Gaelic Bible : Leabhraichean an T-Seann Tiomnaidh Air an Tarruing o 'n Cheud Chanain Chum Gaelic Albannaich
Scotland
Edinburgh Bible Society
1837


Leather
Very Good





Full leather, printed 1837 by Anderson & Bryce for the Edinburgh Bible Society. Contains both the Old and New Testaments, along with the psalms. Brown leather, 5 raised bands on spine, design of the Edinburgh Bible society blindstamped on front and back. Some scribbles on endpapers, on the top of page 589, light foxing but generally quite clean, clear and completely legible. The leather is a little scuffed and rubbed with the start of some flaking on spine, but again, still quite good condition. Hinges are surprisingly strong, as is the binding in general. Slight outer bowing of covers, corresponding to some swelling of the pages towards the foredges.
