The Boston Edition of the Baskett Bible, Nichols, Charles L.
23 Nichols, Charles L. The Boston Edition of the Baskett Bible
Worcester, Mass. The American Antiquarian Society 1927 First Thus Paperback - Stapled Good Octavo Inscribed by Author
21 pp. Wear to stapled paper covers, including bumps and a torn lower corner. Inked notes on front cover. Staples are just a little rusty. Page corners a little curled, page edges browned. One instance of inked marginalia, a few pencilled passages. Reprinted from the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society for April, 1972. Just to be clear, this is not a bible. It is an account by Nichols of his search for the titular bible, which, if it actually existed, would be the earliest bible printed in America. Inscribed by the author on the title page, and accompanied by a two-page ALS, from Nichols to, apparently, a British bookseller, requesting that the bookseller find him a 1752 edition of the Baskett from England to compare with Nichols's 1749 edition. "I am willing to go as high as $25 or $30 for it."
