A well preserved and attractively (color) illustrated  Roman Catholic antique family Bible with an exquisite gold decorated cover which consists of leather covered boards embossed, a (gold gilt) cross and brass corner pieces and clasps. Gold gilt pages and original, fully functional closing clasps. On the leather spine in gold letter the text "Holy Bible" is written. The text of this Bible is the so called Douay-Rheims Bible (or Doway Rheims Bible or D-R Bible), which is an English translation from the Latin Vulgate ("the Holy Bible according to the Douay and Rheimish Versions ... Useful Notes ... by the Rev Geo Leo Haydock"). The text covers the complete Old and New Testament as well as the books that are often referred to as the Apocrypha. Includes Approbations by various American Bishops and Cardinals.
To support the study of this Bible there is a very extensive (Haydock) commentary with the Bible text. Also numerous (color) plates and an unmarked all original section to record family history records.
 This Bible is in a VERY GOOD and DAILY USABLE condition. The Bible's binding, spine and covers are in a good condition and this Bible can be used (with care as always) on a daily basis.  Pages overall clean with some occasional age related discoloring etc. Original blank Family pages. Overall this Bible has been nicely preserved. See the many pictures.
