Exceptional Items










Unconditionally guaranteed. Exceptional Bible Leaves, not in other categories.
These Bible leaves or leaf-sets are usually very rare, one-of-a-kind, or in limited numbers. They come in museum-quality Portfolios (Bi-fold, Tri-fold, or Super-), or in Bi-fold Archival Booklets, all handmade of highest quality materials. In general, these leaves are too expensive to have in any sizable quantity and are the "best of the best." Occasionally, a leaf may be archivally framed in exotic woods or in other framing formats. In nearly all cases, the leaf or leaf-set is of very high theological value deserving these special preservation formats. See Item Descriptions for full details.
