BIBLE | First Editions

As understood by both historians and followers of religion, the Bible is a collection of scriptures, written at different times in history. The Bible has contributions from various authors, and takes inspiration from a multitude of locations and landscapes. Jews and Christians consider the books of the Bible to be a product of divine inspiration, and receive the text as illustrative of the relationship between God and humans.

Bound Bibles are the specialism of various dealers and bookbinders throughout the world. Widely considered to be the best-selling book of all time, the influence of the Bible upon literature and history is major - particularly in the West. The Gutenberg Bible was the first mass-printed book, whilst the standard edition was the first book ever printed using movable type.
