The Holy Bible, Revised Standard Version, Containing the Old and New Testaments.
Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1953.
This is a beautiful binding of the RSV Bible.
Full black leather, five raised bands with blindstamped decorations, gilt lettering to spine, gilt floral dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled paper endpapers, silk page marker. This Bible feels great in your hand, and is wonderful to behold. Clearly, the binder was inspired by the book’s contents to make a binding worthy of the Word of God.
There is one faint blemish to the title page (see picture) which goes through to copyright page and slightly to first page, but otherwise this book is in fine condition. The leather is supple.
The type is generous. Although this is not what I would consider “Large Print”, the print is a comfortable size for reading. Both Testaments are here, words of Christ are in black.
This would make a wonderful gift to anyone who enjoys this version of the Bible.
Measures 8-1/2″ high by 5-3/4″ wide and 1-1/2″ thick. 293 pages.
