This is Robert Aitken’s logo. It draws attention to his Atlantic connection by showing a ship on the ocean. Aitken got many of the books that he sold in his shop from overseas.
Robert Aitken, of Philadelphia, was a printer, binder, publisher, and bookseller. He made the 1st Bible in English in America. That 1782 Bible went on to be called the “Bible of the Revolution”. Aitken had been printing a New Testament in English (the first in 1777) each year leading up to his complete Bible that was finally published in 1782. Aitken ended up printing around 10,000 of these Bibles. I hope to have my replica of Robert Aitken’s 1782 “Bible of the Revolution” ready in the next couple of months. This Bible will measure about 4 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches tall by 4 inches thick. I think that my price will be $625 plus shipping, but I may raise that price after I make the first ones. It is time to pre-order, if you want one. Take a look at our work on this Bible on my web page at the following link: Click here to see “The Bible of the Revolution”
