The front and back cover are both full tooled leather and in good shape common age related sign of rubbing is present, especially at the corners. The leather cover is tight and has no visible cracks where the covers meet the spine. Such an excellent preservation state is rare to find for old bibles. All pages are complete, a small portion of the pages at the back is slightly loose, but not separated.
There are some foxing, yellowing, staining in this copy commensurate with age. But It is relatively clean and undamaged by water or dampness. Brass clasp open and close properly.
