The Holy Bible.

London: Nonesuch Press, 1924-27.

Gooden, Stephen. One of 1000 copies. Each volume with an engraved title page, head piece, and tail piece by Stephen Gooden. 5 vols. Folio. Original gilt stamped parchment paper boards, uncut, one joint split, spines darkened, usual problems Dreyfus. Item #52379

One of the great early books of the Press, and Stephen Gooden's second book commission, after the Nonesuch Anacreon of 1923. The fragile board covers (which the Press proprietor, Sir Francis Meynell, later admitted to be a mistake) are seldom found in anything approaching good or fine condition.
