Francis Bible

Y Bibl Sanctaidd: Sef, YR HEN DESTAMENT A'R
NEWYDD, Caerfyrddin: Mr. David Humphreys, M,DCCC,VII.

The Bible itself is in great condition, in Welsh. It was rebound
at some point, keeping the original leather atop some new
leather? It badly needs a drink of water, but the inside pages
are in such good condition, I originally doubted the date.

This Bible was purchased in London.

The genealogy information is on the front flyleaves. The numbers off
to the side of some entries were done in pencil at a later date.
