This is a large antique family King James Bible with leather covers and gold page edges. It measures 12.5' by 10.5' by 3.125' thick and weighs several pounds.
A small sticker is inside the front cover with the former owner's name. About 5 pages in the front of the Bible has clear tape to repair tears. These are the only flaws of this nature that I noticed.
No copywrite date can be found but it looks to be from the early 1900's. It is profusely illustrated with black and white art work from the masters. A couple of pages are in color with tissue paper still intact. It has a Hofmann gallery of art done in sepia.
The family section is still blank so you can fill it in and pass the Bible down to your children. The binding and hinges are tight and the cover has minimal rubbing. Like all old heavy books, it should be handled with care and never opened flat to avoid breaking the binding. This is a very nice Bible--not all tattered. Please ask any questions you might have.
Insurance is required and I am charging a minimal fee for shipping and handling. Please add $1.75 for insurance. I am starting with a low bid without reserve. Thanks for looking and bid with confidence.
