The Bible is in fair condition though the binding is loose and a couple of the first pages are completely detached.It has many very lovely engravings throughout and contains the Apocrypha and a complete concordance.It was originally purchased from Vickery & Co., Booksellers in Norfolk, VA.
I am glad to provide pictures of the Bible to anyone interested.Please contact me directly at Joy@JustaJoy.com Thanks, Joy Shivar JustaJoy Historical Treasures www.JustaJoy.com
