This is a great plate book. This book was published in two parts: the first dealing with the Old Testament, the second dealing with the New Testament. Here we offer the second part illustrating key locations in the New Testament. The engraved map of Palestine at the front (often lacking in these) is present here though there is a large closed tear. The remainder of the book contains 43 (of 44) finely engraved plates. Foxing is about average throughout with only a few plates heavily foxed, most quite clean with only moderate to no foxing, and some in pristine condition, tissue guards still present. The missing illustration is of Sarycuse and appears never ot have been bound into this copy (which is not highly unusual). The first blank and map (attached) are detached (probably done to allow the map to be opened more easily), but otherwise the book is well bound and intact. The binding is split at the gutters inside, front board pulled exposing spine, lower portion of outer spine loose, edgewear. Overall, an about average copy of a nice plate book. These books are very difficult to find.
