Holy Bible, the Text According to the Authorized Version and a Commentary from Henry and Scott with Numerous Observations and Notes from Other Authors; Also the Marginal References, Maps of the Countries Mentioned in Scripture & Various Useful Tables

(London: The Religious Tract Society, 1836, 1837).

A VERY HANDSOME SET OF THE IMPORTANT AND SCHOLARLY USEFUL BIBLE FROM THE RELIGIOUS TRACT SOCIETY. The Authorized Version augmented by extensive commentary, tables, notes, prefaces and arrangements. The bindings are likely publisher’s originals, in which case we suspect this was their best format. Item #24977

Six volumes in the preferred bound as three format. A very early issue of the Tract Society’s important scholarly version with commentary. With 8 maps, 6 of which printed in colour and 4 of which being folding. Large 8vo, contemporary full calf, the boards with chain tool boarders in blind and triple-line gilt frames, the spines beautifully gilt tooled in large compartments between double raised bands gilt tooled, two compartments with black morocco labels multi-ruled and lettered in gilt, board edges gilt tooled, turn-ins decorated in blind, endpapers, flies and page edges handsomely marbled. viii, 496; iv, 540; iv, 452; viii, 552; x, 562, viii, 524. A very well preserved and handsome set, the textblocks all quite fine, maps fine, second volume only with some chipping and loss to the front free-fly, the bindings handsome and proper with just a bit of minor wear or rubbing to the tips or extremities, less so then would be expected.
