The Bible Class Text Book; or Biblical Catechism Containing Questions Historical, Doctrinal, Practical, and Experimental, Designed to Promote an Intimate Acquaintance with the Inspired Volume, by Hervey Wilbur.
13th edition published 1823, Boston by Cummings & Hilliard.
132 pages. Text in English.
Attractive period antiquarian 1/4 leather binding, smooth spine, marbled covers.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Endpapers used for writing long ago (based on endpaper use, likely written by a left handed penman).
Binding gently rubbed and age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but leather still supple, book remains overall very attractive as an object. A nice example which displays a particularly pleasing and unique patina ("glow") from almost 200 years of use and handling.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly tight and sound, scattered age stains, never offensive. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this appealing small American religious instructional book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
