With Upwards of Two Hundred Original Illustrations. 4to. viii, 566pp (Old Testament) plus 256pp (New Testament) plus plates. Black leather with brass corners and two brass clasps to lower board with brass catches to upper boards. All edge gilt. Gilt decoration and titles to front and spine. Ink dedications to front flyleaf. (6th January 1884 to Ernest Henry Macandrew from his affectionate godfather on his seventh birthday. Then from the recipient to his godson on 27th September 1922.). Over two hundred black & white engravings (many full page) together with vignettes within the text and decorated initials. Good. Evidence for some rebinding work at some stage (small ticket from Wm Whiteley Ltd, Bookbinder to final page). A little rubbing to boards and spine. Brass corners & clasps slightly tarnished. Crack to gutter at front hinge which is weakening but still pretty sound. A little spotting to prelims and finals but otherwise very clean internally. Occasional light corner crease.
