(Miniature Book). The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments.

NY: Oxford University Press, (1919). 876pp. Printed on India paper and illustrated with black & white plates. Between the Old and New Testaments are the Shakespeare Family records, by W. S. Brassington, a rare feature of this tiny bible. Bound in full leather with the title in gilt on the spine, and with a pocket inside the front cover containing a magnifying glass. Attached to the rear cover is a metal chain that holds the book to a miniature wooden lectern, in accordance with the practice in 16th-century English churches. There is a shelf for storage of the Bible under the lectern. On the bottom of the base is a paper label explaining how the Bible came to be chained. Extremities are slightly rubbed, else both Bible and stand are in very fine condition. The stand measures six inches high. (1 7/8 by 1 3/8; 47x33mm). Item #25006
