1707 Holy Bible: Exquisite original Silver Clasps and Corners/Bosses

This Bible has been sold - for similar Bibles like this one that are still available click here to  visit our Antique Vintage Bible Store!

A 1707 King James Holy Bible with Exquisite Silver Clasp binding!
Perfectly working original silver clasps with hallmark, as well as dated to the inside of the clasp. All silver corner pieces (bosses) as well as central silverwork present and in stunning beautiful condition with intricate gold tooling to the covers and spine.
A highly attractive Bible & Prayer book in a superb contemporary binding of full paneled calf with 4 raised bands to the spine, the five compartments with richly gilted floral patterns; applied to the binding contemporary silver clasps and catches by an artisan craftsman, eight corner-pieces and two centre-pieces, the silverwork with applied decoration. The front centre-piece bears the initials E. M. and the rear centre-piece the date 1707; (in fine manuscript to the final blank is written Elizabeth Mogridge her book Anno qui domine 1707). To the verso of the clasps the silversmith has stamped his initials MM and the date 1716, so it would appear that the silverwork was added a few years later. All edges gilt, original marbled paper end papers.

General title for the Bible continues Newly Translated Out of the Original Tongues and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised. The book of Common Prayer with separate title page is dated 1704. Both the New Testament and the Book of Psalms have separate title pages dated 1707. Text ends (last page of Revelation) on Tt10b; one leaf of tables after the OT and another at the end of the NT. (No Apocrypha - as issued).

 

This pocket-sized King James Bible is in a VERY GOOD condition. Complete Bible and complete Book of Common Prayer and Psalm Book. The binding very good with a little rubbing and a little wear to the head of the front joint; silverware all very good and clasps still working well. Contents very good, the odd catch-word, etc. shaved but mostly fine. Leaf size approximately 122 x 70mm. Little reading wear and apparently not heavily used. A fine bible and prayer book in a superb binding. A TRUE museum piece and/or an exceptional GIFT!
