In a beautiful fine full polished calf leather binding, here is an antique copy of The Treasury of Bible Knowledge, Being a Dictionary of The Books, Persons, Places, Events and Other Matters of Which Mention is Made in Holy Scripture by Rev. John Ayre. Published in 1875 by Longmans, Green & Co. With marbled endpapers and page edges. This is a really lovely antique book in excellent condition.

PLEASE NOTE: the title and contents pages state that this copy has engravings and maps, however, this new edition was not bound with those in but there are extensive illustrations in the text (see photos).

Inside the pages are clean and very tightly bound. Has some tanning and spotting to the endpapers where there is also an elegantly-inked inscription dated 1877.

In a dark green polished calf binding with a gilt tooled border and gilt dentelles to the outer edges. The boards have some scuffs to the leather. With an eye-catching decorative spine which has five raised bands, ornate gilt decoration in each compartment and leather title and author plates. All in top order with the gilt being sparkly bright.

Your antique copy of The Treasury of Bible Knowledge will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 17 cm x W 11.5 cm, 943 pages, 0.72 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (With the exception of a small number of countries which I am unable to ship to.)

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
