Hartford: Silas Andrus, 1825. Fourth edition, 12mo, pp.129, [1]; lacking pages 9-10, 47-96, 125-128, and 130-[134] (page 130 being blank in this copy but with text on copies checked online); woodblock illustrations throughout text, many crudely hand colored; calf-backed paper-covered boards; spine partially perished, textblock split and pp. 37-38 loose; a deeply flawed copy, but still a visually interesting novelty, telling the major stories of the Bible through a rebus text. This edition is in neither Osborn nor Welch, both of whom list a number of different editions. American Imprints 19677. Item #58190
