DAS NEUE TESTAMENT zum Wachsthum in der Gnade und der Erkaenntniß des Herrn Jesu christi, nach dem revidirten Grundtext übersetzt und mit dienlichen Anmerckungen begleitet von D. Johann Albrecht Bengel.
(The New Testament...translated and accompanied with notes by Johann Albrecht Bengel.)
Contemporary vellum covered boards, 6x8 inches (12x19.5 cm), 1016 pages. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece.
STUTTGART: Johann Benedict Metzler, 1753.
GOOD condition: the vellum covers are age browned, have some scrapes, rubs, etc., but are still doing their job. Internally, the front joint is split but holding, a couple of the first blank leaves are loose, there are extensive relevant ink notes in a neat, tiny script on the blank front free endpapers, the inner pages are age toned, overall generally sound with text that is bright and clear throughout.
