Here for sale is a fantastic antique 'The life of Christ' by Rev John Fleetwood. It is published in 1873 by Blackie & sons. The fine leather blinding is embossed with a stunning gilt border and  letters to spine. Over 250 wonderful black and white illustrations of Christ throughout. Of these there are 33 highly finished engravings on steel. 

There is a owners plate to front for' John and Jan Booner, Scopwick 1875'.

A fabulous book perfect for any collector or as a gift.


Wear to leather in places where black colour is missing. Foxing to pages and scuffing to corners. The spine at the top and bottom is slightly split. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
