[Walter Crane, Illustrated Folio]  Holy Bible
Item Details
Description
[King James Version] THE HOLY BIBLE… ILLUSTRATED BY MODERN ARTISTS. London, New York, Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam: Illustrated Bible Society, [ca. 1900.] Large folio ( 21.25" x 15.75".) Here in the original 20 parts, never bound. Accompanying the text are all 100 STUNNING PLATES BY WALTER CRANE AND OTHER ARTISTS (all present as per list.) Text of Bible is complete, two title pages present (OT and NT), index/plate list present, and family register leaves present (not marked.) Each part in wrappers (detached) with illustrated front and rear covers (repeated.) We note one extra rear cover (depicting the crucifixion) though it is heavily chipped. ************ This impressive publication was an enormous undertaking involving numerous artists of the day. Quite scarce and rarely seen in commerce.
Condition
Plates are clean and in nice condition overall though some of the captioned tissue guards have tears. Text mostly clean but with various tearing and chipping, including first 6 leaves (Genesis) with several long closed tears, most text leaves with some marginal chipping and/or smaller tears, most leaves are loose as these were issued in wrappers and most of the thin spine portions are here perished. Most of these flaws (above) are the result of these parts never having been bound, thus the page edges show the wear described above.
