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. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
