Item description for The Psalms of David by James S. Freemantle...

An exact facsimile of the hand-painted illuminated edition of the Book of Psalms done by James S. Freemantle, for his family, in the early part of this century

Publishers Description
The Psalms of DavidJames S. FreemantleForeword by Stephen Freemantle

Back in print, The Psalms of David is a unique, beautifully illustrated edition of the revered religious work, also known as the Book of Psalms.

The lifework of a little known genius, this facsimile edition of a magnificent hand-painted illumination of the Psalms of David is a stunning tribute to love and spiritual devotion.

Born in India, James Freemantle traveled through the Middle East during his years in the British Army. Shortly after his second marriage, he began this hand-lettered, illustrated volume for his beloved bride, Clara. For the next thirty years, he periodically worked to transfer the psalms into a book that would physically match the lyrical beauty of the poetry.

Throughout the book one finds the brilliantly colored blooms of India: the jacaranda, the flame-of-the-forest, huge yellow laburnums, brilliant poinsettias, and highly scented mimosa. The pages are alive with kingfishers and larks, drummers and hoppie butterflies, storks and pheasants. There are pictures of the lake near Freemantle's home, the nearby Brahmin temple, and the view from the train as he went up to school in the hills. Scenes from his travels in the army, Middle Eastern harbors and villages, and copies of illustrations from Victorian travel books reveal his draftsman's training in the accuracy of every detail.

A labor of love, a work of art, a volume to treasure, this illuminated edition of the King James version of the Psalms of David is the perfect gift for all seasons.

Beautiful  Jan 21, 2007
Purchased as a gift for a special friend. Beautiful artwork and wonderfully done book to enjoy.
Great book - NOT Great Condition!  Jan 20, 2007
I love this book, but, unfortunately, was a bit disappointed in its condition! Though it was supposedly "new", it was obviously worn. All along the jacket, there are worn gray marks, and even the binding is a little bent in. I would return it except for the fact that I would end up having to pay shipping on it twice!
I'm so glad at being able to locate the book, but the price I paid was, in part, a less-than-perfect copy.
The Psalms of David  Jan 19, 2007
I am a little disappointed in this book. The illustrations are beautiful, but the text is very hard to read.
A wonderful gift item, a beautiful book  Jan 8, 2007
My husband and I came across this book several years ago. It is filled with wonderful illustrations, and beautifully scripted wording. We have given this book several times as a gift, and it is always received warmly. It's a great book to read to focus on the Psalms, and also enjoyable as a poetry volume. Highly recommended.
Just lovely...  Sep 2, 2006
I agree with all of the other reviewers! You can't go wrong with this book. I bought it today in the gift shop of a NYC church and felt I had a treasure in my hands. It felt worth the $28.00 price. In fact, I started to cry when I read one of the passages...If you're sensitive to color, to form and beauty and if you like and enjoy the psalms, then it's really a treat. I had the saleswoman wrap it up as a myself!! She said she was giving it the "royal treatment" as she wrapped it. Yes, King David's psalms deserve that amount of care and love, and the artist surely had that in mind in the creation of this lovely keepsake. When you buy it, you are buying Time and Love and Honor to the Beloved. That's why it feels so good to hold it in your hands. And, I happen to think it brings out the Word of God...just my feeling. Thanks for reading my comments!
