This Bible has been sold - for similar Bibles like this one that are still available click here to  visit our Antique Family Bible Store!

An elegantly and profusely (with an eye for so many details) illustrated Antique Family Bible in a VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT condition, really bulking with Biblical information. The leather covers of this 1873 'PERFECT' Bible are beautifully embossed in gold with various inscriptions,. This Bible has thousands of illustrations of which many full page and in color. Besides the complete presentation of  the Authorized (King James) Version of the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha, this Bible contains in additional sections (text from the title page): "Cruden's complete concordance; the Psalms in Metre; a comprehensive Bible dictionary, full illustrated; a pictorial history of each of the Books of the Bible; Biographical sketches of the translators and reformers; the live and martyrdom of the Holy Apostles and Evangelists; Egyptian, Jewish and Biblical antiquities; Cities of the Bible; Biblical scenery; Manners and customs of the ancients; Natural history, beautifully illustrated with accurate chromographs; religious denominations; Science and revelation; Temple of Solomon and history of the Jewish worship, with superb chromatic engravings; and numerous other valuable aids and features, profusely and elegantly illustrated."" There is also a (unmarked) section for recording the personal family events.


This Bible is in a VERY GOOD, close to EXCELLENT condition. It looks like it has not been used or opened much. The bindings are holding strong and the book feels solid, there are no loose pages. There is NO writing on any of the pages.  The gold embossing on the edges of the covers and  the gold gilt on the edges of the pages is still nicely present . There are NO ripped  pages (apart from a few small rips at the first pages of the Bible) nor any staining, just a slight 'aging' of the paper. There is some wear to the edges of the covers and areas on the leather. This Bible is truly a remarkable antique book.
