It contains MANY attractive and well preserved  lithographs of original paintings from the classic masters, plus a serious of stunning color engravings and colored maps. The Bible (King James version) itself contains an extensive on-page Rev.

"Brown's Self-Interpreting Family Bible: containing the Old and New Testaments; to which are annexed an extensive introduction; marginal references and illustrations; an exact summary of the several books, a paraphrase on the most obscure or important parts; explanatory notes; evangelical reflections etc etc, by the late Rev. John Brown ... with many additional References and Numerous Illustrations"
Apart from the Old and New Testament, there is a (all unmarked) section for family registry and pictures, an extensive introduction,  and a number of tables and indexes with a complete concordance.
This Bible is in a VERY GOOD and nicely restored condition. The Bible's binding, spine and cover are beautifully and in good restored condition (you can use this Bible on a daily basis). Bible is complete, no writings, no tears.  Clean pages - some typical foxing. Restored  family pages
