D., Binding is 3/4 Leather. 1875 Johnson New York Edition, . Bible is in very good condition. 8vo (approx. 7 1/2 inches to 9 1/2 inches tall) and 3 inches thick. Binding is separating in front and back but is still intact. A very fine edition. Clean copy, all pages intact, some browning due to age, but nice clean engravings which are covered by onion skin. Some rubbing to cover and corners. In my opinion, very minor for a Bible that is 180 years old. Illustrated by steel plate maps, and Engravings. 3/4 brown leather w/gilt lettering;decs; all edges gilt; 1159 pages, plus 8 Family Record pages (not filled in) and 32 pages of Testimonials and Press opinions on this Bible.
