Shepherd Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, Concord, N.H., Luther Roby, 1849.

This Bible was rebound, probably at the end of the 19th
century. It is in very good condition, with the gilding on the
pages still present. The front cover is off, however.

There are some curious pieces of ephemera included -- a
couple of book spines, and two drawings.

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,

Scans available at . The scans
are not that great, because it would damage the spine to get
better ones.
