Publisher: Historical Publishing Company, Dayton, Ohio (Holman edition)
 VERY GOOD and COMPLETE condition

Price: $425.00

A remarkably well preserved Salesman Parallel - Column Edition Bible Sampler as used by salesmen for the Historical Publishing Company of Dayton, Ohio dating from likely the mid 188ies for its Parallel Bibles. Parallel Bibles presented both the King James Version as well as the Revised Version in parallel columns next to each other.
Like with most Bibles of these years, the mentioned published was a representative for the A.J. Holman company who actually printed these Bibles.
This Salesman Bible Sampler offers examples of 4 different styles for the 'New Pronouncing Parallel Bibles -  the latest issued and the very best' ranged in pricing from $5.00 for the "American Morocco" version (Style A) through $12.50 for the "Genuine Turkey Morocco" version (Style D). They also offered a German language Bible and the Sampler contains various examples of the German version as well.
This Salesman Bible is in an overall VERY GOOD and COMPLETE condition. The (original) binding is still holding, however open and use carefully as some of the pages are starting to come lose. This Sampler is very complete, even almost all of the salesman instruction slips/notes are still present and attached. Also the original - blank- subscriptions forms are present as well! There is NO writing. Still retains most of the gold embossing on the edges of the covers. There is some wear to the edges of the covers and areas on the leather.   This Salesman Bible Sampler is about as good as is possibly preserved from this era.
