More Vintage Bible Auctions

A couple of impressive offerings came to my attention this morning, so I figured I'd pass them along. One is a vintage Cambridge KJV Turquoise Bible in saddle brown antique French Morocco. The Turquoise was a larger format, just over 6x9. I picked up a red cowhide one in Dublin back in the 90s, and it's quite pleasant to read. The cover on the one at auction (which dates from the 70s) looks beautiful, and it comes in the gold box.

The same seller is offering a Harper Brevier Text Bible bound in brown alligator grained calfskin. From the photos, it looks like an amazing and unique offering reminiscent of the extravagant editions I posted about last month. Check it out:

By the way, if you're thinking of taking the vintage plunge, it's worth checking out Ben Ting's piece about a vintage Cambridge he picked up recently. It's a beauty. In fact, he has a number of Bible-related posts complete with lovely photos, well worth viewing.
