The first small folio edition of
the King James Bible in amazing condition professionally rebound in
beautiful dark-red leather with an exquisite metal clasp.
This COMPLETE, very early King James (KJV) Holy Bible in a VERY GOOD
to EXCELLENT condition, containing the Old and New Testaments bound
together with the Apocrypha, all printed in Roman type. The title
border (both Old and New Testament title) resembles that used in
some editions of the Bishop's Bible; at the top are the royal arms
supported by figures representing Justice and Mercy; below is a
tablet bearing the words Cum Priuilegio Regia Majestatis, supported
by a lion and a unicorn; at the bottom are the initials C.B. The
large engraving before the text represents Adam and Eve.
Complete, with all title pages,
colophon and illustrated first chapter initials. Also bound with a
very extensive genealogy of the Major General Walter Henry Smith in
beautiful handwriting. When the Bible was rebound extra pages were
added that were used for these extensive notes and records, so they
do not interfere with the Bible text block.
This folio sized Bible is in
a VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT and VERY USABLE condition. Complete Bible text. Leaves
are very clean. Few ownership scribbles on the original pages, but
almost all genealogy notes are on special added pages. VERY
attractive, museum quality, historical first small folio edition of
the Authorized Version.
