The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments.
Cambridge: Printed by John W. Parker, London,
MDCCCXXXV (1835). Similar to Darlow & Moule
#1146, although no mention of the British & Foreign Bible
Society. Not listed in Herbert.
This Bible is in good condition, stable binding and signatures.
Almost no foxing. Has the scent of pipe smoke, which is not
unpleasant. Purchased from a bookseller in London, so do
not assume any of these people emigrated to America just
because this Bible is currently there.
Please check the scans for accuracy here. The handwriting of
William Starling is almost indecipherable.
Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
