Uninscribed, but this is the size, style, and era of pocket Bibles produced by the American Bible Society for distribution by the Chaplains of the Christian Commission among soldiers. Perhaps uncirculated, it is in an unusually good state of preservation.

Blind embossed cloth with gold lettering; some fading, light foxing at foredges. Very crisp and sound. Prelims are unusually crisp and blank.
