*A WORD FROM THE CONSERVATOR*

This Bible has undergone a page by page comprehensive paper conservation leaving  no condition concerns or further actions required . Many newer collectors often call into question the authenticity of our Bibles because of their outstanding , fine condition. As with any item of age, value is determined according to condition-condition-condition ! This ancient 18th century treasure is NOT a replica, reproduction, facsimile, reprint or forgery. The fine art of hand bookbinding is alive and well.

We strive hard to acquire only those Bibles which we would like to collect ourselves, perform any needed restoration work professionally to archival standards and present them to you free from concerns. There has been much discussion regarding the addition of this volume to our permanent collection !

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A TRUE MUSEUM PIECE!
