The Holy Bible with a Devotional and Practical Commentary: Three Volumes

£285.00

Product description

Three large, heavy volumes, each half bound with brown calf spines and corners, with marbled boards. Titles are in gilt on the spines, on brown and black panels; these panels are in excellent condition with just a little shelf wear (possible later replacements?). The calf of the spines and corners is rubbed and dull, it is now a tan colour but there are traces of the original darker brown surface. Volume I has an 8cm split on the rear hinge down from the top edge and adjacent to it a small piece of the calf is missing. Edge and corner rubbing. Red page edges all round. Brown endpapers; the first free endpapers of volumes I and III have a vertical crease from top edge to lower edge. The binding of volumes II and III appears to be tight all through; there is a crack in the rear hinge of volume I a couple of pages before the end but the rest of the binding appears tight. At the beginning of volume I there are pages for family marriages, births, deaths and miscellaneous but there are no entries on any of these. Numerous steel engravings all through each of the volumes, protective sheets and tissues are in place but some of these are now tanned particularly in volumes II and III. Volume I contains the Old Testament books Genesis to Esther, the frontispiece is "Miriam" and the title page is illustrated with "Moses in the Bulrushes". Volume II contains the books Job to Malachi - the 'Poetical' books. Volume III contains the New Testament, the frontispiece is "The Madonna and Child" and the title page is illustrated with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. The extensive commentary on the Old Testament books is by The Rev. Robert Jamieson; that on the New Testament is by The Rev. Edward Henry Bickersteth. Colour map of Egypt in volume I; colour map of Palestine at the beginning of volume III. Text is in double columns with references in narrow inner margins and commentary below. A lovely complete set in original bindings and, given its age (undated but c1880), showing relatively little sign of usage.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
