This is a 180-page micro-mini Bible (actually, the Four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke & John). Printed by, Gernat's of Chicago, Ill.
It is not much bigger than a fifty-cent piece.
It measures 1.12 inches x 1.47 inches x 0.23 inches thick.

What are miniature books?
Miniature books are books that are no larger than 3” in any measurement, although the Library of Congress classifies miniature books as books less than 4” in any measurement. There are 4 different categories of miniature books, which include the “macro-mini”, or a book between 3” and 4” tall; the “miniature”, a book between 2” and 3” tall; the “micro-mini”, a book between 1” and 2” tall; and the “ultra-micro-mini”, or a book smaller than 1” in all measurements. Very few Americans collect “ultra-micro-minis”, building their collection out of the “micro-mini” and “miniature” books available. American publishers also devote little time to the creation of “ultra-micro-mini” texts.

Thanks for looking,
Dave
