Every once in awhile I stop at our local used book store and look for goodies.  Today was surprised to find this little gem.

I figured I’d write a little blurb about it, put some pictures up, and ask you, the reader for any information you might know about this interesting little New Testament.

The cover appears to be cowhide leather, with a perimeter groove, yapp style, with the words, “New Testament and Psalms” stamped in gold on the front.  On the spine it says, “New Testament” at the head and, “Winston” at the tail.

It is about 3″ by 4 3/4″ and about 3/4″ thick.  The page edges are art gilt.  There is one purple ribbon marker.  The words of Christ are in red.  It is laid out in double column, verse format.  It has some colored pictures of art work in it.  There is a reading plan in the front, an article about the Lord’s Prayer in the back, and a list of Parables and Miracles.  It has plain white head and tail bands.  Here are a few of the pictures;

Here it is compared to my Crossway ESV Verse by Verse Reference Bible,

Please take a look at the rest of the pictures I took of it on my flickr page here.

I’m really interested in what you know about this particular edition, the publisher, the age of this edition, and any other things you might know about it.  There was no date marked on it or written in it by anyone.  From what I’ve read on the internet, it seems that it could have been made between 1890-1930, but that is speculation.  Thanks in advance and enjoy the pics.
