(BIBLE; English.) BURDER, Samuel (ed.)
The Scripture Expositor; a New Commentary, Critical and Practical on the Holy Bible;
in which Difficult Passages are Explained, Mistranslations Corrected, and Apparent Contradictions Reconciled, by Reference to the Labours of the most celebrated Critics and Commentators, Ancient and Modern; particularly to the Treasures of Eastern Literature.
This edition with notes by the Church of England Clergyman Samuel Burder (1773-1836) was first published in 1809, this issue is scarce: apparently not in the British Library and Copac records only four copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Glasgow, Trinity Saint David, Oxford, Southampton), OCLC adds just the copy at Dundee University. A handsome Regency Bible in a lovely period binding.
