About This Item

1795 ENORMOUS McDowall Family Bible Kennicott IRISH Dublin Ireland Illustrated

The 'Kennicott Bible' has long been known as one of the most lavishly illustrated Bibles of the 18th-century. Benjamin Kennicott was a well-known English Hebraist who studied the Hebrew Bible and made his life's work studying and comparing variants of Hebrew manuscripts. And while mass-produced editions of Kennicott's Bible were not produced with the same vibrancy and page-to-page illustrations as the original, Family Bibles with Kennicott's translations are still popular and widely read.

This 1795 Dublin printing was published by Zachariah Jackson who included 50 impressive, full-page engravings in this 'authorized' edition.
