RARE Oxford Cambridge NEB New English Bible Apocrypha Single Column Goat Skin Art Gilt NEB 65 D Vintage, Condition is Very Good. Black Goatskin, Ribbon Marker, Sewn, Art Gilt Edges. Please See Description and Pictures. The New English Bible (NEB) is a beautiful and unique new translation of Scripture using the scholarship of the late 20th century poetically rendered in the modern British English of its day.
It is my personal favorite translation. Leather editions are long out-of-print and becoming increasingly rare. The New English Bible, completed in 1970, was the culmination of more than twenty years' work by scholars and literary advisers representing the major Protestant churches of the British Isles.
An authoritative translation made directly from the best Hebrew and Greek texts and founded on all the resources of contemporary scholarship, it aimed to present the full meaning of the original in clear and natural modern English. This approach marked a departure from the prevailing Bible translation philosophy and to this day the NEB has a significant place in the history of the Bible in English.
To the sponsors and translators of the New English Bible the English speaking world owes an immense debt. They have given us a version which is contemporary in idiom, up-to-date in scholarship, attractive, and at times exciting in content... Please read the following carefully. This vintage Oxford Cambridge edition of the NEB includes the Apocrypha and is in really wonderful condition. The cover is done in a lovely black goatskin.This is the original goatskin cover -- NOT a rebind. It is not leather lined so not as limp and floppy as in modern premium goatskin Bibles. But it is still very flexible. The product number is NEB 65 D. The sewn binding is still tight. The art gilt is in almost pristine shape with only a couple of tiny nicks. The pages are excellent with no markings and no damage that I can find. The paper is impressive in its beauty, quality and opacity. The cover has light denting and a couple of pinhole-size nicks at the top of the spine.
And a dot of wear at the base of the spine. Please review all pictures carefully! Original Goatskin NEBs are extremely rare.Especially one in this exceptional condition. I really struggled over whether to put this one up for sale or keep it for myself. It is a very beautiful Bible. ORIGINAL black goatskin leather - NOT a rebind (extremely rare). Verse and chapter numbers outside of text. Printed on strong, opaque paper. Dimensions: 8 x 5.5 x 1.75.
