1841 The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments
What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Original Binding
An 1841 edition of the Holy Bible, bound in two full calf volumes and containing both the Old and New Testaments. With the 'Psalms of David in Metre' to the rear of each volume. The title page explains that this work is 'appointed to be read in Churches'.
Both volumes bear the bookplate of Humphrey Ewing Crum-Ewing, a Scottish Liberal politician who sat in the house of commons from 1857 to 1874, to the front pastedown of both volumes. His inscription also appears to the verso of a front endpaper on each volume. Crum-Ewing, of Scottish Clan Ewing, was the owner of properties in the West Indies, chairman of the West Indian Association of Glasgow and a director of the Colonial Company of London.
The bookseller's label of 'M. Ogle & Son, Glasgow' appears to the front pastedown of both volumes.
