89. The Elizabeth Bible

Moscow, 1757. National Library of Belarus, Minsk

The second Moscow edition of the Elizabeth Bible of 1757. A wonderful sample of the Russian engraving and printing art. With some minor corrections, the Elizabeth Bible is still used as an authorized liturgical text by the Russian Orthodox Church.
