The Holy Bible: A Translation from the Latin Vulgate in the Light of the Hebrew and Greek Originals., Knox, Mgr. Ronald. (translator).
5 Knox, Mgr. Ronald. (translator). The Holy Bible: A Translation from the Latin Vulgate in the Light of the Hebrew and Greek Originals.
Montreal, Quebec / London, UK. Palm Publishers / Burns & Oates. 1961 Hard Cover Very Good with no dust jacket 
12mo - 18 x 12 cm.; vii - (3) - 913 - (3) - 287 - (1) pp. Black leather over thin and flexible boards with gilt lettering on the spine and with a gilt "Alpha" on the front cover and a gilt "Omega" on the back. Gold filligree stampings (dentelle) on the leather "turn-ins" that surround the paste down end papers. A single blind stamped border rule graces the front and back covers. The previous owner's name is also stamped in gilt on the lower fore corner of the front cover. All text block edges are gilt over red stain (burnished) with rounded text block corners. One black book marker ribbon set into the headband. Marbled end papers both front and back. This is the one volume edition of both Old and New Testament with Apocrypha, first published in 1955 with the translation published in separate volumes in 1945 (New Testament) and 1949 (Old Testament) before they were consolidated into the single volume. Previous owner's name written on the head margin of the first (half-title) page and both end paper hinges are torn in the gutters though with the nature of the binding, this has not weakened the case work in any way. I was aware that special bindings could be had from the publisher for what would be "presentation copies" and this appears to be one of those. The priest to whom this bible belonged was a beloved pastor and at one time, the president of the Catholic Missions in Canada. It is rather nice to see such reverence and care being given to the Word of God. 29201
