The Natural History of the Bible. Thaddeus Mason Harris.

£49.99

Product description

"Or a description of all the quadrupeds, birds, fishes, reptiles,, and insects, trees, plants, flowers, gums, and precious stones mentioned in The Sacred Scriptures collected from the best authorities, and alphabetically arranged." Printed for Thomas Tegg, 73 Cheapside, Thaddeus Mason was the librarian of Harvard University and was offered the position of Secretary to George Washington but could not take up this post through ill-health. This book represents an enormous amount of research. This particular copy is whole and firm in its binding although the boards and spine are heavily worn. In half calf. Internally it is clean and bright although given its near two hundred years there is some spotting and discolouration. For its age it is in good condition but would appear to have had much use over the years. The eight attached images will give a good impression of the book. A curious addition is a modern dust jacket which at least hides the weary spine and covers. Other than a small "W. Williams" inscribed at the top of the title page, there are no other marks or inscriptions. Not ex- library.
