    Bible Associated with Queen Victoria's Coronation in a Stunning Deluxe Full Vellum Binding

    [Bible in English]. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated out of the Original Tongues; and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, by His Majesty's Special Command. Appointed to be Read in Churches, Cum Privilegio. Cambridge: Printed at the Pitt Press, John William Parker, University Printer, 1837.

    King James Version. Thick folio.

    Contemporary full vellum, elaborately panelled and decorated in gilt on both covers and spine, bronze edges on boards and with decorative bronze clasps and feet, gilt turn-ins, silk moiré endliners, all edges gilt and sumptuously gauffered edges. With the Armorial bookplate of B. F. Dawson (possibly an English clergyman who relocated to New York). Four vellum leaves of "Family Register" between the Old and New Testaments, with only the first page having entries of four marriages taking place at the Church of the Ascension in New York City between 1868 and 1884. A few pages excised before the vellum family register, probably remnants of the paper register that was removed. Joints expertly repaired and re-hinged with pigskin. Dust soiling, especially to the top board. Text pages are clean and bright. A superb example. Housed in a brown buckram clamshell case, stamped in gilt on the front cover and with a spine morocco lettering label stamped in gilt.

    Herbert associates this edition with the Accession of Queen Victoria on June 20, 1837.
