John Brown's (1722-87) Self-interpreting Bible was originally published in 1778. Originally of Scottish farming stock, Brown was orphaned at twelve and became a shepherd. Having little formal schooling he taught himself Latin, Greek and Hebrew and later became a preacher in the Burgher branch of the Secession church. He wrote a number of books, many of them aimed at young people.
This volume contains forty engraved plates.
This volume has been rebound in black cloth with the original spine. The binding is therefore tight and firm with all the internal pages firmly attached. There is some wear to the extremities including marks to the boards. The internal pages are generally clean with some brown spotting, including to the plates and the occasional handling mark. There is one page towards the back (St paul's Epistles) which is missing a section of text, although the page has been mended. The title page has handling marks and perhaps has spent some time without boards. Overall this volume is in good condition.
