A quite UNIQUE and RARE English, non-KJV Bible: 'A New and Literal Translation of All the Books of the Old and New Testament with Notes, Critical and Explanatory by Anthony Pulver in TWO Volumes [here both volumes are bound in 1 book}, London ... M DCC LXIV"
As per Herbert's Catalog (#1154): This is an Original Version, by a member of the Society of Friends, who is said to have spent 30 years in its preparation. It contains the complete Bible with additional remarks, indices and extensive commentary/notes.
Its intention was to become an alternative for the King James Bible that dominated as often the only available translation in the 18th century. It obviously did not succeed and it did not gain much support.
In VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT condition - professionally rebound with new covers and leather spine. Can be read daily without any binding concerns, No writing, some light occasional foxing but all in all the paper is very clean and crisp. A VERY nice and rare Bible indeed!
