initials. Contemporary black panelled morocco gilt, the covers with gilt roll-tooled borders around a series of concentric gilt panels with ornamental leafy sprays and corner-pieces, central lozenge gilt composed of similar small tooling, spines richly gilt in nine compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers and gilt edges (discreet expert repairs at top and bottom of joints) Provenance: Sir John Hynde Cotton (armorial bookplate); William Charles Smith (armorial bookplate); Maggs Bros., catalogue 1212, Bookbinding in the British Isles, item 86 First edition of the monumental, splendidly illustrated "Vinegar Bible" -- a "magnificent edition" (Darlow & Moule) here ruled in red and handsomely bound. Commonly known as the "Vinegar Bible" from the misprint "the parable of the vinegar" for "vineyard" in the headline above Luke, Chapter 20. While a contemporary lambasted Baskett for this and other typographical errors in the text, calling it a "Baskett-ful of errors," Oxford historian of printing Harry Carter states that "only Baskerville's Bible is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper" (The History of the Oxford University Press, 1975, I, p. 171) In 1709 John Baskett purchased the exclusive royal patent to print Bibles in England, control of which his family retained until 1799. This magnificent edition of the Bible is among Baskett's most important works, highly regarded for its large, elegant type; its 60 striking copper-engraved vignette head- and tailpieces; and its many delicately engraved historiated initials. Two distinct varieties occur. This copy is Darlow & Moule's issue A, with additional engraved general title page depicting Moses writing the first words of Genesis (here bound as frontispiece); vignette view of Oxford on the general title page; and vignette title page for New Testament depicting the Annunciation, dated 1716. The present example is noted for both its lovely contemporary black morocco gilt binding and for being ruled in red throughout. Similar bindings on this edition of the bible are noted in both the Wardington Collection and in Mirjam Foot's Studies in the History of Bookbinding p. 409. Darlow & Moule 735; Herbert 942.

Item Description: Oxford: John Baskett, 1717. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition of the enormous Baskett Bible, a “magnificent edition, printed in large type” (DMH) and “one of the most beautiful Bibles ever produced” (Campbell, Bible: The Story of the King James Version). “Only Baskerville’s Bible (Cambridge, 1763) is its equal among English Bibles for beauty of type, impression, and paper, and the richness of its decoration gives the Vinegar Bible a unique distinction” (Carter, The History of the Oxford University Press). This is the first and greatest Bible printed by John Baskett, the leading publisher of English Bibles in the first half of the 18th century. From 1710 to 1743 Baskett had a monopoly on Bible publishing in England and Scotland. Baskett’s patron Arthur Charlett described the “proposed splendour” of this work: “We are here printing a most Magnificent English Bible, some very few Copys will be in Vellum for a Present to the Queen & my Ld Treasurer. You know Dr Wallis and Dr Gregory pronounced Mr Dennison absolutely the best Corrector they ever met with. If this Work have not the Advantage of his nice Ey at least in giving the first Directions, and settling the Distances of Lines & Words and the great Art in a beautiful and Uniforme Division of Syllables, with several other minute Regulations, invisible to vulgar Eys, the Work will want of its proposed Splendour . . . Mr Denison says the Fount of letters, is the very best He ever saw, and you know his Ey examines all the Tayls sides & Topps of letters &c. To do justice to Mr Basket, He spares no Cost nor Pains” (quoted by Norton, Textual History of the King James Bible). Despite its typographical beauty, the Baskett Bible included shocking typographical errors. The best-known of these gives the edition its most famous name, the Vinegar Bible, from the misprint “the parable of the vinegar” for “vineyard” in a heading in Luke XX. One buyer wrote to Charlett that the Bible bought for use at Winchester Cathedral was found to have errors in two consecutive chapters and added that “we have reason to fear that the whole edition is faulty.” He warned, “Fame has fastened on the errors: what might have been one of the glories of English printing is one of its curiosities.” Some called the enormous Bible a “Baskett-ful of errors.” This handsome example of the Vinegar Bible is in a splendid period goatskin binding in unrestored condition. Provenance: W. A. Foyle, with bookplate, sold Christie’s, 11 July 2000, lot 499. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert, Historical Catalogue of Printed Editions of the English Bible 1525-1961 942 variant A. Darlow, Moule, and Herbert identify two distinct editions (A and B), observing that the engravings in the B edition often “represent allegorical subjects, and others are merely ornamental pieces, and do not, as in A, generally illustrate Bible incidents” Folio (191⁄2 x 113⁄4 in.). Title and calendar printed in red and black, ruled in red throughout. Engraved frontispiece, vignettes, engraved head-pieces and initials. Blank lower corner torn from title, some browning, a few tears, mostly marginal. A fine contemporary Oxford binding of gilt-tooled black goatskin, covers elaborately paneled with a central lozenge enclosing a star, large corner-pieces with three dropping leaves, a pyramid built up from small tools on each side, spine compartments tooled with sprays, wavy-lines, semi- circular tools, and large corner-pieces, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Minimal restoration. A beautiful copy. One contemporary record suggests that the price for a well-bound copy such as this was a princely £4. 7. 6. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15971373728

Item Description: Durrie & Peck, New Haven, 1833. First edition, one volume expanded to 2, 8vo, pp. xvi, 907; a very nice copy in contemporary quarter tan calf over marbled boards, without the errata slip which was not in all copies. Another edition appeared in 16mo 1841, and the N.T. was issued separately in 1839 and 1841. Of particular interest is the 15-page introduction in which Webster explains "the principal alterations in the language ? made in this edition." Webster was long a critic of the translation of certain passages in the Bible, and had written about them as early as 1784 in his first Grammar. "Unfortunately for Webster," Skeel writes, "the Christian world's reaction seems on the whole to have been that of "F.B.P.," who wrote on the flyleaf of his copy of Webster's edition, "Give[n] me by Aunt N., Octy. 17, 1859. Sent to her for missionaries' use evidently wrongly. They don't want the word of Webster, but the Word of God." Hills, 826; Skeel 784. Bookseller Inventory # 41383

Item Description: 1732. "CALMET, Dom Augustin. An Historical, Critical, Geographical, Chronological, and Etymological Dictionary of the Holy Bible London: Printed for J.J. and P. Knapton et al., 1732. Three volumes. Folio (10 by 16 inches), period-style full speckled calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. $8500.Scarce first edition in English of Augustin Calmet’s impressive biblical dictionary, illustrated with 160 copperplate engravings (over 50 double-page) depicting scriptural places, people and traditions, the Duke of Bedford's copy, very handsomely bound.A French Benedictine abbot, historian and pioneering biblical exegete, Antoine Augustin Calmet authored several key theological texts as well as this comprehensive dictionary of "all the Proper Names mentioned in the Old or New Testament, whether of Men, Women, Cities, Countries, Rivers, Mountains &c." In large part it collects explanatory essays from Calmet's "epoch-making" 1707 commentary on the Latin Vulgate, "which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organization, circumcision, the Sanhedrin and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious" (Jewish Encyclopedia). "Most valuable In Volume III is a very extensive Bibliotheca Sacra [a catalogue of editions of the Bible] which displays great erudition and research" (Lowndes, 350). Illustrated with 160 detailed copperplate engravings, over a third of them double-page; also with engraved vignette headpiece on first text page of each volume. Title pages printed in red and black. First published in French in two folio volumes in 1720; "a supplement (also folio) was added in 1728. An improved and enlarged edition in four folio volumes was published in 1730" (Catholic Encyclopedia). D'Oyly, a parish vicar, and Colson, a mathematician, began their translation prior to 1730, but revised it to take account of Calmet's changes. "The work reveals Colson's interest in arithmetic, calculations, tables and measurement" (DNB). Armorial bookplates of John, seventh Duke of Bedford (1710-71) and John, ninth Duke of Bedford (1766-1839); the volumes hail from the library at Woburn Abbey, Scattered light foxing, occasional light marginal dampstaining.

First Complete Scottish King James Bible and First Edinburgh Book of Common Prayer. An uncommon lot, including the first complete King James Bible printed in Scotland, and the first Edinburgh edition of the Book of Common Prayer. The Bible follows a separate printing of the New Testament in 1628. This edition, it is suggested, was printed in connection with the Coronation of Charles I in Edinburgh in June 1633. Some copies of this printing of the New Testament were accompanied by plates, but these were later additions (ca. 1638), and there are two settings of some of the sheets, which are frequently comingled. In this copy, the catchword at 3G1 is "But"; 2F6v has the reading "carkases"; the catchword at 3G1r is "37 But"; and the headline on 3K3r is "Of Widows." The Book of Common Prayer is the form with catchword "pride" at B1r, and anticipates the ill-fated 1637 revision for the Church of Scotland. The editions of Genealogies, the Concordance, and the Psalms are contemporary editions of the sort that are characteristically found bound with various editions of the Bible originating from London and elsewhere. The Edinburgh Bible is scarce: ESTC locates five copies in North America: Folger, Huntington, NYPL, Newberry and Univ. of Pennsylvania. The Prayer book is also uncommon, with three copies located in North America (Harvard, Huntington and this copy, now properly deaccessioned). Of the Psalms, four copies are located in North America: Folger, LC, UT, and again, this copy. ESTC S123370; S122895; S102072; S90766; and S122325. STC 16394; 2311 & 2311a; 23039e; and 2608.

Item Description: Christopher Barker, London, 1588. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. Early Edition. We offer a Geneva Bible, often referred to as the Breeches Bible, in remarkably sound and clean condition for its age. It is handsomly bound in full leather with five raised bands on spine and with metal corners and clasps; the sturdy boards, with blind decoration and a decorative metal design at centre, are original, but the leather spine is of a later date. The title-page, which is printed on old paper, is probably of a later date too. This is followed by a section of prayers and psalms prior to the complete Old Testament. This initial section is dated 1586 and printed by John Wolfe for Richard Day, rather than by Christopher Barker who printed the Old and New Testaments; the New Testament has an attractive decorative title-page dated 1588 whereas this appears to be lacking in respect of the Old Testament, which has no title-page of its own in this copy. The Old and New Testaments comprise 555 pages; they are followed by a section entitled 'Two Right Profitable and Fruitfull Concordances' printed by Christoper Barker in 1588, and an edition of 'The Whole Booke of Psalmes' printed by John Woolfe, once again for Richard Day, in 1586; this final section has 98 pages. The substantial binding is a little rubbed but is otherwise totally sound; the metal ornamentation is also sound. The flyleaf and first prelim page are rather fragile and a bit ragged with slight loss down the foredge; the same is true of the title-page. The early pages of the section of Prayers that follows are extremely fragile and darkened too with slight loss down the foredge and along the top edge; the later pages of the same section are in better condition overall and the text remains clean, but the final page of this section has an oblique tear from the corner along the bottom edge, although there is no loss of text or of the tail piece at the foot of the page. The body of the biblical text is in remarkably clean condition overall with just occasional darkening and with the odd stain, In the text, from the New Testament onwards, there are however just a few old worm holes. On the verso of the title-page of the New Testament is an inked Note, written horizontally, by the Bible's owner. The note dated April 1746 was penned by Samuell Brook, who states in an inspired way:'This being my last legacy my Grandmother left me to read and practise for my Soul's health. She was a good patron and instructor and by her godly life, she was a lively example of piety; exhorting me to read, understand and practise; for that is the way to be a wise man. She died in the 89 year of her age. This book being in the family an hundred and three score years.' Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001720

Evans dated 1867) — Birth records of the Welsh family Evans, 1847–1874 (in one hand on flyleaf) — Christmas Evans (inscription dated 1935; Evans's probable namesake and ancestor was the famous Welsh Noncomformist minister, Christmas Evans, (1766–1838) $5,500.

Item Description: Hartford, Connecticut: American Publishing Company, 1876., 1876. 4to, original brown cloth, gilt title at spine and upper cover, speckled edges. Title leaf, 892 (Old Test.), [1]-276 (New Test.) pp. The first edition of the first translation of the entire Bible by a woman. Julia Evelina Smith (1792-1886), a suffragist and abolitionist from Glastonbury, Connecticut, translated the Bible in the 1850's in an overt attempt to aid the cause of woman's rights by demonstrating what a woman might accomplish. However, she did not publish her work for another twenty years. In her preface, Smith notes: "It may seem presumptuous for an ordinary woman with no particular advantages of education to translate and publish alone, the most wonderful book that has ever appeared in the world, and thought to be the most difficult to translate. I had studied Latin and Greek at school, and began by translating the Greek New Testament, and then the Septuagint. I soon gave my attention to the Hebrew, and studied it thoroughly, and wrote it out word for word, giving no ideas of my own, but endeavoring to put the same English word for the same Hebrew or Greek word, everywhere. It took me about seven years to accomplish the five translations, at least." In her radical and controversial work, The Woman's Bible, Elizabeth Cady Stanton noted of Smith's translation that copies "will be a rarity in the next century and will be much sought after by bibliomaniacs, to say of nothing of scholars who will want it for its real value." An inscription appears on the flyleaf reading 'Presented by the translator to Alice M. Stokes, Southbury, Conn.' Another inscription reads 'Charles W. Burpee, Hartford.' (Burpee was a Yale graduate (1883) and edited several Connecticut newspapers). An inscription appears on the title-page as well, reading 'By Julia E. Smith, Glastonbury, Conn.'REFERENCES: Simms, The Bible in America, pp. 149-150; Stanton, Elizabeth Cady. The Woman's Bible, p. 151. CONDITION: Good, head and foot of spine partially chipped, small chip out of cloth on lower spine, early white ink inscription below spine title reading 'by Julia E. Smith.,' toning to title page from inserted papers; tight, generally clean copy. Bookseller Inventory # 3068

Item Description: Christopher Barker; John Daye, London, 1579. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Ex-Library - Poor - Incomplete. Early Printing. Geneva Bible. The Old Testament lacks all preliminaries and the first 34 leaves, which is through Chapter 29 in Exodus. 3 additional leaves are lacking, as well 6 partial leaves. Some pages are stained, with some calculations in the margins. The Old Testament's pages extend through leaf no. 378. The New Testament lacks some text at the edges due to trimming, with one leaf's margin lacking a 2 inch width, else fairly complete with it's separate title page. The title page has some ink crossouts to a name. Printed by Christopher Barker in 1579. The "Newe Testament" title page follows leaf no. 378 of the old testament which ends at the bottom - "The Ende of the Prophets (Malachi)". There is no Apocrypha. Pagination of the New Testament: 3 preliminary leaves, 121 leaves of the main text, (blank leaf), 14 leaves. The last work, incomplete, was printed by John Daye in 1579 - "The Whole Booke of Psalmes, Collected into English Meter by Thom. Stern. Ihon (John) Hopkins and Others, Conferred with the Ebrue.". There are 5 preliminary leaves, followed by 62 pages of Psalms, ending with the first 2 lines of Psalm 96. Lacks all leaves after this point. A number of blank pages, and some marginal spaces in the bible have been used for early notations. This Bible belonged to James Lowden of Charlestown, Mass., who has signed his name a number of times, together with his sister Mary, and also his wife Mary, and once by his sister Sarah. The title page of the Psalms is signed "Mary Lowden, James Lowden, 1696". The reverse of the New Testament's title page has an inscription dated March 31, 1717 "James Lowden; sened joynd In full communion at the church of christ in charls town on the 31 Day of march 1717 by mr stevens". This bible also belonged to a Thomas Noyes, with several of his inscriptions on the endpapers. "The property of Thomas Noyes, presented by Mrs. Brown February 1800". The title page of the psalms also contains additional religious inscriptions. Bound in later full calf with the front cover deatched, and the back cover detaching. The spine is worn and is rubbed. Library label on the lower spine, and a theological library bookplate on the inner cover. From other sources I find that James Lowden of Charlestown lived from 1647-1740. His sister Mary lived from 1644-1703. His wife may have been the widowed Mary Howard Bunker, who he married in 1679. James Lowden was the son of Sergeant Richard Lowden 1612-1700, and Mary Cole 1618-1683. Bookseller Inventory # 13408

One purpose seems to set the prooftext goal of his and all later concordances: "I have likewise by themselves placed all, and as many proper and useful English words, as are contained in the same Bible, conducing to the finding out of the most fittest sentences, and best common places, tending to the proving or verifying of any article and doctrine, concerning our Christian faith and Religion, or belonging to any other godly or necessary instruction: so as if thou would understand what is to be learned in the Scriptures touching God or his power, his wisdom, or his love, his mercy, or his truth, his justice, his promises, his plagues, or his punishments." Herrey then appends a long list of who can benefit by understanding various doctrines and ideas. Book ending with colophon 1615. Contemporary previous owner's inscription at verso of title page.

The second (and larger - 179 x 105mm) 8vo edition to be published at the Theatre, Oxford. The first 8vo edition was published in 1682 and the first edition of the K.J.V. to be published at the Theatre, Oxford, was the 4to edition of 1675. There were several folio, 4to and 12mo editions published in the years between but this Bible is of interest as it is the first Bible to be published in Britain after the Ascension of William and Mary on 13th February, 1689. Herbert 812, Darlow & Moule 642. Text ends with Dddd 7 b, followed by tables. No Apocrypha. The Old Testament title page has a cut of the sun with three crowns and an open book to centre. The New Testament title page has a cut of the Theatre, Oxford. There are163 plates. BOUND WITH The Psalms of DAVID in Meeter (sic) Edinburgh. Printed by George Mosman, and to be Sold at His Shop in the Parliament Closs. 1693. Small 4to (sl. cropped without loss of text by binders so that the size is identical to that of the Bible) 80pp. Text ends with K4 a, followed by table.

Extremities worn and spine lightly creased. All edges gilt but sl. faded, more recent endpapers. Pages browned and occ. foxed, two plates repaired, one with sl. loss to text at corner, a few pages torn, one with very sl. loss of text at corner. A very attractively illustrated, useable and complete Bible from this period. The plates are quite explicit, with much nudity and violence displayed. The most lurid and interesting parts of the Bible are all pictorially represented: plagues, boils, the drunk and uncovered form of Noah, Lot's daughters, the temptation of Job by Satan, murder, the resurrection of the dry bones, John the Baptist beheaded, etc. This is typical of a Restoration Bible. In later years, especially under the Victorians, Bible pictures became very much more restrained. Bookseller Inventory # 55208
