Holy Bible (1865)

Holy Bible (1865)
This Bible, printed in Dublin, Ireland, exemplifies the efforts of the Catholic Church to make the Bible accessible to its members while still staying as true as possible to the original Latin translations. According to the Approbation behind the title page, this Bible was compiled collating "the Clementine Vulgate; likewise with the Douay Version of the Old Testament of 1609, and with the Rhemish Version of the New Testament of 1582, and with other approved English Versions." Each of these Bibles were compiled and published with the authority of the Catholic church for its members.

This Bible also seems to appeal to more general audiences by its plentitude of exquisite illustrations. Some full page illustrations are even in full color. There is also a Family Register to record important family information.
