This Antique late Victorian very large leather and brass bound Reverend John Brown Holy Bible is in a well used condition. Its spine and cover are damaged as shown. The clasps still close and hold the Bible closed. The self-interpreting bible is well illustrated with etching and prints. It is embellished with gold blocking to the front "Glorious Gospel Of The Blessed God" which is also repeated on its back cover but is not gold blocked. The hard covers are embossed. I cannot find any date marks anywhere, but it points to being late Victorian as these are date in the history of The Reverend John Brown section showing 1866.
The Bible measures 13 1/2" x 10 1/2" - 34.5 x 26.5 cm. It is of substantial weight - 5kg.
