Boston: T. Bedlington, 1819. 254 pp. Approximately 1-3/4 x 1-1/4". 16 woodcuts. Contemporary leather, ruled and lettered in gilt on spine, marbled edges. Spine quite rubbed with slight loss to ends; edges faded; front endpaper nearly detached; bookplate. Occasional minor soiling and foxing, else internally clean and sound. In about very good condition, overall. (Welsh 1083)

An uncommon early American thumb bible, likely a reprint of the edition published by Ball and Bedlington in 1814. From the Preface: "It is a sorrowful reflection, in a country where all may have the Bible in their hands, that there should be so many who seldom read this best of books ... It is hoped, the persual of this little treatise will so attract the young mind, as to excite a curiosity and love for the scriptures at large."

T. Bedlington
