My thanks to the proprietor who allowed me to photograph this Bible and the Moggridge Bible.
The Bible is about 8 by 14 inches or slightly larger, and is about three inches thick. I didn't record how many pages.
The inscription is written in blue ink on a blank right-hand page before the title page.

The title page reads:
                                 THE

                              HOLY BIBLE

                            CONTAINING THE

                        OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS

            TRANSLATIONS DILIGENTLY COMPARED AND REVISED,
