Crosby Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Philadelphia, Mathew Carey, April 23, 1806.

This Bible in good condition. The front cover is detached.
The spine is chipped about a half inch on the top and bottom.
All pages appear present but have foxing, with the page block
solid. A couple accordian bends on the first couple pages but
altogether a nice early American copy.

There is early ephemera tucked in with the pages, adding to
the genealogical interest of this piece. Written on the first
flyleaf is $4-50, the price. On the last page is her notation
of this.

All entries except the last are in the same handwriting,
presumably Abigail Crosby's.

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