There are pages for entering information for a Marriage Certificate, Marriages, Births, Deaths and Memoranda as well as four album pages which are comprised of two double sided album pages with places for two cabinet card photos and eight CDV size photos. There is one cabinet portrait photo of a man on the first of the album pages. He is not identified. There is no writing on any of the pages for family information or on the album pages or anywhere else in the Bible. There is a foldout page that has two scenes in color: one of Jerusalem from the Golden Gate and the other of Mount Zion. The paper of the front hinge shows a bit of cracking that can be seen between the front flyleaf and the next page but the cover is well attached. The gilt letters on the spine show some wear. The pages have light age toning. In the closed position the gilt of the page edges shows light wear on the bottom, lighter wear on the sides, and very little wear on the top. When the book is in an open position, the side edges reveal a water stain mark that is irregular in shape about 1 1/2 inches down from the top edge. The water stain is about 2 1/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inches in depth. It is not visible when the book is closed. On the interior page edges within that area of the water stain, it is visible as a thin line of browning along the interior edges varying from 1/16 inch or less on most of those pages to no more than 3/16 inch. This is shown in accompanying photos. There are only tiny minor nicks, a very occasional small brown mark or smudge, and small corner bends to a very few pages. There is a break in the bottom strip of paper that would have held in a cabinet photo on one of the album pages. This item is inventory #9838. Is an estimate and the actual cost may differ.
