GIFTS by NAME
from the Kennicott Bible for Amos, David, Ezekiel, Haggai, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Malachi and Samuel.

AMOS



£ 55.00 Kennicott Bible folio 301 folio 301
The beginning of the Book of Amos is decorated with a colourful border.



DAVID



£ 55.00 Kennicott Bible folio 185 folio 185
King David as an old man at the beginning of the Book of Kings, is seated on a stylised gold and coloured throne decorated with geometrical interlaces and penwork foliage motifs. He has a long greying beard, wears a large crown, and holds a large gold club for a sceptre. The miniature bears, however, some resemblance to pictures of the king in playing cards from a popular Spanish pack of cards. David's large club should be compared with a sheet of various Catalan cards which was found in the binding of a book printed in Barcelona in 1495 and may have been available to Joseph, the artist when he designed King David. By providing it with a Biblical context, Joseph produced a re¬presentation of David that is apparently unique.
