Description:

12mo, pp. 230, [2]. Original sprinkled sheep, spine ruled in gilt, front board stamped ‘Glasgow Bible Society’ in blind. Spotted, some soiling. Binding soiled, extremities rubbed, flyleaves excised, joints cracking at ends but strong.


Notes:

A reading edition of the Scots Gaelic translation of the New Testament, first published 1767 (and revised 1796): it 'contains neither note, comment, nor various readings' (Bibliotheca Scoto-Celtica). This copy is unusual in being as issued without the Old Testament of the same date, which the BS-C states it is 'always to be found bound with', though it makes a still handier volume for reading on the go that way. The binding on this copy is stamped for the Glasgow Bible Society, at the time a separate organisation to the Edinburgh Bible Society that sponsored the printing.
