First edition. This excellent bibliography gives much information about miniature Bibles printed from the 17th to the 19th century in America, England, and Europe. The book is the work of a collector who has brought together much information not available elsewhere. Descriptions are extensive and include size, binding, contents, illustrations, other notes, references to other bibliographies where they exist, and locations for known copies. An essential reference book for collectors of children's books (children were the primary audience for these works), miniature books, and publishing history. Near fine condition. A tight and bright copy.
