Description

In surprisingly nice condition for its age, here is a miniature book with marbled covers and a gold title on the spine.

Entitled “Biblical Antiquities,” this contains an owner’s name in ink, dated 1845 in that lovely spidery calligraphry everyone used to master. The publishing information gives the date of 1829, so the 1845 inscription could be from a second or third owner.

There is also a more prosaic stamp from the Swarthmore College Library Book Sale.

Contains 288 clean, strongly bound pages.

Many full page illustrations in black and white of such Biblical items as:

Locust
Modern Jewish Marriage Ceremony
Bowing Down
Ancient Plough
Ancient Table
Goat
Camel/Dromedary
Wheat Ears
Sycamore Tree, Fig Leaf and Fruit
Ancient Books

And more.

This rare tiny tome is in very nice condition, considering its age. There are some areas of paper loss on the front cover and spine. Owner’s name in ink, plus a stamp from a college library on the first blank page. Typical and occasional foxing throughout.

If you are unhappy with an item, please return it for a full refund on the purchase price only. The cost of shipping back to this shop is the buyer's responsibility. Partial refunds will not be given on items you wish to keep.

Additional policies

During sales or special offers, you MUST enter the coupon code at time of purchase. Sorry, discounts are not given retroactively.

We are happy to place an item on RESERVE, if a buyer wishes to save it and purchase at a later specified date (no more than ONE WEEK in the future). When a reserve is placed, buyer promises not to UN-RESERVE it.

Please understand that we cannot prevent another buyer from disregarding the RESERVE and clicking "purchase" anyway. To prevent this disappointing outcome, we recommend you buy the item and click "pay by check." Then communicate when you will have sufficient funds to pay (either by paypal, credit card or check), and the item will be saved specifically for you for a period of not more than one week.
