Here is a special Cambridge Field’s Bible from 1666 bound in a beautiful contemporary English binding with floral and leaf decorations and intact silver clasps.
The Bible contains contemporary ownership inscriptions, including a lovely book plate from John and Mary Tiler on their marriage day - 18th September 1696 - and a full page inscription of female ownership: “Mary Tiler Her Bible 1700”. Alongside this, there are several pages of inscriptions giving a comprehensive ownership journey of the Bible from its purchase until the late 19th Century.
As well as containing the Holy Bible, this copy contains the Apocrypha, the New Testament, The Book of Common Prayer, The Index Biblicus and The Whole Book of Psalms.
The book is complete and in very good condition with contemporary marbled end papers and all silver clasps and corners intact. It has been professionally rebacked at some stage and there is some minor wear to the binding.
