The Leaves are Overall Very Good and Crisp With Some Toning Commensurate With Use and Age Esp to Margins (One Leaf in Rev. is Heavily Age Marked.)
 The Text is Distinctive Black Letter. Large, Clear and Readable. The Text Block is Very Good and Firm Though the Signatures are a little uneven. Small worm trail affects thirty inner margin leaves of OT section. The Margins Are Wide and Generous (Apart From a Couple Which have Been Lightly Trimmed.)

  The Original Dark Tan Tooled Calf Binding Has Been Recently Rebound with New End Papers Added. A Couple of Missing Small Pieces of Leather and Edge Cracks Have Been Neatly Repaired. Original Working Clasps Present !!!
  A BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC YET USABLE BIBLE. FEELS AMAZING to HANDLE
