The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
First Brookfield Edition, Brookfield (Massachusetts) 1815,
Hills #273, 12,000 copied printed per O'Callaghan. I don't
know why it says "First Brookfield Edition". There are several
editions prior to this one by this publisher in Brookfield.
Original binding still intact, but front and rear flyleaves
or missing. All pages present from my examination. The binding
is rough, with chips on the front cover and and about a 1"
piece missing from the spine.
The front signature says " The Property of Henry F. Fitz
July 4th 1818". I do not know how or if this Fitzgerald is related
to the Watkins family.
Per unconfirmed Internet sources, this family is from Virginia.
