I was completely surprised one day when my mom pulled this out and gave it to me. Surprised because of how beautiful the binding is, and of the fact that it had been in our family all of my life, and yet I had never seen it as a youth. The interior sympathy card is that of my Great-great grandfather. Although the picture does not show well -- this is a mammoth bible. It is listed as being produced by J.S. Roberstson and Brothers Whitby Ontario. Original Gust Dore engravings within as well as many others. A date of 1875 is listed on an engraving but I think the Bible itself is from around 1890. It is a work of art in its own right.
