This is a large book 12 1/2" x 10", of 188 pages, published by Cassell & Co in 1884....it is described as being.....SCRIPTURE STORIES IN PICTURES. Every page has either full page engravings or a montage of engravings...the quality and detail is brilliant. It should be noted that these are actual WOOD CUT ENGRAVINGS....NOT printed copies of the engravings. The boards are a bit faded with minor marks / stains and the covers are loose from the pages....this could easily be rectified by gluing back to the spine. The interior pages are still very white and clean with just very minor spots or stains. A wonderful old rare book ...easily restored or also ideal for breaking-up and framing the many plates if desired.
