The Holy Bible - 13th Sep 2016

This is a really stunning edition of the Catholic Bible.  It was published by John E Potter & Co in Philadelphia and contains a history of the Catholic Bible, the Old and New Testaments plus an introduction to the proper reading of the holy scriptures and an account of each book.  

It is superbly illustrated with fine engravings and elegant steel plates throughout. There is gilt lettering & gilt decorative rule to the tooled leather spine. The dark brown leather boards are decorated with gilt rule and a magnificent gilt raised cross to the front and rear boards.  All page edges are gilt and there is gilt dentelle to the board edges. The end papers are cream textured silk and there is a beautiful hand-coloured title page.  

This magnificent volume has to be seen to be appreciated as my poor words cannot do it justice.

We also have a great selection of less ornate and less valuable Bibles if you are looking for one but do come in and see this beautiful book when you visit the shop.
