Product Description: This classic Douay-Rheims version of the Old and New Testaments contains the invaluable footnotes, gathered by Fr. George Leo Haydock, from the Fathers and Doctors who lived in the early centuries of Christendom, closest in proximity to the lives of the Apostles. First published in 1884 and digitally reproduced in order to ensure an exact duplication of the original text, this new edition in Hardback includes the Illustrated Bible Dictionary and a history of the books of the Bible in one volume. The cover has gold embossing stamped on burgundy colored leather, using the pattern which appeared on the original 1884 edition, a gold cross with rich Catholic symbols patterning the entire front of the cover. This Bible will undoubtedly be a collectors item for many years to come and provide an irreplaceable version of the Bible which is uniquely one of a kind in the English language.
