     1864 Beautifully decorated and illustrated Family Bible with unmarked family pages and closing clasp
Size: 12" x 10" x 4"
William W Harding, Philadelphia
VERY GOOD condition
Bible is SOLD
A beautiful (pre-civil war) illustrated Antique 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 Apocryphal book.
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. 
Great binding. Beautiful  decorations. The pages/paper are clean with some occasional foxing. No writing. Some occasional light toning and smaller age related damages.
This is an attractive pre-civil war family Bible!
