An amazingly illustrated volume containing the complete Bible text with various tables and introductions as well as maps and illustrations.

Starts with engraved title page with table of books on the verso. Next Preface, Introduction and Index followed the complete Bible text. Ending with an Index Epistolarum and an Index Biblicus. Bound with 2 double sided fold-out maps (one in front of the Old Testament and in front of the New Testament). MANY (about 1/3 page) scripture illustrations throughout the Bible. Decorated first chapter initials.

Condition: VERY GOOD: The binding is excellent and is in daily useable condition (has been very professionally restored and rebound in new leather). A little toned/dust soiled and with some sporadic light creases, spots or smudges, patchy browning at a few points and a few leaves with minor nicks or chips to edges but largely in good condition and the leaves quite crisp. Exquisite and detailed illustrations!
A beautifully illustrated very early Bible!
