This is a beautifully illustrated and fully 'loaded'  Antique Family Bible in an EXCELLENT  condition. This 1880-1890ies (there no publication date mentioned, but a note that refers to 1892) luxury Bible has an outstanding period full leather binding with remarkable pictorial (depicting scenes from the Bible) gilt stamped beveled boards & spine, all edges gilt, ornate engraved clasps still present and functional.

As per the title page: "Self-Pronouncing Edition. Holy Bible containing the King James and the Revised Versions of the Old and New Testaments, arranged in Parallel Columns. The Text conformable to that of the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. With A Complete Concordance and the Psalms of David in Metre. Copious Marginal References, Chronological Tables, and Many important and Valuable aids to the study of the holy scriptures. Written to Increase the Interest in and simplify the word of God"

There is NO writing in the family pages/section of this Bible! Clean and Unused


This Bible is in an EXCELLENT condition, joints & edges gently scuffed & worn but overall very well preserved, leather remains supple, boards firm, contents clean, sound & overall tight. The binding has been professionally restored and is SOUND, also the covers are firmly attached for many generations to come. This book was acquired (in 1892) and likely owned for a long time by the Sondley Reference Library in Asheville, North Carolina., This shows in a small note on the inside cover & some small blind stamps to most of the plates & title page which are very easy to miss visually and do not detract when viewing the bible. No exterior library markings to the binding.
The antique family Bible is "as good as it gets"
