Seller: email@example.com Their ad reads: This auction is for a Hardings' Fine Edition of the Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments - Translated out of the Original Tongues..." published in Philadelphia by William W. Harding in 1860. The front cover reads: Search the Scriptures - Mr. & Mrs. C.M. Abbott - A Mothers Gift (done in gold gilt). This large and heavy bible is in fair to good condition. The outer leather cover has quite a bit of wear as seen in the photos, but the inside pages are pretty clean and intact. Just previous to the New Testament portion of the book, is 4 pages of hand-written family history of Charles M. Abbott and Helen K. Smith who were married in 1859. The last dated entry is 1975. The bible contains black & white along with colored illustrations. There is some foxing or minor spotting here and there on some of the pages containing illustrations, but otherwise, as stated, the pages are clean. I also have a 2 volume set of the Abbott family history from 1906 up for auction at this time.
