Folio 13" - 23" tall; Folio, 33cm. 2 p. L. [1]-527[1] [1]-66 p. , 1l. , 1-169[1]p. A handsome and well preserved copy of this rarity of early American Bible printing. Goeb’s Bible was printed in 1813 in “frontier” America, on a press carried in pieces by mule over the Allegheny Mountains. It is bound in original full calf over wooden boards; spine in six panels with five raised bands. Remnants only of original clasps and straps present. All endpages are present and intact. Text in two columns. Includes Old and New Testaments with separate title pages. Apocraphya is between Testaments and is separately paged. Not often found in such well preserved condition, this copy has had only minimal restoration to the front hinge. A professional and sympathetic mend was effected using archival material. The intact cords were strengthened. Original leather rubbed at edges and corners, with light surface scarring - but much less so than in copies usually seen. Front several pages have a vertical crease near the gutter. Scattered foxing and toning. First several leaves with furred edges and several minor margin tears. A last leaf of recommended readings, Anweisung der ... Episteln und Evangelien, is not present – though there is no evidence of any missing page. Perhaps this copy in a state bound without this final leaf. An impressive feat of printing accomplished at the edge of settled early North America - in a handsome example. An important American Bible. Uncommon in any condition but scarce in such a well preserved example. A VG copy. Shaw & Shoemaker, 27883. ... Oversize book will require additional charges for expedited or international shipping.
