    An interesting find!

    It is possible to restore it, as I've re-attached/replaced boards (covers) before, but it would likely not be worth it monetarily. To do it yourself would require much time and research (to do it safely so as to not have it damage the Book or deteriorate down the road.)

    The Bible was the first Book (really a series) printed on a machine, and it has remained the Best Seller since.

    Any engravings in it?
