An amazing complete and comprehensive Salesman Family Bible Sampler as used by salesmen/agents for B.F. Johnson & Co in Richmond (A.J. Holman was the actual printer of most large family Bibles of those days having many other companies/representatives selling their Bibles under other publisher's name as well) dating from 1880ies.
This Salesman Bible Sampler offers examples of 11 different styles for the English language 'New Standard Family Bible' ranging in pricing from $3.50 for the "Arabesque Panel" version (No. 0) through $22.00 for the "Parallel German Morocco" version (No. 11). Examples of contents, covers and spines are all included in this VERY extensive sampler.  Just about all of the special 'pink' and 'yellow' slips with instructions/information for the salesman are still included. 

 The binding is sound (as always handle with care). This Sampler is complete, even almost all of the salesman instruction slips/notes are still present and attached. Some, but limited writing. Preserved gold embossing on the edges of the covers. There is some wear to the edges of the covers and areas on the leather. See the many pictures.
An amazing piece of Bible history.
