About This Item

Oxford: Printed at the University Press by Samuel Collingwood and Co., 1836. Small, thick octavo. Contemporary calf. Somewhat edgeworn, but sound, remnants of fore-clasps, front endsheet and title reinserted and a bit ragged; various ownership inscriptions (see below) and use; a sound copy. Editions of no particular consequence, but in a contemporary binding with a large blind stamped panel on the upper board with the text: "The Gift of Philip Late Lord Wharton Distributed by His Lordships Trustees 1838." Affixed to the front pastedown is a printed slip outlining the terms and conditions of the gift, reading in part: "Lord Wharton having directed that the Name and Age of the Children, to whom the Bibles are given, shall be wrote in the book; the Trustees require it be so done; and the Child shall be taught to read, and be able to say by Heart the Catechism ...[etc]." A manuscript note indicates "The Gift of Lord Wharton ... Feby. 3d. 1839." Above it appears the inscription: "Emma Cave Aged 12 Feby. 3d 1839." Opposite, on the free endsheet appears the ownership signature of "Elizabeth Ann Cave Aged 11." Sadly, on the rear pastedown is the early note: "Emma Cave Born May 23rd 1830 and died April 7th 1842 Aged 13 [sic]." The gift Trust was established by Lord Wharton in his will at his death in 1696, and the Trust continues to some extent in the endeavor. One presumes many thousands from this era remain extant, but the binding is of passing interest. GRIFFITHS 1836.11.
