A beautiful - with unused family record pages - Roman Catholic - Douay Rheims - antique family Bible with an exquisite decorative cover which consists of  thick leather covered boards embossed and with intricate artwork, a (gold gilt) cross and Bible related decorations. Gold gilt pages. On the spine in gold letter the text "Holy Bible - References" is written. The text of this Bible is the Douay-Rheims Bible (or Doway Rheims Bible or D-R Bible), which is an English translation from the Latin Vulgate ("... diligently compared  with the Hebrew, Greek and Other Editions in Divers Languages ... with useful notes, critical, historical, controversial and explanatory ... by the late Rev. Geo. Leo Haydock ... the Very Rev. F.C. Husenbeth..."). The text covers the complete Old and New Testament as well as the books that are often referred to as the Apocrypha (included in the Old Testament). Multiple approbations by various American Bishops and Cardinals. Extensive Haydock notes with the Bible text (like a modern day study Bible).
