19th century large Brown's Self Interpreting family bible.
Large leather bound and gilt metal embellished English copy of Brown's Self Interpreting family bible, approximately 1300 pages, with brass clasps and edge trim, published by Adam and Co. of Newcastle-on-Tyne. It has a hand written name and date inside the front cover, "Joseph Hall, his book, 1872." Inside, there is a hand written family register of births, deaths, marriages, and children's names. It shows that the original owner was 21 years old when he personalised the book. He married the following year, and died in 1921 at age 70.
This copy of the old and new testaments by Rev. John Brown is nicely illustrated with an illuminated title page, many coloured plates, and biblical illustrations. The full leather binding with ribbed spine, has lovely embossed and gilt illustrations from a psalm on both sides. The paper page edges are gilded. It is a more unusual edition of the bible than the ones usually found.
Condition is good, with all pages and binding tight and intact. The leather is a bit faded in colour, there is foxing to pages, and the brass trim has lost some of the original gilding, and is a bit wavy on the back edges. It has been a much treasured family bible.
Size-13.5 inches long by 11 inches wide by 4 inches deep.
Weight-5.5 kilos.
A very nice bible to use or display.
