The Holy Bible
London: Nonesuch Press, 1924. One of an edition of 1000 copies on Japon vellum paper. Each volume with an engraved title page, head piece, and tail piece by Stephen Gooden. 5 vols. Folio. Original gilt stamped parchment paper boards, uncut. Very slight toning to spine, one or two corners bumped but a superior copy of this fragile book. Very good plus. One of the great early books of the Nonesuch Press, and Stephen Gooden's second book commission, after the Nonesuch Anacreon of 1923. The fragile binding of the trade issue (later acknowledged by Meynell to have been a mistake) is rarely seen in suitable condition. An attractive set of a landmark work.
