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
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!
