HOLY BIBLE, published by D & G BRUCE, printed and sold by A. PAUL, 72 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK in 1823. The binding is good and has not come apart, leather cover is quite thick and intact with the exception of a tear at the top left side of the spine leather and a crack in the bottom left spine leather. This does not affect the magnificence of this book. The pages are delicate, worn at the edges and this bible has all of the pages. It measures 4 1/2 by 7 1/4 inches, and has ALL of its 837 pages.
