DELIGHTFUL SCOTTISH WHEEL BINDING WITH SPLENDID ENDPAPERS

The New Testament

Edinburgh: Printed by Adrian Watkins, 1748. Full Calf, 5 1/2 inches tall. A delightful little volume with an elaborate gilt tooled design incorporating the 'Scottish wheel' on both boards, gilt raised bands, finely gilt tooled panels and all edges gilt. The joints are rubbed and worn, the headcap is lacking, but still solid. With splendid Dutch 18th century embossed gilt endpapers. Curiously the text in this volume begins in the Book of Proverbs and continues with the rest of the Old Testament before continuing with the whole of the New Testament. I assume this is to bulk the volume out for the convenience of the bookbinder.
