Bedford Bible

The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Oxford, Printed at the University Press. OT title page missing,
so the above is taken from the NT title page. Undated. Leather cover
stamped British and Foreign Bible Society, Tenpence Reduced
Price. I would estimate early to mid 1800s based on that price.
Has "Watkins Binder" stamp on inside back cover; that stamp
might also help date this Bible.

This Bible is in fair condition. The covers are still attached, but
several pages at the beginning and end are missing. Bible starts
with Genesis 4:19 and ends with Revelation 19:17.

There are several different handwritings here. The first two entries look
like they were written at the same time, but the rest look individually

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
