EVERYTHING MUST GO BY APRIL 1ST! SEE MY OTHER OTHER ITEMS AND MAKE ME AN OFFER!!! ULTRA, ULTRA-RARE AND SCARCE 1833 FIRST-EDITION NOAH WEBSTER HOLY BIBLE! “THE HOLY BIBLE, CONTAINING THE OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENTS” By Noah Webster, Author of the Famous Webster Dictionary! New Haven (Connecticut) Published by Durrie & Peck, 1833. Quarto, measuring 9″ x 6″, with 907 printed pages, TOTALLY COMPLETE WITH THE ULTRA-RARE ERRATA SLIP PRESENT!!! Original Full Calf Leather Binding, rebacked. Noah Webster’s 1833 limited revision of the King James Version focused mainly on replacing archaic words and making simple grammatical changes. For example: “why” instead of “wherefore”, “its” instead of “his” when referring to nonliving things, “male child” instead of “manchild”, etc. He also introduced euphemisms to remove words he found offensive: “whore” becomes “lewd woman”. Overall, very few changes were made, and the result is a book which is almost indistinguishable from the King James Version. It has sometimes been called the “Common Version” (which is not to be confused with the Common Bible of 1973, an ecumencial edition of the Revised Standard Version). Modern critics are surprised by just how little Webster changed the King James Version. His revision was very light, as he did not want to make the language wholly contemporary, but rather wanted to correct flaws he disagreed with as an educator. Other, less orthodox Americans were bringing out their own versions of the New Testament, but he had no interest in theologically motivated changes. One notable change that was beyond just revising language flaws was a correction changing the word “Easter” in Acts 12:4 to the word “Passover”. It is noteworthy that throughout Webster’s revision of the King James Bible, the lexicographer replaced “Holy Ghost” with “Holy Spirit”. Webster did so because he knew that in the Scriptures this expression did not mean “an apparition”. In the preface of his Bible, Webster wrote: Some words have fallen into disuse; and the signification of others, in current popular use, is not the same now as it was when they were introduced into the version. The effect of these changes is, that some words are not understood by common readers, who have no access to commentaries, and who will always compose a great proportion of readers; while other words, being now used in a sense different from that which they had when the translation was made, present a wrong signification or false ideas. Whenever words are understood in a sense different from that which they had been introduced, and different from that of the original languages, they do not present to the reader the Word of God. The problem with the older books was confusion on the part of readers as the language styles had been evolving over the years and a lot of meaning of the text in this Bible was being lost on the average reader. Some passages were misunderstood. Grammar had evolved as well and the above changes made an easier read while purifying the language and making it more delicate.

Rare antique carved natural red coral religious Madonna figure Italian Chinese

A rare natural red coral carving of a religious figure, the Madonna. Possibly Chinese or Italian made(Trapanese). It has three separately carved cherubs on its feet surrounded by mother of pearl clouds. The figure itself is made from several pieces of coral, carved by a skilled and master craftsman. You won’t see this kind of artwork everyday! I would suspect this dates from the 18th or 19th c but could also be older. The back of the figure is of wood and painted red, as an armature to hold the pieces together. It comes in an ebonized wooden base. Standing 16cm plus 5cm base and weighs 126 grams by itself. It is missing both index fingers and some pieces from the mother of pearl clouds. There’s a hole at the back for a possible halo? The condition reflects its age but still is a beautiful piece to behold. Please ask all questions prior to purchasing. Read the description carefully.

This item is in the category “Antiques\Asian Antiques\China\Figurines & Statues”. The seller is “jesulein90″ and is located in Vancouver BC. This item can be shipped to United States, Canada.

RARE MEDIEVAL BONIFACE IX LEAD PAPAL BULLA religious seal found Kent 027592 - August 27, 2017 by admin
RARE MEDIEVAL BONIFACE IX LEAD PAPAL BULLA religious seal found Kent 027592

RARE MEDIEVAL BONIFACE IX. ST PETER & ST PAUL. Lead, 42.15 grams. A cast papal bull of Boniface IX. To the obverse is the SPA. SPE legend within a pelletted border, with two bearded busts and a cross between; to the reverse, within a pelletted border is the legend’BONI/FATIUS:/P. Pope Bonifatius (Boniface) was born Piero Tomacelli, at Casarano in the kingdom of Naples in 1350. He was pope from 1389 until his death in 1404, while the antipope Clement VII (137894) continued to hold court as pope in the French city of Avignon under the protection of the French monarchy. Boniface’s papacy is noted for his cautious and prudent style, regaining control of the chief castles of the Papal States. In England, the preaching of John Wyclif supported the opposition of the king and the ecclesiastical establishment to Boniface IX’s granting vacant English benefices to his favourites in the Roman Curia. Papal favours were costly at this time, as the Vatican’s revenues were depleted by the anti-pope. Good very fine condition. Provenance: found Dartford, Kent, UK.
