Laing's modern hieroglyphic Bible printed in color, divided into "Old Testament Stories" and "New Testament Stories." Each section has a full-page color title page, and the near-miniature leaves of the Bible are mounted, with four on each page. Bound in tan buckram stamped with the title in gilt and a pictorial border in black. Some faint, scattered foxing to contents and fore-edge, edges of boards show some light soiling, corners and spine ends slightly bumped, else a fine copy with the original blue cloth printed dust wrapper.

From Wilhelm Wundt, known as the "father of experimental psychology," who established psychology as a separate science and founded one of the first formal laboratories for psychological research (at the University of Leipzig).
