Gustave Dore first began publishing Bible illustrations in 1865 in France, but because of their immense popularity, they would see reissues for decades and all over the western world. Most of these large, multi-volume Bibles, that contained nearly 250 engravings, were too heavy and expensive for the common buyer, so smaller products were published that featured only illustrations and no Bible text. These became the ‘Dore Bible Gallery’ editions.

 

Josephine Pollard, a prominent children’s author, wrote this book for children to work through phases of the Bible from the garden of Eden to the Ascension of Jesus Christ, selecting plates from Dore’s celebrated illustrations of the Holy Bible.

 

This 1884 edition includes 52 illustrated plates by Dore!
