1756 British Bible – “It presents both the Old and New Testament, although the books are not bound together the regular way, behind one another. Instead, the binder opted to place them next to each other. This very rare binding technique is part of a family that includes the dos-à-dos (or “back to back”) binding…Having the two testaments bound this way allowed the reader to consult passages from both books at the same time.”
These are my favorites. There are 32 more pieces of jewelry here.
