"The Holy Bible is like a mirror before our mind's eye. In it we see our inner face. From the Scriptures we can learn our spiritual deformities and beauties. And there too we discover the progress we are making and how far we are from perfection."
— Pope St. Gregory the Great
We humbly present to you our much anticipated Haydock Bible!
This has been our biggest labor of love yet!
Available in three colors of bonded leather!
Those who are not familiar with this indispensable Bible will be pleased to learn that it is an exact photographic reprint of the 1883 version originally published by Gately & Co., complete with extensive commentary by the Rev. Geo. Leo Haydock, from whom the Bible gets its name. Great care and countless hours have been given to scan and clean up each and every one of the over 1780 pages as well as faithfully reproduce the glory and grandeur of the original hardbound cover. We pray we have given justice to this timeless masterpiece!
Deluxe sewn binding for best quality, gold gilt page edges, bonded-leather hardbound, ornate gold embossed stamping on spine and cover, ribbon bookmarker. We have spared no expense!
Simply the best! Our Haydock Bible has 8x11 pages and large (12-point type), with Rev. Geo. Leo Haydock’s copious, comprehensive commentary (smaller print) comprising up to one third to one half of the page on some accounts (see example).
This will be an excellent gift when only the best will do!
An heirloom treasure that can be passed on for generations.
