Title: The Bible, That Is, The Holy Scriptures Contained In The Olde And New Testament, Translated According To The Hebrew and Greeke, And Conferred With The Best Translations In Divers Languages
Publisher: Deputies of Christopher Barker
Printing Year: 1599

Condition/Details: Bound in leather-covered boards with raised spine bands, this antique volume is a scarce copy of what is known as the Geneva Bible or Breeches Bible.

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into the English language, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of the 16th century Protestant movement and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Milton, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress. It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower, it was used by many English Dissenters, and it was still respected by Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the time of the English Civil War.

What makes this version of the Holy Bible significant is that, for the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public which came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids (collectively called an apparatus), which included verse citations which allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible which acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indexes, as well as other included features — all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study bible.

Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers preferred this version strongly over the Bishops' Bible, the translation authorized by the Church of England under Elizabeth I. In the words of Cleland Boyd McAfee, "it drove the Great Bible off the field by sheer power of excellence". (history courtesy of Wikipedia)

This volume shows external age/wear, with the leather separating from the boards and spine cover. The front and rear boards are attached to the spine by only the binding thread, which also served as the raised spine bands. The text block is lacking its front free endpaper and the final pages, and the rear endpaper is detached. The remaining pages are well bound, with age toning, occasional moisture markings and minor marginalia. There is also some handwriting inside of the front board. The book measures approximately 6 1/2" x 8 1/2".

In 1864, he defeated Confederate forces in the Shenandoah Valley and his destruction of the economic infrastructure of the Valley, called "The Burning" by residents, was one of the first uses of scorched earth tactics in the war.

Number of Volumes: Complete 2 volume set

Notes: Bound in green cloth with gilt lettering to spine, this antique set is a scarce ornithological work by Elon Howard Eaton (1866 - 1934),an American ornithologist, scholar, and author.

Each May he led a group of students and fellow ornithologists on a bird survey of Potter Swamp.

Part of the delay between volume one and volume two of "Birds of New York" was due to his marriage in 1909 to Gertrude Yeames and a heart attack in 1913. The publication of this work elicited many letters to Eaton, including one from the then-young Roger Tory Peterson.

The following set of volumes were produced by the Roycrofters, a renowned reformist community of craft workers and artists which formed part of the Arts and Crafts movement in the USA. Elbert Hubbard founded the community in 1895 in the village of East Aurora, Erie County, New York, near Buffalo. The work and philosophy of the group, often referred to as the Roycroft movement, had a strong influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century. Elbert Green Hubbard (June 19, 1856 – May 7, 1915) was an eccentric American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher. He was an influential exponent of the Arts and Crafts movement who produced not only fine books but furniture in this aesthetic, and was a prolific writer himself; he is perhaps most famous for his essay "A Message to Garcia."

Publisher: The Roycrofters
Printing Year: 1914-1918

MacNaughton, who was married to the daughter (Ruth Beebe MacNaughton) of Charles Thomas Beebe. Mr. Beebe worked for the Roycroft Shop in East Aurora, NY from approximately 1905 to circa 1928. Among other possible duties at the famous Shops, Mr. Beebe designed some of the unique trademark stampings for book bindings and probably worked as a bookbinder and finisher as well.

Many of the items in the collection are one of a kind designs, from doodles to drafts to blind stamped proofs. There are also a number of stamped book covers and rubbings of book covers as examples of what is presumed to be Mr. Beebe’s work. Many items are signed and/or dated, giving a comprehensive overview of his prominent career as a Roycrofter. Information derived from the collection suggests that Charles T. Beebe lived on Grove Street in East Aurora, throughout his employment for Elbert Hubbard, author and founder of the Roycroft Shops.

He included words from science, technology, and the arts; much British usage omitted by Webster; an unusual number of provincial and Scottish words; and added quotations and encyclopedic information for many words. With over 2,000 woodcut illustrations, it was the first significantly illustrated dictionary, setting the trend which continues today.
This set is a revised and expanded edition edited by Charles Annandale and published in 1882 in four volumes, over 3,000 pages, with about 130,000 entries, revised definitions and etymologies, and 3,000 illustrations. Although the vocabulary coverage was small by today's standards, it was the largest English dictionary at the time. This edition went through numerous printings in various forms well into the twentieth century. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)
