Description: [Bible]. New York: Pageant Books, 1961. 2 vol. Folio (18" x 12".) Bound in red morocco with labels in gilt, boards paneled in gilt, gilt dentelles, and all edges gilt. The binding is not the publisher's, and it is believed that the former owner purchased the text-blocks and had them bound. Spine labels with Biblia Sacra misspelled ("Sacka".) Condition of binding and contents are both excellent. **************************** The first facsimile edition of the Gutenberg Bible to be printed in the United States and only the second such edition in the world. One of 1,000 copies (this copy not numbered.) This edition is based upon the Insel-Verlag edition. The text pages were produced by lithography and the illuminated pages by sheet-fed gravure. Included with this lot is a facsimile leaf of the first page of Genesis taken from the Library of Congress copy of the Gutenberg Bible (housed in original orange printed paper folder.)
