THE HOLY BIBLE ACCORDING TO THE AUTHORIZED VERSION; WITH NOTES EXPLANATORY AND PRACTICAL ... TOGETHER WITH INTRODUCTIONS, TABLES AND INDEXES
by George B. D';Oyly; Richard Mant | John Henry Hobart (Additional Notes)
New York: T. and J. Swords, 1820. Full Leather. Very Good binding. First published in by the SPCK in 1814 in three volumes, this edition -- the First American Edition -- combined them into two. The work of the two Anglican worthies was augmented in this American edition by John Henry Hobart, the Bishop of New York, sometime rector of Trinity Church in New York City and the founder of the General Theological Seminary. It is said of Bishop Hobart's additions: "He has greatly enhanced the value of this work by numerous additional notes, selected from the writings of the most eminent divines (not noticed by Drs. Mant and D'Oyly)" [cf. Allibone. A Critical Dictionary of English Literature, and British and American Authors, Vol. I; p. 518]. Two quite chunky quarto volumes in diced calf with titling in gold to the spines and all edges marbled. A previous owner gift inscription penned on the verso of the front endpaper of Volume I. One board has been reattached and others reinforced with japanese tissue. An uncommon edition. (O'Callahan, p. 142-3). Very Good binding. (Inventory #: 275865)
