This large thick Bible is bound in brown cloth boards and has a hubbed spine. Page edges are gilt. 1440 pages.Covers and spine hubs show wear. Gilt page edges are attractive marred very little. Binding is quite solid, unusual for a 19th century Bible. The frontispiece and the half title page are both quite foxed, but the remainder of the book is not. Inside the front cover is the name Henry McIver. McIver served in the Civil War under Wade Hampton. He was a SC Supreme Court justice from 1877 to 1891 and then he was Chief Justice of the SC Supreme Court until 1903. Between the Old and New Testaments there is a substantial amount of genealogical information. This is quite a nice old Bible with some history.
