Rather scarce early edition of Silas Andrus' "Hieroglyphic Bible." This is the Fourth Edition, but the earliest edition on the market by quite a long shot. Designed for children as essentially the first "Children's Bibles," by nature of their primary consumers, they often failed to survive. 

The Hieroglyphic Bible; Or, Select Passages in the Old and New Testaments, Represented with Emblematical Figures, for the Amusement of Youth: Designed Chiefly to Familiarize Tender Age, in a Pleasing and Diverting Manner, with Early Ideas of the Holy Scriptures. To which are Subjoined, a Short Account of the Lives of the Evangelists, and Other Pieces. Illustrated with Nearly Five Hundred Cuts. Hartford. Published by Silas Andrus. 1825. 132pp.

Original quarter leather over marbled boards; very solid. Front 1/3 of board at base lacking, chipped and abraded at extremities. Interior very solidly bound with some foxing throughout and an occasional small tear.

Early ownership inscription of Hannah L. Colson and Sarah Ranard [sp.]
