Publisher's Description

The Psalms of David
James S. Freemantle
Foreword 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.

Author Bio

James S. Freemantle died in 1934, the year he finished The Psalms of David. It was many years later that his son, Stephen, decided to have it published.

    Quickly became one of my most prized possessions!

    I gave numerous copies as gifts this year and all have been received with over the top appreciation.

    Kudos to "the Son" for making it widely available!

    I bought this for a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. I then bought one for myself and an additional one to keep on hand for a future gift. Beautiful illustrations and writings.

    I totally enjoyed reading this book. I still have a few pages to read in it but I enjoy reading it. I like the 23rd Psalm the best.
