Description / Comments:
Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Original spine missing, covers still attached and text block binding is sound. From the library of Amy Bess Miller, author on all matters Shaker and founder of the Hancock Shaker Museum. This is Part II of the “Shaker Bible” titled: “A Sacred Roll and Book to the Nations of the Earth”. Later, both parts were bound together, but this Part II is separately bound as explained in the Preface: “We would further state, that it was our original design, to publish the whole of this work in one part entire; but owing to unavoidable circumstances prejudicial to a speedy publication of that portion of the work embraced in the second part, we have been compelled to issue it in two parts”, signed The Publishers, September, 1843. Hence it would appear that this is a true first edition of this part. Speckled tan cloth over boards, text block edges speckled, [1], pages 223-402, [2, Corrections], [3, Contents to Part II]. Back strip is missing, chipped at spine ends, corners bumped with light wear, end papers foxed, interior pages are mostly clean, but there is occasional foxing on perhaps 4-5 pages, previous owner Amy Bess Miller has signed on a front fly leaf.
