From a reader who is looking to sell a rebound Douay-Confraternity:
Hello All, I've got an old Confraternity/Douay-Rheims bible that I'm trying to find a good home for. It's a St. Joseph edition from 1963, containing the completely revised NT and Confraternity translations of the OT except for 1 Kings-Esther and 1 & 2 Machabees. I originally inherited the bible from Tim, and then in the throes of a rebinding obsession, had it recovered and rebound in goatskin leather in the historical "Circuit Rider," style from Leonard's Book restoration.
I'm trying to sell it because quite frankly, it's too nice of a bible with too nice a recovering to just sit on a shelf. In my house it has to compete for attention with a rebound RSV2CE Didache and a rebound Knox. I was hoping someone here might be interested.
In the interests of full disclosure, it does have some fading damage on the spine and middle of the side flap that I tried to highlight in some of the pictures. This comes from my use of it in a hosptial ministry where I was constantly dousing my hands with alcohol sanitizer while carrying it. There's also some spots on the bottom edges of the pages, possibly water spots? I'm not sure. The pages themselves though, are perfectly pristine and enjoy that old book smell though.
If you're interested, contact me at my email: tadena (at) gmail (dot) com. I'd be hoping for around $170.00 to recoup some of the cost, buyer paying shipping. I am open to negotiating a bit on that though.
