The New Testament in Modern Speech : an idiomatic translation into everyday English from the text of "The Resultant Greek Testament", edited and partly revised by Ernest Hampden-Cook. The first edition was published in 1903, and this book is a second edition, published in 1905.
The book is bound in black leather and has a range of general marks and areas of light scuffing, plus a water-stain to the front lower right corner. The spine has suffered some damage and has surface wear although the gilt titles can still be seen; a section of the cover at the top of the spine, up to approx. 8mm, is missing. The front cover is loose, but still attached to the front end papers, up to the half-title page, where it is joined to it at the bottom by approx. 4.2cm of paper. The remainder of the text block is sound, and the fine paper leaves, with lightly tanned margins, have gilt edges.
The front end paper has a decorated book plate in the name of Alexander Fraser with the written date 14th June 1906, and above it is a neat dedication in black ink, 'to dear Gertrude with Fathers Love'.
