Antique ( 1870 's) Large Leather Bound Holy Bible NATIONAL PUBLISHING CO.S SUPERFINE EDITION - NEW DEVOTIONAL AND PRACTICAL PICTORIAL FAMILY BIBLE . The cover page reads "CONTAINING THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS TOGETHER ABRIDGED EDITION OF Dr. WM Smith's complete dictionary of the Bible and history of all the religious denominations of the world, history of the translation of the Bible. An illustrated history of all the books of the bible, chronological and other useful tables, treatises, maps, Etc. Designed to promote and facilitate the study of the sacred scriptures. Embellished with over 1000 Fine Scriptures Illustrations. Published by The National Publishing Co. and Jones Brothers and Co. ". This bible measures 12" x 10" x 4". The leather cover is embossed with gold detail design on front cover, spine, and back cover. The outer condition has quite a bit of wear to edges, cover and back cover. The spine cover is delicate - not completely detached but detached on one side (fixable but I would say should be properly done and I will leave that to the next owner of this fine piece). The pages are in great shape for a large bible of it's age ( approx 140 YEARS OLD ). Pages are present and in very good shape. There is a page near the end of the Bible that is loose. There are many beautiful full page engravings and many illustrations. There is a section in the rear of the bible where family photos could have been placed in. There are a few slips of paper that were used to mark favorite scriptures by the person / family who once owned and cherished this Bible (I will leave these in as they were special to someone). A fine piece of Biblical history. A wonderful gift or addition to your Library.
