Flatla Bible

Bibelen eller den Hellige Shrift, Christiania, Grendahl, 1862.

This is a medium-sized Norwegian Bible in fair condition. The
pages and endpages are all present and in good condition,
with moderate foxing. The last page of the old testament is
missing, and there are no pages between it and the new
testament, including a title page if there was one. Perhaps
there were family pages here that were removed before I
obtained the volume. The boards are both present and solid,
but with some wrinkling, and the spine has some loss including
a full inch and a half at the top.

This Bible is in the possession of Tracy St. Claire and transcribed
to the best of my ability. The Norwegian transcription is done
without any knowledge or appropriate font. Help appreciated.
