A beautiful (pre-civil war)
Family Bible by William W Harding. Gorgeously bound (antiquarian quality restored)
gold decorated brown leather covers and (gold decorated) spine with gold gilt page
edges and decorated brass closing claps. On the cover is a depiction of the
Bible with the text
'Search the Scriptures". The spine has five raised bands and is
imprinted with the gold letter text: "Holy Bible". The covers
and spine are very appealing (professionally restored) with exquisite
detail and perfection.
In the Bible is a series of
full page engravings with the texts of
the King James Old and New Testaments including also the text of the
Between the Old and New
Testament are never used family registry pages to record marriages,
births, and death. At the end of the Bible there is a complete
concordance and the Psalms in metre.
This Bible is in an overall
VERY GOOD condition.
Beautiful decorations. The pages/paper are
clean with some occasional foxing. No writing. Some occasional light toning and smaller age
This is an
attractive pre-civil war
