The People's Standard Edition of the Holy Bible Containing
the Old and New Testaments. Philadelphia, Ziegler and
McCurdy, 1872. Hills #1878.
This Bible is in good condition, with the cover nearly coming
off and the spine separated. It could be easily repaired, and
the pages are in fine shape.
The handwriting is a fraktur style from Pennsylvania and is
gorgeous. I had originally mistaken many of the flowers and
accents as original to the printed page.
Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
