An absolute charmer and a rare survivor, the present Bible was issued by the British and Foreign Bible Society and distributed at discount rates for the use of Sunday Schools, and thus boldly block embossed on the front cover. 

I don't recall ever having handled one that is quite so stereotypically beautiful and well-preserved. The perfect display for a history of Sabbath and Sunday Schools, Bible Distribution, or Innovative Bindings. 

[British & Foreign Bible Society]. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated Out of the Original Tongues; and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, etc. London. George Ayre and Andrew Strahan for the British and Foreign Bible Society. 1829. 12mo.

Good + to very good in original calf, some rubbing, just through at extremities. One spot of perhaps adhesive on front board. Original block embossing in a beautiful state of preservation. Text block solid with some handling and turned corners as well as minor sporadic foxing.
