Description

 

 The “Bible” of Bibles- The Gold Standard of English Bible collectors guides. 1968 revision and expansion of the 1903 work begun by Darlow and Moule. An absolute must for every collector.

Near Fine,  dark blue hardcover, very clean and solid. 549pp. Size: 4to – 10 x 7 1/2 x 1 3/4″ ,

Since its publication in 1903, the Historical Catalogue Volume I, compiled by T.H. Darlow and H. F. Moule, has proved of inestimable worth to librarians and bibliophiles. This Revised and Expanded edition of that original Catalogue devotes an exceptional amount of space and attention to English editions of Holy Scripture. Of these books, the Bible House Library possesses one of the most complete collections in existence and thus it was realized early on that this section of the Catalogue demanded an entire volume. It will be seen that enumerated here are nearly a thousand separate editions of the English Bible, or some part of it, published before the close of the eighteenth century. In order to exhibit the historical development as completely as possible, every issue of significance has been noted – even in the very few cases where such as issue was not represented in the Library. With regard to the bibliography, no pains were spared to give full descriptions, including the register of signatures, of all early editions. [From prefatory material]
