Item Description: William W. Woodward, 1804. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Four volumes of a five volume set bound in full original calf with a red title block reading "Scott's Commentary" on spine. Boards rubbed and starting to crack but all still holding. I believe this to be the First American edition of Scott's Bible as title page of V1 states " The First American From The Second London Edition, Improved And Enlarged". Contains; V1 1804, Genesis to Samuel, V2 1805, Kings to Solomon's Song, V3 1806 Isaiah to Malachi, V5 1809 Romans to Revelations. The title page of volume 5 reads "The New Testament of our Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ: Translated from the Original Greek, with original notes and practical observations." Volume 5 also contains the list of subscribers with Thomas Jefferson's name and three pages for family records. I have only found one mark inside, a pencil signature on Vol.1 end paper, otherwise there is no writing anywhere and the pages are very clean. The paper used to print this set was of higher quality than redly available at the time which was part of the reason for the original $20.00 price. The printing was started when 500 subscribers had committed to the purchase and has been printed many times since. This printing of "Scott's Family Bible" is rare in Libraries and at the time of this listing not available for sale. Bookseller Inventory # 000318

Item Description: Hugh Gaine, New York, 1792. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good+. First Edition Thus. 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 816 pages; New York, Printed and sold by Hugh Gaine, at his book-store and printing-office, at the Bible, in Hanover-Square: 1792. Contemporary calf boards with sympathetic professional rebacking and replaced morocco label at spine. In 12's, printed in double columns. The contents have been carefully inspected with all pages believed present, including original endsheets. Extensive family records in a close hand relating to the families of Daniel Hodgkins, his daughter Betsy Hodgkins and of Sylvanus Sparks, to whom she was wed in 1812. Family history is listed on the blank leaf between the Testaments and on the verso of the title page and blank area of the facing recto. Condition faults are thus: the first 20 or so leaves are rubbed and a little nicked at the front edge, with some shallow chips at the corners. 6 or 7 of those leaves have short partial closed tears starting from the gutter, which have been closed with archival paper repairs. Leaf A9 had apparently detached and is missing a small triangular chip at the top gutter edge with some loss of text. The front edge of the same leaf is missing all of the margin and some minimal areas of text. Small worm hole in the lower margin of signatures M-O, generally not affecting text, but here and there reaching into the terminal line or two. Similar margin worming top front corner same signatures and likewise at top front corner of signature Z. Expected light toning to pages as expected. A tallow type margin stain to the margins of the first several leaves. Front endpage and terminal printed leaf have short archival paper reinforcements to the top edges. According to Hills "the type for this edition is said to have been set up in Scotland and imported in page form, ready for printing. The type was apparently kept standing. In 1803, the forms were sold to Matthew Carey of Philadelphia. Because of the delay on his own school edition, [Isaiah] Thomas is said to have purchased 500 copies of this Bible in sheets in 1792." It also seems likely that the forms were used by William Young of Philadelphia for his 1794 Bible. A rather decent example, with noteworthy provenance, and with an attractive sympathetic rebacking.
