About This Item

The British And Foreign Bible Society. Like New. 1272ppp, 8 pages of colour maps at the rear. 1908. 8vo. sized. A very well preserved near fine copy in original publisher's card presentation/protection box. The very scarce cardboard box is significantly faded, notably rubbed, split in a few places (notably to one corner, which is now loose) but still has the now worn original paper label to one end. The details are: The number '1368 Small Pica 8vo CR. Bible Persian G.R. Limp. British and foreign Bible Society'. A later owner has written 'Holy Bible' Bound in pebbled black limp leather - gilt embossed to the spine with 5 shallow-raised bands. All edges gilt (and still very bright). Gilt detailing to the inside of both front and rear covers. Black endpapers. No inscriptions. The slightest of rubbing to the head of the rear 'board' by the joint; one or two other slight rub marks elsewhere of almost no consequence. Probably (if it came with one as it probably did) missing the ribbon page divider. A reading 'crease' or more like a vertical furrow mark to the spine. A lovely King James Bible with very readable large print and its original cardboard box.
