The Complete Family Bible Containing the Sacred Text of the
Old and New Testament ... with Notes... By Francis Fawkes,
M.A.. London, Printed for the Author and Sold by J. Coote,
MDCCLXI. (1761). This volume has only the New Testament,
and lacks leaves prior to Chap 2:2, and appears bound that way.
No references this early to a Fawkes volume in either Herbert or
Darlow & Moule.
This volume is in good condition, with binding intact, but I
evidence of repair. The spine reads
ON YE NEW
and lacks leaves as above, possibly more because I cannot find
a reference to verify one way or another.
The inscriptions below are on the inside front cover. I would
assume from this that the twin boys born in 1753 did not survive,
owing to the birth of another child so quickly.
