A COMPLETE 1629 FOLIO-size, amazingly PRISTINE King James Holy Bible in a SUPERB condition, containing the Old and New Testaments bound together with the Apocrypha, Speed's genealogies plus map, Book of Common Prayer and the Whole Book of Psalms. The paper of this almost 400 year old Bible looks as fresh and clean as if it was printed yesterday! By far one of the most clean and best preserved very early FOLIO-size KJV's Bibles still in existence. This Bible must have been stored in dark, dry space for most of its life, it looks like it has never been used and has not been exposed to any sunlight. Amazing - undamaged and complete with ALL (5 !!) title pages!

It opens with "The Booke of Common Prayer: And Adminiftration of the Sacraments: And other Rites and Ceremonies of the Chvrch of England. Imprinted at London, by Bonham Norton and John Bill, Printers to the Kings moft Excellent Maiestie. MDCXXIX." Some pages are printed in a combination of black and red.

Next the complete "Geneaologies Recorded in the Sacred Scriptures, according to euery family and tribe: with the line of ovr Sauiour Iefus Chrsift observed from Adam to the bleffed Virgin Mary by F.S.". The complete 34 page Speed genealogies plus the RARE two page Map of Canaan!

Next, "The Holy Bible. Conteyning the Old Testament and the New. Newlie Translated out of ye Originall Tongues and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised by his Maiesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be read in Churches. Printed at London by Bonham Norton and John Bill, Printers to ye Kings most excellent Maiestie. Anno. 1629." Separate title page for the New Testament. Contains the Apocrypha. Including all the prelim pages and engravings plus colophons. The New Testament title has an ornament woodcut border. An engraving representing Adam occurs before Genesis.

Lastly, also bound with: "The Whole Booke of Psalmes: Collected into English Meeter, by Thomas Sternhold, John Hopkins, and others: conferred with the Hebrew, with apt Notes to fing them withall. Set foorth and allowed to be fung in all Churches, of all the people together, before and after Morning and Euening Prayer." Printed in M.DC.XXIX  for the Company of Stationers: London. 

This FOLIO sized Bible is in EXCELLENT and PRISTINE condition. The cover has been rebound with brown leather over the original wooden boards, spine has 5 raised bands with the text "Hole Bible" and "1629". Binding is SOLID that makes for a solid and very useable book that can be used and read on a daily basis. Bible is complete and without any writing. All pages have large to huge margins. Nowhere is any of the text in danger of being affected by re-cut paper (as often is found in these old Bibles). EXCEPTIONALLY clean, only a few occasional coloring spot or stains (a few on the first pages of the Book of Common Prayer). An almost unbelievable early 17th century antique treasure.
