2 THE HOLY BIBLE CONTAINING THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS, TRANSLATED OUT OF THE ORIGINAL TONGUES; AND WITH THE FORMER TRANSLATIONS DILIGENTLY COMPARED AND REVISED.
New York, NY American Bible Society 1850 Hardcover 
This is a bible published in 1850 and bound in wrap around leather with an extension of leather that can be slipped under a strap to hold the cover securely. The book has been well cared for - there is no wear to the handsome leather which is without decornation, but with a title on the spine on gilt - Holy Bible. There is nly minor wear to the rear end paper and the interior is clean, but about 15 pages of the 805 pages (of the Old Testament) and 250 pages (of the New Testament) have been turned to mark a place or slightly bumped. One page in Genesis has a tiny pencil note. The pages have only a few foxing spots - nearly alll the pages are very clean and crisp. The page edges are gilt with a little scuffing, The front end paper has a small faint former owner note and date of 1853. The rear end paper is missing a portion of the paper and there is a touch of stain as if from the glue used in binding. The font is very small. The book is 5 3/4 " tall and 3 1/2" wide, plus 1 3/4" thick. The key feature of this book is the near fine condition of the leather. And perhaps there is interest to a family with an Ohio heritage - on two pages between the Old and New there are two pages for Family Records - five names (Clark and Colby) have been clearnly written with dates - all in the local of Ashtabula Co. Ohio. There is a separate title page for the New Testament as follows: The New Testament of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, translated out of The Original Greek and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. Also dated 1850. There is a very delicate fabric page marker laying between two pages - separated from the binding.; 12mo; 1055 pages
