Antiquarian Book?

I quite enjoy old books. There is much that has not yet been reprinted, and there’s something about leather bindings that appeals. On a recent journey to T K Maxx here in Edinburgh I ran across what looked like an old book. Here it is mingled with some others in our living room.

What is so fantastic about this particular book, is that it is not a book. Here are a few close-ups of it:

Pretty nice for T K Maxx. Though, upon closer inspection you realise that this is no ordinary book, it is a safe book. Years ago I bought an old massive Bible Illustrations book for a fiver (with a lovely leather binding) with the intention of gutting it and making my own book safe. I still have the book and hope to get around to doing that, but in the mean time this surprising find will have to do.
