The Labourer’s in the Vineyard,  Mat: 20.

This is a photo of one of the pages from our original 1715 Bible.  You can see page 100, “The Labourer’s in the Vineyard,  Mat: 20.”  I scanned my replica of the 1715 “History of ye Old & New Testament” from these page.  This was a rare Bible even when it was originally made.

Proverbs

These are 1744 Proverbs of Solomon books that I have bound by hand. They are covered in hand-made marbled paper. They are 45 pages in length and measure about 3/8 of an inch thick and are 4 inches wide by 6 inches tall. This is not a replica of an original, but one that we created to look period. They cost $14.95 Shipping is FREE! They are not on my web site. Just here. Let me know if you want one of these.  I do not have PayPal. You will have to mail me a check. Sorry. Please let me know what color you would like. Mail to: James Moore, 1518 Crossbreeze Court, Bowling Green, KY 42104-4730 Also, what is your mailing address?

1643 Souldiers’s Pocket Bible

Polly had the opportunity to visit the Morgan Library and Museum in New York.  She got some interesting photos inside.

See the plain covered blue book labeled “The Souldiers’s Pocket Bible”.  That looks like the spelling of the 1643 one that I replicate.  This would have been the one used by Cromwell’s Soldiers.  I would really like to peek inside of this book.   The one that I replicate is a little 16 page Bible that is bound like a pamphlet.  I wonder if this book has several copies of the 1643 Bible bound inside.

My replicas are $9.95 each.  Please let me know, if you want one.

Gospel of John covered in marbled paper

I covered a few Gospel of John books in marbled paper, made by Renee Kuhnel Gillespie, earlier this month. This is the only one that I have left. If you want this last one, let me know. It cost 19.95 and shipping is free.  It is not for sale on my web site; just here. I do not have PayPal. Sorry, you will have to mail me a check. Mail to: James Moore, 1518 Crossbreeze Court, Bowling Green, KY 42104-4730 Please include your mailing address?

Book of Common Prayer books

Polly had the opportunity to visit the Morgan Library and Museum in New York.  She got some interesting photos inside.  This is a photo of a shelf full of early American Book of Common Prayer books.  I make a replica of our original 1734 Book of Common Prayer.  I only have one in stock right now.  If you would like it, please let me know.

Nativity Pamphlet

This is my newest pamphlet dated 1745. I finished it last night.

“The Nativity of Our Lord” is a 24 page pamphlet measuring 3 ¾” X 6 ¼”. Price: $9.95 FREE SHIPPING
