This depiction of the earth and heavens is from "Mitchell's New Primary Geography" published in 1890.
I thought it was the perfect illustration of the scripture from Psalm 2'1:1, "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it". Interested in other old etchings? We have a bunch! Just ask! This is available in KJV, NKJV,NIV and ESV.
The hide has gone through the "vegetable" tanning process, the compounds used to treat it come straight from plants (typically tree bark). After I burn the design into the surface, I apply the dye in layers to give it the beautiful "antiqued" look. Because the dye is applied by hand and each
piece of leather has a unique grain which accepts the dye in its own individual way, each piece is a one of a kind. It is also treated with a leather balm which has just a touch of wax. This adds no additional color but seals and protects it as well as giving it that polished look and 'pleasant to the touch' feel. This cover will protect the bible within for generations to come. Names can be added in lower right corner for no additional charge.
