If you are going to buy one of these Victorian Bibles be careful since the heavy front boards are often in a fragile state and prone to detaching. This particular Bible has a very firmly attached cover, is in above average condition and being offered at below average price.

Condition. The binding is good and firm, just one small repair at the base of the spine. All the binding cords are strong and the boards held tightly. The brass clasps are in good condition and work well; the front brasswork needs a clean. The text block is solid and even. A few foxing spots mostly on the edges of some pages but the pages are generally crisp, clean and bright. Lovely old Bible, ideal for family use and should be good for another 100 years.A nice Bible offered at a very reasonable price with the bonus of Doré's wonderful images.
