1824 Macklin Bible
, Item # 1824GS

4 Volume Macklin

[Bible in English.] The Holy Bible… London: Printed for Thomas Macklin by Thomas Bensley, 1824.

Four very large folio volumes, each approximately 17 x 14 inches.

Volumes 1-3 comprise the Old and New Testament Volume 4 is the Apocypha. (The Apocrypha was issued as a subsequent separate publication for the 1800 first edition in 1816.)

Second Printing of the sumptuous Macklin illustrated edition of Scripture – the largest English Bible ever printed – one of the largest and most beautiful Bibles ever produced in any language, “embellished with engravings from pictures and designs by the most eminent English artists.” (e.g. Fuseli, Reynolds). “A splendid work, printed in very large type by Bensley, and ornamented with fine engravings” (Allibone).

The Seventy Six full-page plates and the other engravings are truly brilliant and sumptuous.

Very light scattered foxing to just a few of the plate margins. Overall, fine.
