THE LIFE AND MORALS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH (1904 First Edition THOMAS JEFFERSON BIBLE Signed by Congressman)

by THOMAS JEFFERSON

Condition: Near Fine/No Jacket


WASHINGTON: Government Printing Office, 1904 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Signed by A Congressman. First Lithographic Edition.. Signed & dated 1904 to D. W. Bergstrom compliments of J. H. Davidson (a congressman of the U. S. House of Representatives) on the front free endpaper. D. W. Bergstrom was a renowned paper industrialist of the late 19th century. He was partnered with his brother George O. Bergstrom. His brother's son George Edward Bergstrom was famous for his contribution in designing the Pentagon. This Jefferson Bible was purchased from a very old gentleman estate in Oregon. The front & rear covers were cleanly detached & missing when it was found even though the binding was perfectly solid & sound (like new). And I had it professionally rebound with the original gilt spine cloth title, and new French marble endpapers. A hardcover that measures about 9 x 5-1/2. 1904 was the 1st year of this publication by an act of the United States Congress. Rare, in very nice condition! Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall.
