When one thinks of all the destruction of so much beauty and elegance during the French Revolution suddenly we see a miracle survival; the Bible given to the Dauphin de Viennois by his father King Louis XVI. I am amazed that survived so much destruction ; miracles do happen.

This is a unique find, though, it appears to be in excellent condition. That leads me to believe that it wasn't opened very often.
