1. The story of Abraham and Isaac is told in Genesis 22:
Note that Isaac’s mother apparently was 90 years old and Abraham apparently was 99 when their son Isaac was born. According to Genesis 22, as Abraham prepares to sacrifice his son Isaac, the angel of the Lord called out to him “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God because you have not withheld your son, your only son.”
2. Several very minor repairs. Signs of wear in upper corners but overall an outstanding impression of this major work.
