This Bible is in a VERY GOOD condition. The Bible's binding, spine and cover are holding well and this Bible can be used daily (with care as always). Complete Bible. Splitting of the leather on the cover spine, not affecting the binding. Typical wear and discoloring for its age. Some minor scruffs and smaller damages to the covers and spine. Original unmarked marriage certificate and family pages. Original closing clasp.
