Full title: The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; translated out of the original Greek; and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. Appointed to be read in Churches.
An early Victorian New Testament from St Matthew through to Revelation. The book has been heavily annotated to the blanks and margins by a previous owner in marvellous Victorian handwriting. There is a previous owner's inscription to the title page, "Mary J G Hawksworth from her affectionate brother, February 4th, 1840".
An attractive copy but with wear. The leather is rubbed and bumped with some staining to the lower edge. The leather to the spine is quite rubbed but remains attractive with a blindstamped design. The pages are clean, bar a little age-toning. The inner binding is secure for the most part but the first gathering (endpaper to first page of text) is starting to loosen.
