This is a gorgeous and super rare Victorian Self-Pronouncing Parallel Column Edition of the Holy Bible from 1891, Published by AJ Holman, Philadelphia. Fully adorned gilt designed Full-Leather covers, with gilt design and title. Almost 5'' thick! Beautiful gilt decorative
covers. TONS of Illustrations both in text and plates, many being from the amazing Biblical artist Gustave DORE. Cover is bright and clear in decorativeness, with moderate wear, some staining and some soiling; the front cover cleanly split yet still attached by one cord, the spine cover is still attached as well but could use some re-adherence. All pages, browned, seem to be present, some soiling but majority unchipped and only lightly browned and worn (minus first 10 or so, detached, unbound, showing some chipping). Family pages are present, with some small pencil markings from a child, but no family info, photo holders at rear have some tears and are worn but present.
A beautiful, somewhat
large, heavy collectible family bible with a rare, seldom seen design. Similar bibles in the same lightly worn condition have been sold for easily over 300.00. Good luck:) Dimensions 10'' wide, 13'' tall, 3'' thick.
