Hi,
Thank You for your question, my name is***** am a verified expert and will be working with you today. In the 19th century the Bible was the most common published book. I have seen several German Bibles published in 1866. Here is an example of one that is very similar to your Bible being sold on ebay.

As you can see it has basically the same carved leather cover as well. The value of these Bibles are mostly based on condition. With an average one selling for $50-75 to a mint condition selling for $200.
Thank you,
Wayne
