This octavo sized Bible is in
an VERY GOOD condition. Plain leather boards
(original?) with just some minor scuffing. Spine with text: "Holy
Bible". The binding makes for a solid and very useable
book that can be used and read (with care) on a daily basis. Very few writings (few
minor scribbles from previous owners), no tears (some rough edges at
the end of the Bible), clean pages. A special 350 year old
Bible for any collection or daily use!
