Pleasing publisher's medium brown imitation leather, front cover gilt with tooling in triple frame formed by rolls of fleurons and closely spaced volutes, shallow raised bands, spine similarly decorated, all edges gilt. With 48 black and white drawings and 51 color reproductions of paintings by Rembrandt, plus five plans of temples, eight maps in color, and several pages with manuscript-style decorated borders and text. In virtually mint condition.
This large, thick illustrated Bible is both attractive and accessible. The preface notes that this edition aims "to say as exactly as possible what the writers of the Scriptures meant, and to say it simply, expanding where necessary for a clear understanding by the modern reader." Consequently, this "paraphrased" edition is an ideal collectible, or family Bible. Stately in appearance, it contains very pleasing manuscript-style pages for recording family history, and is profusely illustrated with dramatic scenes from Rembrandt's Biblical paintings and drawings.
