The Comprehensive Bible; Containing the Old and New Testaments
Lippincott, Grambo & Co.
J. B. Lippincott & Co. was an American publishing house founded in Philadelphia by Joshua B. Lippincott in 1836. Lippincott's company began selling a line of Bibles like this one as well as prayer books and other religious works before expanding into trade books. For a time, in the 1850s, it did business as Lippincott, Grambo & Co., as demonstrated on this title page. Eventually it took on the name J. B. Lippincott & Co. Today HarperCollins controls Lippincott's back catalog of titles.
