What does this mean?

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for choosing Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented item is a beautifully illustrated Parallel Holy Bible, containing 2000 scripture illustrations with original closing clasp and padded leather covers, which are elaborately decorated with deep embossed leather, gilt lettering/decoration. This bible was published by Conray & Crotty, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1892.

The condition looks good overall. However, the covers show edge wear and are scuffed in places, but gilt titles are clear, and raised decorations are OK. The binding seems intact.

For your information, the estimate highlighted in red above is based on comparables offered and sold at auction over the last five years.

Best regards,

Karine
