The New Testament Of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" was translated from the original Greek. Measuring 3 3/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches, it was published by S Andrus and Son in 1845. This miniature bible has gilded page edges and lithographed engravings throughout. The little hard cover New Testament has green cloth boards with a gilt decoration on the cover and spine. It is 454 pages in length and is in very good vintage condition, especially considering its age. There is mild yellowing of the paper, some bumping and light fraying on the cover's corners and a small tear of the fabric at the bottom of the spine (see photos). The first fly leaf has an inscription written in pen and one of the illustrated pages has a brown spot (see photos). The binding is tight and the pages are otherwise clean.
A wonderful first communion gift or to add to your collection.
