To Which are Added, A Chronological Index, And Index of the Subjects Contained in the Old and New Testaments, Tables of Weights, Coins, Measures, A List of Proper Names, A Concordance, &c. Embellished with Sixteen Hundred Historical Engravings by J. A. Adams, More Than Fourteen Hundred of Which Are From Original Designs by J. G. Chapman." Some names are written in the appropriate pages (marriages, births and deaths) with the earliest date being 1843. The names are Godfrey, Atwater and Haywood. There is light foxing throughout, with heavier foxing at frontispieces, protective tissues, title pages and front and rear blanks. The endpapers are heavily discolored, with the front free endpaper and the ensuing several pages also waterstained at the fore edges. The front free endpaper and the preliminaries are all disbound and a bit ragged at the edges. The pages in general are tightly bound and but for the bit of foxing, clean. The binding is in very poor condition, with the front board all but disbound (held by a bit of leather), the rear hinge opened, and the leather very heavily worn and scuffed, with some loss at spine ends. The gilt decoration is still quite bright. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 005065
