The Complete Family Bible: or, Christian's Divine Library.

£139.99

Product description

"The sacred text of the Old and New Testament, illustrated with notes, theological, historical. critical, and explanatory; wherein the mis-translations are corrected, the seeming contradictions reconciled, the difficult passages explained, and the sacred writings displayed in their genuine purity and sacred lustre. The whole forming a copious commentary, with practical improvements and general reflections on each chapter, adapted to the meanest capacities, and calculated to promote the edification and everlasting happiness of Christian families." By Rev. Joseph Sutcliffe. 1808.

A real tome, weighing 8.5kg and measuring 27x38x11cm. Minimal wear and tear for a book of this age and unwieldiness. Leather has been well worn. Textblock is in two parts divided by one line where the binding has come loose. Edges are well worn and the spine has a significant piece peeling away. Foxing inside, but nothing invasive.

As seen in photos, at the point where the binding is loose, words regarding births and deaths of people during the 1800s have been handwritten in. This as seeped through to the reverse side of one page, but seems otherwise not tobe any imposition. It is, in fact an interesting few pages.

Overall an excellent piece of religious history, and an impressive piece of craft. It's mass alone is something to behold. Moreover, that every page is imprinted top to bottom with scripture, and the book's 'copious commentary', and that this was done in 1808 is magnificent.

Oxfam Shop Frodsham Street

We are a city centre store in the heart of Chester. We consist of two shops joined together. 

In our book shop we sell a variety of items from rare stamps and coins to first edition books. There is always something to be bought; whether it's a new novel for a long bus journey, a DVD to have a lazy sofa day or a postcard with a beautiful picture of our idyllic city. 

In our clothes shop we sell women's, men's and children's clothes and accessories. Whether you want a new dress for a day at Chester Races, new clothes you won't have to worry about getting covered in mud, or a tie for that important interview; we have it here at Chester. 

We also sell home wares; such as collector's items, linens and children's toys. Whatever you need why not pop into Frodsham Street and help support a fantastic cause.
