Canne, John: Canne's Bible Edinburgh: Printed by John Mosman and William Brown, Printers to the King's Most Excellent Majesty 1727.
22 x 14 cm, no pagination. contemporary calf binding, six panelled spine with raised bands and contemporary spine label, some gilt lining, much faded. Contains the Old and New Testaments and the Psalms in Metre. The title page for the Old Testament is missing, but there is one for the New Testament, however the end page of the Old Testament is marked as also being printed 1727. One gathering, part of the Psalms and Song of Solomon appears not to have been bound in but has been replaced by a different edition, also Canne but in smaller page and text size. It looks a little odd, and there is some textual overlap. It is a replacement which could be contemporary with the original but we can offer no clearer explanation. The last few Psalms in metre are missing and have been replaced by some other pages carefully added, containing the missing Psalms. Boards worn and rubbed, corners bumped, spine with a centre split which has not come apart, internally used but tight. The front pastedown bears the ownership label of, Rev. John Kinnear D.D. Letterkenney. Kinnear, 1824-1909 was a Presbyterian Minister and an M.P. for Donegal from 1880-85. He carried the banner of Tenant Right and was a benefactor of Magee University Library in Londonderry. A previous owner has annotated the dates of reading the New Testament, "begun May 1754" to, "finished reading the 25th August 1776" but no identity is given. Canne, c.1580-1667 believed "scripture is its own best interpreter", and produced his reference Bible as a labour of scholarship and love. It was first printed in Amsterdam in 1644. An interesting Association copy. £150.00
