The back cover is a mirror image of the front cover with gilt embellishments on the raised panels though with stamped titling in center cameo.  Gilt dentilles on the edges of the covers. 2 beautifully tooled locking Nickel clasps, in fine working order, secure the Bible closed when not in use.  There are 5 very prominently raised bands on the spine and even more pronounced raised buttresses at the top & bottom of the spine, with gilt dentilles decorating each buttress. Gilt titling in the second spine compartment and elaborate gilt decorations filling the remaining 5 spine compartments. This lovely Holy Bible has obviously been very well cared for and loved in its 131 years, proven by its very moderate wear with light bumps to the corners, intermittent scuffing along the edges with some loss of gilt dentilles, light scuffing and rubs on the cover faces. Bumps to the top & bottom of the spine with some minor loss of spine leather at the far right top edge of the spine. Please carefully study our many excellent photos so that you can fully appreciate the beauty of this Holy Bible and understand its full condition. All sides and edges are clearly shown in our photos. There are no bookplates, No signatures, No marks in this Bible.
