The numerous pictures are beautifully intertwined with the text and also appear as vibrant illustrations on full pages. Some are printed in black and white, others in colour, and quite a few are protected with the original tissue paper covers.

This Antique Bible is generally in very good condition. Many of the illustrations are suitable for framing and will offer the reader countless years of viewing pleasure!

The binding is intact, the clasps are in working condition, and overall the Bible has clean and smooth pages. T are many flaws, however, some of which can be seen in the photos below. These include but may not be limited to: some pages have tears, chipping, toning, foxing, or staining; at least one page is detached from the binding; and the spine is damaged (see photo).

While several family pages to record births, marriages, and deaths contain writing, others remain blank, including a beautiful Temperance Pledge page and the Presentation page. The front and back covers retain most of their original gold illustrations, and the page ends have retained most of their gold leafing, suggesting that this Bible was very well cared for.
