About this Item

Ruth Adomeit (1910? 96) was a delightful woman, dedicated book collector, and accomplished bibliographer. Her passion was miniature books, most especially miniature Bibles and Bible parts. She was generous to several institutions: The huge bulk of her collection is now at the Lilly Library. For this miniature book she provides an essay about the Newbery printing firm, the origin and development of miniature Bibles, and the printing of Newbery's 1780 printing of The Bible in miniature, or a concise history of the Old & New Testaments. Tipped in on p. 3 is a leaf from that famous Thumb Bible, the leaf here being pp. 87?88. The edition of this mini was limited to 125 (unnumbered) copies.
