Amazing and beautiful set of 10 volumes telling 'The Bible and it's Story - Taught by Picture Lessons'. Each book is illustrated with wonderful Bible story scenes, and each illustration has a tissue cover page with a short description of the work/scene. These pictures are derived from great artists and include such works as Michelangelo's Ceiling Paintings, as well as other well known and not so well known artists: Julius Schnorr, Charles Baron de Steuben, Rubens, Gustave Doré, Edward Armitage, De Bar, Alexander Cabanel, Horst, Salvatore Rosa, Edward von Gebhardt, Pedro de Moya, Jacobi Carrucci and many others. They cover all of the books of the Bible, old and new testament. Each book has about 192 pages (not counting the illustrations), the total set has 1926 pages (plus an estimated 700+ full page engravings/photo's) and the back of the last has a study section that is separate in the numbering of the pages. The covers and spine are dark green in color (cloth) with gold printed titles and the edges of the pages are gold gilt. Each volume opens with a beautiful frontispiece.
There are no missing pages, stains, pencil marks or other markings on any of the pages. The bindings are solid and tight. The covers are undamaged and just some very slight wear. Some wear to the spines.. A VERY HANDSOME and special Bible set.
