4to. in 8s, mostly black letter, double column. Bible and New Testament title pages within ornate woodcut figurative borders, part title page to Genealogies within typographical border, extensive woodcuts and double-page map to Genealogies, woodcut ornaments. First title page (Genealogies) a bit dusty, light water stain to upper inner part of same leaf, a few splashes and marks. One lower outer corner torn, with loss to printed frame only. A good clean copy in contemporary blind stamped calf, in a somewhat archaic design, six of eight brass corner-pieces, both central brass bosses present, lacking clasps, re-backed.
