Sorry folks, but I feel compelled to resurrect this thread.  Once again I am shouting from the figurative rooftops because I am so happy and joyful.  In the past year I have managed to acquire a 1917 "New and Improved Edition" of the Scofield Reference Bible.  I'm not kidding.  It really says "New and Improved Edition". It is in relative good condition.  The hinges are showing wear but they are still in usable condition.  The spine is separation only in one spot. It is on my list to be repaired.

Also ... tonight I acquired a first edition 1909 Scofield.  What is really amazing to me is that the cost was well within my $US20 budget. The condition is a wee bit rough but I think a judicious application of a razor, some glue and a bit of clamping and I shall have it in passable shape.  I am truly blessed and needed to share the news of my good fortune.  Thanks be to the Father of us all.

Might be wrong but the original one had a poorly worded note about dispensations indicating there were two methods of salvation which is used to this day on forums to down dispies when indeed the misstatement was corrected in later editions.

 

Glad you were able to find that which you sought :-) fun when you run across something.

 

I was 2000 miles from home on deputation and happened into a small shopping mall killing some time.  I was near broke when I happened to stop at a bargain table at a secular book store.  There was a New Scofield Bible for $9.00 :-)  My Bible was in a shambles and had been needing a replacement for several years!  Shouldn't have spent even that much but I did :-)
