Geneva: Fabri & Barillot, 1712. La Sainte Bible, qui contient le Vieux et le Nouveau Testament, C`est à dire, l`ancienne et la nouvelle Alliance. Le tout revû & conferé sur les Textes Hébreux & Grecs, Par les Pasteurs & les Professeurs de l`Eglise de Geneve. Geneva: Fabri & Barillot, 1712. -----0o0----- A rare early 18th-century copy of the Holy Bible in the Geneva translation of Calvin (whom has signed the preface here as well) and Beza in Marot's French translation; beautifully bound in a fantastic period leather binding with working metal clasps, the spine with decorative gilt compartments, gilt title label and thick raised bands. After the Bible is the 150 Psalms of David, as well as the Commandments of God and the song of Simeon; set to music in one voice (in the first verse). The psalter is followed by the usual liturgical texts and prayers, namely "The form of ecclesiastical prayers", "Catechism" and the confession of faith in 40 articles of the Reformed Churches of France ("Confession of faith, made by mutual agreement , by the Francis who wish to live according to the purity of the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ "). All of these pieces as well as the New Testament do not carry title pages, as issued. Pages have some lighter wear points (some lighter staining, browning towards the gutter of the first few pages, old inscription to title page, etc ) but overall retain very well. It is complete; the title page with restorations, as shown. Binding in fantastic shape, as shown in pics. Measures 14" x 9.5" x 3". Very rare and valuable find! Good luck!
