Published in London by Folio Society. 2017. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. A jewel-like pocket edition of the monumental King James Version of the Book of Psalms, with exquisitely designed lettering by Jessica Hische and a new introduction by Valentine Cunningham. Bound in blocked cloth. Set in Arno. 296 pages. Printed in 2 colours throughout. Blocked slipcase. Gilt rose-gold page tops. Ribbon marker 6¼" x 4¼". The Book of Psalms is the spiritual ‘heart’ of the Bible, a key instrument of communal worship for practising Christians and Jews and a focus for private devotion. The 150 Psalms also form the ancient world’s greatest collection of poetry, continuing to speak to readers with unparalleled power more than 2,500 years after they were first composed. Known in Hebrew simply as ‘Tehillim’ or ‘Praises’, the Psalms range from the glorification to the vindictive blaming of God, lamenting failures to celebrating triumphs, boasting of righteousness to abject confessions of wrongdoing; they take us from the heights of confidence to the depths of self-doubt, from crippling despair to overwhelming joy. With their highly personal outpourings and vast psychological range, reading the Psalms remains an intense religious, literary and emotional experience.
