I know nothing about old books rare or otherwise. There is another seller selling the exact same book so I got the info for the description from that listing. "The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments, Translated Out of the Original Tongues, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised. Stereotype Edition. This is an extremely rare copy of the first stereotyped Bible printed in the United States. The plates were prepared in London and they arrived in October of 1812. The US Government allowed them to enter duty free & the initial print run was only 1050 Bibles, one of which is right here! "
My bible's condition is that it is inscribed from a father to his daughter in 1858. The cover has scuffs and a portion of the leather is off on the back cover. It does retain a portion of the title on the spine. All pages are solidly attached. The pages are subtle and not brittle. There are some pages that are dog eared. There is an 1896 prayer card in the book as well as a pressed flower inside. It is an awesome example from my amateur observations. I have no attachments nor sense of value so I will let the Ebay community set the price.
