This is a very beautiful and very rare bible. I beleive it was published in 1873 because it says Entered according to the act of Congress in the year 1873. With the exception of a little wear on the outside cover the binding and engravings are in excellent condition. The book measures 11 inches wide by 12 1/2 inches tall and almost 4 inches thick.
This is what is written in the inside on one of the inside pages
