A fantastic antique bible. Published in 1771, with historical and critical notes by Reverend Samuel Newton, who was the Rector of Clifton. It is an rare early example of the complete family bible and includes the old and new testament. It is rather distressed and has areas of missing leather to spine and cover. The leather is old and worn and as a stunning simple tooled detail to the front and back. There are many wonderful black and white engravings throughout the book. This is a wonderful example of a rare book, perfect to enjoy and use.


Foxing to pages. Pages missing. damage to spine and delicate boards. Distressed and fragile. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
