This is really a gorgeous Family Bible dated 1890. The Bible has several illustrations and has many full color pages as well. Many bible collctors love these bibles as they can sell the illustrations seperately. This is a very large Bible. The binding is in ruff condition but is still attached to some extent. The clasps are in good condition and all the pages are great shape given there age. The Bible has very beautifully styled covers. Gold letter Leafing is still visible along with a highly decorative Cross. The Bible measures approximately 10 by 12 inches and approximately 5 inches thick. The Bible has over 1500 pages. There is so much information within; it's a study Bible as well. The first page reads "The Pronouncing Edition of the Holy Bible containing the Authorized and Revised Versions of the Old and New Testaments, Arranged in Parallel Columns, giving the correct pronunciation of every proper name contained in the Bible, by Prof. S. W. Williams Complete Concordance margional references, chronoligical tables, a history of ancient Biblical manuscripts, with fac-similes of the same; the earliest printed editions of the Bible; a history of the revision of the Bible, Etc." The Bible was printed by A.J. Conroy & Co. Cincinnati, Ohio/Conroy Bros. St. Louis, Mo. I have noticed some writing on the pages marked births, deaths and marriages. There is a lock of hair between two of the pages. Hair is wrapped in lace.
