This huge American family Bible was published by Holman of Philadelphia in 1875; there’s a lot of reference material and illustrations including many by Gustave DorĂ©. The binding is held shut by a brass clasp.

There is also a version of this photograph with just the Bible on a black background for stock use.

The Bible says “William H Bunting” on the front cover; presumably that’s the name of the purchaser.
