The Holy Bible. Containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated out of the Original Tongues and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised by His Majesty's special Command
The University Press, Oxford 1935 - Two folio volumes. xix, 1216 pp., continuous pagination. One of 200 copies printed on Batchelor's handmade paper in modified Centaur type. This copy includes the limitation leaf, which is often missing. "Every book designed by Rogers was an individual accomplishment .The monument to his life work is the superb large folio Bible he designed and supervised at the University Press, Oxford. It will long remain as the finest of all presentations of the King James Version." (The Typographic Book, p.56). Elsewhere, Blumenthal called the Oxford Bible "the most important printed book of the twentieth century" (Art of the Printed Book, p. 50-1). Four-page prospectus in the seldom-seen Oxford Press wrapper is laid in. The copy has been handsomely bound in full red morocco by the Bookends Bindery. The design features circular lettering on the upper covers of each volume, bearing scriptural verse relevant to each book. In the case of the Old Testament, it is the opening line of Genesis; in the New Testament, it is the last line of Revelations. Each volume is housed in cloth clamshell cases. A magnificent binding on a landmark typographic book. Very fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
