They are all in great condition. They are the new and old testament read by Alexander Scourby. Alexander Scourby was the first person to make a complete recording of the Bible. He originally narrated the King James Version for The American Foundation For The Blind over four years, finishing in 1944. Their original goal was to produce a clean, clear recording for visually impaired listeners. The American Bible Society distributed it as The Talking Bible, a set of 169 records with a running time of 84.5 hours. This recording was eventually released to the general public in 1966 and became a best-seller. It is now part of the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry. This was all I was able to find about the history of these records. The records have brail on the back and writing in the midle on the front. They are in their origonal boxes and sleves. They are meant to be played at 16 and 2/3 RPM.
