The New Testament in Manx. Full leather binding, heavily marked and rubbed, with edge wear. The name of the publisher, British & Foreign Bible Society, is blind stamped on the front cover, but difficult to discern. Much of the lower 15 mm of the spine is missing, and the head of the spine is rubbed with some nicks in the leather. The corners are worn and bumped. The front pastedown has a small binder's label in the upper left corner, a date (April 1865) in ink, and what appears to be an ink inscription that has been partially removed (by rubbing away the paper) and replaced by a new name in red ink. The title page, which is missing the upper part (but not affecting the printed text) is detached. It also has part of a name in ink, scratched through in red. The front hinge is weakened, but the remainder of the book is tightly bound. The pages are age toned, with occasional foxing, and there are black stains to the lower corners of pages 217 and 219. Worm holes affect the lower margins (but not text) of the pages from page 311 to the end of the book (including part of the surface of the rear cover), starting with a tiny hole and getting progressively larger. There are smudge marks to the rear free end paper and pastedown.
