AntiqueBible.com wants to offer you ways to restore our Christian traditions: By Reading, Studying or Collecting Bibles owned and cherished by the generations before us!
Are you looking for a Protestant or Roman Catholic Antique Family Bible? One of those 'old-fashioned' large sized Bibles that will become part of your family's tradition to be handed down from generation to generation? One of those 'huge' ones with a leather covers with gold leaf decorations and one or more brass or silver clasps to close the book? A Bible that is not only attractive to read and study and has multiples engraved illustrations on steel and wood, some in full color, but also contains special sheets to record (your) extensive family records?
These Bibles are not only breathtakingly beautiful but they are also very educational and often have an extensive concordance and Bible dictionary, multiple background essays (Bible history, translation history, background on Bible customs, the Holy Land etc.) and numerous illustrations, maps and commentaries. These books are true pieces of art and quite astounding as you consider the limited available technology available at that time.

At AntiqueBible.com we also offer an extensive and remarkably affordable inventory of early (1600s-1700s) King James Bibles as well as Geneva Bibles (1560-1615) and other pre-KJV English translations for sale. Some of these Bibles are pulpit-size, but most are so called quarto-size and were used by our ancestors as personal study Bibles. Just think about how many different generations of people owned ones of the Bibles and took them to church? These 300-400+ year old Bibles are all remarkably well preserved because of the strong cotton-based paper that was used in those days. In general they have been rebound a number of times of the centuries but the inside is still ALL original.

2. Early English Bibles

Antique and collectable Bibles of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century. Rare, antique and vintage English Bibles printed in England and America, including various Geneva and early King James Bibles occasionally bound together with a Book of Common Prayer, the genealogies (illustrated overview of the descent from Adam), the Apocrypha, some Tables or Concordances and a Metric Psalter - sometimes including remarkable engravings! Click to visit our original Geneva Bibles, Early King James Bibles and a number of Special Bible Editions.
3. Prayer and Church Books
As the Bible became more readily available the publishing of dedicated church and prayer books started to take off. These mostly smaller sized books usually contained a copy of the Common Book of Prayer (the liturgy of the Anglican Church of England) usually bound with a New Testament and a metric Psalter. Often these pocket size books were nicely illustrated and became more and more attractive in the early and mid 1800s. We offer a nice collection of Prayer/Church Books and Miniature Prayer Books.
4. Other Christian Books
In this section of our inventory you will find commentaries, study books, special editions (like Gustave Dore galleries of illustrations, Foxe books of Martyrs and so on). All published in the 1600-1800s. Click here to visit our Antique Christian Book Section.
5. Biblia Sacra
Biblia Sacra - Holy Bibles - Latin Vulgate (Roman Catholic before the Reformation Bibles) and early Latin Protestant Bibles
6. Dutch and other language Antique Bibles
Even though Dutch language Bibles are not as extensively printed as English Bible, being of Dutch decent, we offer quite an extensive inventory of Dutch (Nederlandse Statenbijbels) State Bibles and Dutch Church/Prayer Books. We also offer a collection of Bibles in other languages, like German, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, French and so on.

A note on the quality of our Antique Bibles:
We take great pride in the quality of the Bibles we offer. We cannot replace missing pages or undo water damage and so on, but we do make sure that the binding of the pages as well as the covers is in good (daily) useable condition. Therefore most Bibles go through a restoration process where the spines are cleaned of old failing adhesive and loose pages or broken signatures are restored/replaced. Old spine leather is reinforced or replaced and spine reinforcement is applied with new headbands and the cover hinge is extra re-enforced. Also the cover leather is cleaned and treated and if applicable the clasps are cleaned and restored. This is not just a patch job! This process brings the strength of the book back to its original quality!
