Unpaginated + Index + Tables of Scripture Measures, Weight and Coins (by R.R. Richard, Lord Bishop of Peterborough, 6pp.). The New Testament, also printed by Baskett, is dated 1735. Contemporary full leather, subtly blind stamped with dentelle and solid rule. Rebacked, with five raised bands and the title stamped in gilt. Extra-illustrated with twenty engravings, dated 1813-1816, published by Brightley & Co. (Bungay). These are self-described as "frontispieces" for various books of the Bible. The engravings are executed mostly by John Neagle, but J.W. Walker also contributed and one plate by "Edwards." Most of the plates are of paintings by Shepperson, but also include two by Rubens, one by M. Angilo, one by Coregio, and one by Vandyk. We're not able to locate any copies of a Bible listed for sale (or otherwise) online that is illustrated with this suite of plates. This edition includes Sternhold & Hopkins' The Whole Book of Psalms, Collected into English Meter (London: A. Wilde, 1735.) and The Book of Common Prayer (Baskett, 1736). This edition also includes the Apocrypha. This particular combination is not listed in either Herbert or Darlowe & Moule.A nice example of an 18th Century Bible from the Great Awakening. Jonathan Edwards was in the midst of the beginning of the Awakening (the Northampton, MA revival began in 1733-34). John and Charles Wesley sailed for America in 1735. George Whitefield was converted in 1735 and took the lead of the Wesley's "Holy Club" while they sailed to Georgia.Ownership inscription of H.J. Golding on the title page (not obtrusive). The text, although closely shaved at the top edge, is quite clean and unmarked. The first leaf (A2) of Matthew has been repaired with either two tiny contemporary, or early 19th century, cloth tape adhesives. Corners bumped and rubbed through. Front joint beginning to crack at the bottom. Bottom end of spine has a small chip from the bottom edge. A handsome copy of an unrecorded edition. Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall
