McCray Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, Carlton & Porter, 1860. Hills #1720.

This Bible is in poor condition. The binding has nearly
disintegrated but the interior pages are in much better shape.
Has a musty smell and may have seen some water in
its time.

There is a lot of stuff in this Bible. A couple pieces of early
cellophane, newspaper clippings with recipies, helpful
hints, poems and a description of consumption, a special
order blank for Egyptian Regulator Tea, fabric (one piece
with embroidery, and a small banner invitation to a Sunday
School picnic.
