Antique 1869 Victorian Large Illustrated HOLY BIBLE Good Binding NY+10 Tintypes
For sale is a copy of large sized antique American illustrated HOLY BIBLE with a family album of 10 tintypes and one Baby cabinet card. It is printed in the year of 1869 by the New York publisher HS Goodspeed Co. There are 208 Illustrations as either full page steel plate or in-text wood prints! I only have the space to upload a few of the illustrated pages but there are many many more scattered throughout and all of them are very well done! Another rare feature of this Bible is that it includes a family photo album at the back. There are 10 tintype photos of various sizes included in the photo slots. I assume these are the people who are the ancestors of this Bible copy. There is also a cabinet card with a baby in his or her baptism gown at the very first page. Other than these photos, the family record pages are empty and unused. The Bible is large in dimension, 12 by 10 for the cover size, roughly 3 thick. It weighs more than 9 lbs!! The front and back cover are both full tooled leather with golden gilded decoration. The covers are in great antique condition. Age appropriate surface wear is to be expected (see picture 1 & 2). The binding is tight and strong. No separation or tears. These used to be a metal clip, but it is no longer present. There is also one small puncture in the leather spine. All internal pages appear to be complete. There are some age related occasional foxing, yellowing, staining commensurate with age, but it is a relatively clean copy. No water stains or odor. Please check all photos for detailed condition. All in all, this is a rare 19th Century Victorian era American religious text ready to be added to your antique bible collection.
