The ‘Kennicott Bible’ has long been known as one of the most lavishly illustrated Bibles of the 18th-century. Benjamin Kennicott was a well-known English Hebraist who studied the Hebrew Bible and made his life’s work studying and comparing variants of Hebrew manuscripts. And while mass-produced editions of Kennicott’s Bible were not produced with the same vibrancy and page-to-page illustrations as the original, Family Bibles with Kennicott’s translations are still popular and widely read.

 

This 1795 Dublin printing was published by Zachariah Jackson who included 50 impressive, full-page engravings in this ‘authorized’ edition.
