What does this mean?

Dear Elba,

The presented object appears to be a leather-covered bible with brass fitting printed in Germantown in the year 1763 by Christoph Saur. Of the overall 1200 copies of the bible originally printed by Christoph Sauer, fewer than 150 are thought to have survived, and many of those are in very bad condition.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market. 
This piece is in bad to medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 1.000 to 2.000 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
