This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives:
The Perth Museum,
11 Gore St. E.,
This Bible was recently purchased from the estate of Mrs. Frances
BEEMAN. It is a leather-bound, medium format Bible in new condition.
Except for the hand-written birth and marriage entries, it seems that
the book had never been opened. There is not even an owner's name
written inside the cover.
The entries are written on elaborately engraved pages provided
the Old and New Testaments. From the handwriting and consistancy of
the ink, they seem to have all been made at the same time.
Partial transcript of the title page is:
LINCOLN, EDMANDS & Co. AND PIERCE & PARKER.
BRATTLEBORO': PECK & WOOD.
printed at the Brattleboro' Power Press Office
