How to browse through our Bibles:
All Bibles are listed in order of publishing date. For each Bible there is a seperate detailed webpage with many, many more pictures that you can reach by clicking on the title of the Bible or at the 'more details' link at the end of the description.
A note on the quality of our Antique Bibles:
We take great pride in the quality of the Bibles we offer. We cannot replace missing pages or undo water damage and so on, but we do make sure that the binding of the pages as well as the covers is in good (daily) useable condition. Therefore most Bibles go through a restoration process where the spines are cleaned of old failing adhesive and loose pages or broken signatures are restored/replaced. Old spine leather is reinforced or replaced and spine reinforcement is applied with new headbands and the cover hinge is extra re-enforced. Also the cover leather is cleaned and treated and if applicable the clasps are cleaned and restored. This is not just a patch job! This process brings the strength of the book back to its original quality.

In remarkable PRISTINE condition: American Bible History: A BEAUTIFULLY preserved 1846 Harper Illuminated Bible. Beautiful decorated and embossed decorated front and back cover and 5-band raised spine with the text "Holy Bible" and showing various beautiful decorations and illustrations. Beautiful gold decorated red leather cover showing the conquest of  Jericho - VERY NICE! Dated 1846 with, at foot of title, "entered ... in the year 1843 by Harper and Brothers". Frontispiece and illuminated title to each Testament. Table, Index and Concordance at the end. With Apocrypha.
The work was originally announced in 1843, and was issued in 54 numbers of 25ct each. J.A. Adams, the engraver, is credited with having taken the first electrotype in America from a woodcut. Many illustrations in this Bible are done this way. Artists were engaged for more than six years (!) in the preparation of the designs and engravings included in this Bible, at a cost of over $20,000 (a small fortune in those days!).
"This Harper publication was a remarkable production in its time and place, and retains its importance in the annals of American bookmaking. W.J. Linton, noted wood-engraver and author, knew 'no other book like this, so good, so perfect in all its undertakes.' The illustrations are like picturings of history, as are so many of the old European Biblical paintings and illustrations." [Hill's catalogue #1161] "Embellished with sixteen hundred historical engravings"
There are a set of blank family pages for recording births and deaths in middle of the Bible.

Cassell's  famous printing of an extensive series of 220 full page illustrations by the famous Gustave Dore. Including the Old Testament (with a total of 120 engravings), the Apocrypha (21 engravings) and the New Testament (with 79 engravings).
In the 1870s, The Doré Bible was likely the most treasured (and expensive) book in the world. The English edition from Cassell, Petter and Galpin, caused a demand among collectors for any and everything by Doré. Because of the demand, a number of editions in English were between 1867 and 1903 in a variety of formats, none of which were dated on the title page. This Bible is among one of the earlier editions, containing 220 engravings (later editions had only 205). With separate title pages for Apocrypha and New Testament. Four pages preceding the New Testament with wood-engraved borders providing space for Family Register, Births, Marriages, and Deaths- all never used. Bound in full tooled dark leather and "Holy Bible" in gold letters on the spine. All edges are gilt. All Dore plates present as called for in contents. Complete in every respect.
Also includes the original - never written on - family 'death, birth and marriage' pages.
A beautifully preserved edition of the famous Dore Bible!. ... more information ...
