1888 The Beautiful Story/Golden Gems of Religious Thought EXC+
Beautiful large book published in 1888. It is in very good condition with bumps and wear to binding edges. Alot of gold and silver gilt on book cover remain. Pages are in very good condition overall with many full page pictures, mostly in black and white. Fabulous religious book with 250 engravings by Bida, Dore, and others. Several full page color lithographs. This book was given to a Docter Fitts and the inscription is on the second page. Also inside the book I found a handwritten receipt from the doctor for a tuition payment. It is dated 1894. On the first 20 or so pages t is a little bit of damage to the lower right corner of each page. Looks like maybe an insect got into the book. But it does not affect the written words. All but 4 pages are indexes. According to the title page this book is a companion book to the "Holy Bible". Written and edited by: J.W. Buel 544 pages Historical Publishing Co. Philadelphia, PA & Toronto, Canada Measures: 8" x 10 1/2"
