About this Item

Thumb Bibles were a favorite gift or reward for American children at the beginning of the 19th century, but they were enough of a curiosity that they found audiences among other classes of readers and collectors as well. This reissue of an early Cincinnati imprint, retaining the Truman, Smith, & Co. copyright but adding the information that this printing was stereotyped by J.A. James of Cincinnati, is richly illustrated with => 26 full-page wood engravings. The text (on pages that are a hair less than 2" tall) offers its young audience favorite Bible stories: Jonah and the whale, Adam and Eve, Exodus, the Nativity, the Crucifixion, and so on; it reproduces that of Bible History (New York: S. Wood, 1813, and later). Many copies reported to NUC Pre-1956 and WorldCat are mutilated and incomplete, this one lacking the frontispiece. Binding: Brown publisher's cloth, spine lettered and stamped in gilt, covers framed in blind around floral design with front flower gilt, all edges gilt. Provenance: Pencilled signature of Wilie Sheldon on front endpaper; later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 32mo (5.4 cm; 2.125"). [3]?192 pp.; illus. ("plates" counted in pagination). Lacks frontispiece. Adomeit A79; American Imprints 23308. Bound as above, lightly rubbed especially to gilt areas, faded and somewhat dust-darkened with a few small spots. Lacking frontispiece and marked as above, light age-toning with a few spots, many corners bent or worn away. Housed in a much larger mustard buckram clamshell with gilt lettering and evidence of library label on spine; clearly, valued. Bookseller Inventory # 36597
