SALE: $24.95, plus shipping. This sale will only last to the end of this month
This is my modern bound version of my hand bound replica of our original 1733 New Testament. We scanned our original and then cleaned up the text of each page. I took these text files to Bindtech in Nashville and has these reproductions made. The tooling on the cover is a duplicate of one of my other original 18th Century books. We paid extra to have a machine “Smyth Sew” this Bible. Smythe sewing is similar to how I stitch mine by hand. Polly and I picked the cover to match as close to leather as we could. It is not leather.
Modern reproductions have been made of rare English Bibles. Among the most well- known are the 1560 Geneva Bible, the 1599 Geneva Bible, and the 1611 King James Bible. However, our particular hand-bound edition of the King James Version that was printed in 1733 is not a first-edition, nor a last edition, nor an unusually rare edition. And yet that is exactly why we attempted to make this replica. It represents the common Bible of the common family in the American colonies. It reminds us of a generation who were born during the First Great Awakening, who came into adulthood during the French and Indian War, and who became the brave leaders of the American Revolution and as well as the founders of a new American nation.
We only have a limited number of these and will not have them made again. Let me know, if you want one of these 1733 New Testaments at this sale price. ~ James
