This is a great antique Bible - the Leather covers are fully intact with no tears - all pages are firmly attached - the spine is tight, the book is strong and solid.
The title page reads: The Holy Bible - Containing The Old and New Testaments, stereotyped by L. Johnson, Philadelphia, the date 1833 is shown on the bottom of the title page (i.e. 1833 printing). This is a large, oversized book that measures about 10' x 7' x 3' thick - the Old Testament has 750 pages and the New Testament has 238 pages. There are no illustrations. The book has fancy marbled endpapers.
The book is in very nice condition - the leather covers show some general scuff marks and edgewear - the binding is very solid and the covers are fully attached with no tears. The Gold Text on the spine that says Holy Bible is still present and readable. The pages show some foxing (light spotting) due to age - the paper is still strong and supple (not brittle at all).
This old Bible has survived the last 175 years very nicely. Please add $4 for quick and careful shipping in a sturdy box. My books are all guaranteed as described. My Feedback is 100%. Thanks
