Original bookplate of A. Gifford D.D. ' of the Museum', unsigned.
Between 1757 and 1784. 9 x 6.9cm. (platemark). Arthur Gifford (1700 -1784), baptist minister and collector. He naïvely bequeathed his important collection of Bibles in English (including the unique Coverdale New Testament of 1526), not to the British Museum (sharp ingratitude), but to the Bristol Baptist College. Of course, not now answerable to the donor, the worthy Trustees sold them all off in the late 1970s to double-glaze the chapel. The, '...of the Museum', on the plate is somewhat pretentious, as Gifford was but assistant keeper of books and manuscripts at the British Museum (albeit from 1757 until his death).
