The Holy Bible

£39.99

Product description

"... containing the Old and New Testaments: translated out of the original tongues: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by His Majesty's Command". This version published by Oxford University Press for the British and Foreign Bible Society dated 1857.

Black buckram covered boards with title and publisher blind stamped on the front, there were some details on the spine in gilt but they are now mostly worn off. The covering of the spine is cracked with some areas peeled off and the cloth exposed. Some spotting to the front and back. The edges show signs of shelf-wear and the corners are worn and bumped.

The both boards are loose having split at the hinge but they are still connected by the binding. The binding is generally in good order for a book of this age with a few breaks but no loose pages. A previous owner has inscribed in copperplate ink on the front pastedown. The text appears to be clean and unmarked as far as inspected, some page corners are folded over.
