Novum testamentum. Juxta exemplar Millianum. Typis Joannis Baskerville.
Oxoni: E typographeo Clarendoniano 8vo in 4s (23.5 cm, 9.25"). [4], 676 pp.. 1763 Sole octavo printing of the Greek New Testament using Baskerville type (i.e., Greek type that Baskerville designed and cut himself); and indeed this pleasingly was printed from the only set of Baskerville type that survives to this day, still at Oxford's Clarendon Press. The text was based on the Mill edition of the Greek N.T.; Darlow and Moule notes that while the text "generally reproduces that of Mill . . . Reuss notes seven variations." => An important example of 18th-century fine printing of the Bible. This copy retains its half-title. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Contemporary acid-stained calf, rebacked some time ago with morocco, spine with gilt-stamped title and publication information; edges and extremities rubbed, sides and spine with small scuffs. New endpapers with pencilled annotations; back pastedown with California bookseller's small ticket. No library markings. Title-page with tiny nick in upper edge. Pages very slightly age-toned with a very few scattered small spots, otherwise crisp and clean.
