Description

Engraving with etching from The History of the Old Testament. Extracted from the Sacred Scriptures, the Holy Fathers, and Other Ecclesiastical Writers By Richard Blome. De Royaumont’s classic history of the Bible, translated from the original French by Richard Blome and others, this edition further revised by Dr. Anthony Horneck and other “Orthodox Divines.” Profusely illustrated with extraordinarily beautiful engraved plates depicting Biblical scenes by various artists, and with several folding maps of the Holy Land. History of the Old Testament first published in 1690. This was edited by Richard Blome. Horneck, Church of England clergyman, whose literary output was devoted to working out rules of life for ordinary Christians. See ODNB and for: Blome, cartographer and bookseller. Sieur de Royaumont was the pseudonym for Nicolas Fontaine and this title was originally published as Histoire du Vieux et du Nouveau Testament Large folio, the image is about 8.5" by 13", with large borders. Printed on quality laid paper often with the text page.

Although titled as religious many are simply curious early versions of images to fit the story and as such are some of the cheapest decorative engravings of over 350 years old you will find. Look for the weirdest images, frame in a block and they are stunning ( and cheap). A good tip to check for this edition is the red ink border which vanishes if cleaned and also missing in the later editions. (Modern English is used as my 17thc spelling is rubbish)
