It’s that special time again: Miniature Monday! Please keep the citation when reblogging!

This is a satisfyingly chunky miniature Bible from 1693.  It is bound in leather with metal clasps.  A small Bible like this is ideal for the on-the-go religious practitioner.  In fact, the miniature book form is perfect for keeping religious texts close at hand, thus, the Charlotte Smith Miniature Collection contains several examples of minuscule devotional texts like this one and this one.  AND, let’s not forget our FIRST EVER Miniature Monday post, which just happens to be a miniature Bible as well.

Taylor, John, 1580-1653.Verbum sempiternum. London, Printed for Tho. James, and are to be sold at the Printing Press in Mincing Lane, and most booksellers in London and Westminster, [1693] 3d ed. with amendments.
