The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testament,
1813, Evert Duykinck, New York. Hills # 229, Numbered as
This Bible has a leather covering over the binding, so I can't
a good assessment of its true condition. Some pages (a few) have
fallen out, but all seem to be there. There is a spine crack.
There is little ephemera and stuff -- a few leaves, and a couple
school lessons from 1877. There is also a couple jottings from someone
about Elizabeth Shelp, just dates from this Bible, though.
Placed inside this Bible was a Mount family register from another Bible.
