A fairly nice copy of the Phinney cheap edition of the New Hieroglyphical Bible, this a strangely uncommon printing. (Phinney had also issued an earlier one with an 1824 publication date, as well as a number from 1829 onward.) The pagination here agrees with that of other Phinney editions.

Price: $225.00
