The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Edinburgh, Printed by Sir J. H. Blair & J. Bruce, 1799.
This Bible is in fair shape. The covers were crudely
reattached by method of two leather straps over the spine.
This must have happened a long time ago by the looks
of it. It appears to be complete, but it is unpaginated.
The genealogy page and an engraving are detached and in
The dates for these people are on a part of the page that
wore off. There is some ephemera through the book, and
a lot of leaves, and a piece of fabric and tinfoil. There
are two programs for Clayton Heights Wesleyan Sunday School,
one dated 1898, and one dated 1900. Both were printed in
Queensbury, and one was delivered by "Mr. Percy Heap of
Bradford". I assume through these place names that the
Bible stayed in England at least that long, although it
was purchased in the US.
There are some old obituaries as well on as scrap of old
