Description

King James Bible – The Vinegar Bible

The Holy Bible. Oxford: Printed by John Baskett, 1717

Huge folio. 19.5 x 12.75 x 4.5 inches. One of the most magnificent English Bibles ever printed, though marred by quite a few errors – the one in the headline of Luke 20 giving this edition its nickname — “The Parable of the Vinegar” (for Vineyard).

Rare and highly desirable.

Herbert #943 with variant B (no priority) of additional general title dated 1716.
