Banks Bible

The Comprehensive Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, Philadelphia, JB Lippincott & Company,
1864. No exact match in Hills.

This Bible is severely water-damaged, but appears to
have dried out well, with no smells or really bad
discolorations. All of the entries appear in just two
handwritings, with the all-important year missing
from a lot of the dates.

There is also an obituary of Rev. James Dill, Civil War
Veteran from Monticello pressed into this Bible.
