Title page reads: The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments; Translated out of the original tongues, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. Published by the American Bible Society (ABS) New York. They distributed Bibles to soldiers on both sides during the war.
Brown leather cover with tab closure. In our opinion, very good condition considering its age & use.Small tear starting to form at the flap fold on back cover. Many names written inside the covers, both front & back. This was passed down a lot! Also, the very last page was cut out, which would have included Revelation chapter 22 verses 2 through 21 (end). We don't see any writing in the text or other missing pages, but because the book is fragile we've not inspected every page.
Please see all photos & consider them part of the description. Just pick what's best for you.
