Review

"Rather than make judgments about what is and what is not properly considered a Bible or a part of the Bible, bibliographer Chamberlin has taken a very inclusive approach, admitting the Apocryphal books and even the Koran and arranging them within a framework that works from the whole through smaller parts in the accustomed order (i.e., the complete Bible, Hebrew scriptures, Pentateuch, . . . major prophets, . . . New Testament, Gospels, etc). Within each of these sections the translations are arranged chronologically by first publication date. Free from the constraints of Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules for form of entry and description, Chamberlin is able to provide lengthy descriptive notes and group successive and variant editions together. Helpful notes trace the relationship between later translators and translations and earlier translators and translations. Users can identify the work of particular editors or translators through the index. With its fuller descriptions and more convenient access to English versions of the Bible and its parts, this complements and extends the coverage of the Bible available through volumes 53-56 of the National Union Catalog Pre-1956 Imprints (London: Mansell, 1980) and belongs in serious Bible studies collections."-Wilson Library Bulletin

"This catalogue is a landmark in the bibliography or English Bibles, for it at last covers a field where even the book auctioneers were in the dark. It should be in the possession of all who are seriously involved in the subject."-Antiquarian Book Monthly Review (U.K.)

Synopsis

Chamberlin's one volume work traces the publication history of multiple editions of Bible translations and offers valuable descriptive annotations. The catalogue includes not only complete Bibles, but also Old and New Testaments, partial texts, commentaries that include translations, children's Bibles, apocryphal writings, and the Koran. And while other bibliographies are usually limited to editions commonly found in academic libraries, Chamberlin's guide includes Bibles found in private collections. The entries are grouped in 151 categories, and within each category entries are listed in chronological order. The accompanying annotations identify the translator and overview the contents of each work. The detailed indexes make this bibliography a convenient tool for researchers. Bible scholars, collectors, and rare book dealers should find this catalogue a valuable addition to their libraries.
