Clement Cotton
The First Ever Published King James Bible Concordances. EXTREMELY RARE!

Small holes in text, of which there's no sign of significant loss in text and, though small not often. Text slightly fades at times. Marginal tears with minor loss in text. (1627) A-A4 (missing blank). Titl … [Click Below for Full Description]
