A suite of finely engraved plates illustrating key scenes in the bible with English language captions. The set was sold separately, to be interleaved with print editions of the King James bible, as here, and is typically found with a few plates missing. The printed bible is comprised of the Old and New Testament, without Apocrypha; the imprint on the letterpress title for the New Testament reads Oxford: printed at the Theater, and to be sold by Moses Pitt ... Peter Parker ... Thomas Guy, 1683. The set of engravings is uncommon in the market.
