A New History of the Holy Bible

Thomas Stackhouse

London - Printed for the author, 1733 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. Thomas Stackhouse's popular self-published illustrated history of the Bible. First edition. Complete in two volumes. This work was originally to be called 'A Complete History of the Holy Bible'. Stackhouse had in May 1732 been approached by John Wilford and Thomas Edlin, to whom he owed money for books, to write a work for publication in parts, and had suggested this subject. He subsequently contracted with Edlin but soon fell out with him over payment and the rate of production of both copy and printed text. This quarrel led Edlin to engage John Campbell to take over the work, which he hurried out in 1733, though not before Stackhouse had published 'The Book-Binder, Book-Printer, and Book-Seller Confuted' (1732), defending himself and revealing Edlin's shortcomings as a publisher. Having shrewdly learned his lesson, Stackhouse completed his own text, now called 'A New History of the Holy Bible', and published it himself in 1733. Illustrated with maps and plates, each dedicated to a different member of the hierarchy of the Church of England, this book was based on wide reading and written in an accessible style. It proved to be a great success as a reliable work of reference. [DNB]With many beautiful engraved plates and maps, including a plan of the Temple of Solomon, maps of the travels of Jesus and St. Paul, a fold-out illustration of Noah's Ark and a plate depicting the Passover of the Jews. With previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown of one G. E. R. BrummerCondition: Expertly rebound in half calf bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound with shelfwear and rubbing. Slight cracking to one joint. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to first and last few pages but otherwise generally bright and clean with just the odd spot. Some pages have been repaired and one or two have very slight marginal loss. Some plates have been discreetly reinforced to repair curling or small closed tears. Closed tears to the Noah's Ark folding plate. Overall: VERY GOOD.
