This QUARTO sized Geneva Bible is in an overall VERY GOOD  condition. This book is rebound beautifully in later paneled leather with blind stamped borders, spine with great title label, raised bands and original spine leather, measuring roughly 9 x 7 x 2.5 inches. A gorgeous specimen in nice external shape, forgiving only some rounding and light surface wear to the leather and covers.

Within, the Bible has remained in pretty nice shape; minimal instances of soiling and browning throughout but nothing major, (heavier on engraved main title, as shown) and a few leaves within have some small stains, but the majority of the text is great for its age, as shown, well kept. A few instances of marginalia and genealogy for the Coleman family in the early to mid 1700s in various places, as well as a bookplate for Thomas Tryon, who was a skilled bookplate engraver in the late 1800s. The Bible is printed in Latin font in English, two columns with frequent notes and marginal commentary, as well as great woodcuts, maps and more throughout. The Bible is complete, and although the New Testament engraved title is lacking, the rest remain, including the main engraved title, the standard title and the Whole Book of Psalms title, which is appended at the rear, complete with music.

A beautiful and complete Geneva Bible!
