The Psalms of David

Cambridge: Rampant Lions Press, 1977. Hardcover. Number 139 of 315 copies. This is one of 280 copies number 1-280 that are quarter bound in vellum with paper sides. There were 20 numbered I-XX bound in full vellum and 15 hors commerce. This edition of the Psalms is reprinted from the Book of Common Prayer. It is the translation most familiar to the English reader, and generally accepted as superior even to that of the King James Bible of seventy years later. It is the work of Miles Coverdale taken from his revision of the Great Bible of 1539 (preface). This beautiful book was designed by Sebastian Carter and printed by him at the Rampant Lions Press on Barcham Green's J. Green mould-made paper. The type used is the original roman designed by Eric Gill for the Golden Cockerel Press, first used in their Four Gospels in 1931. Bound in quarter vellum with handsome patterned paper covers designed by Sebastian Carter. Gilt titling to spine. In fine condition. Large octavo. 151 pages plus colophon. PRIVATEPRESS/102621. Fine.
