Pierce Bible

Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis of the Holy Bible,
New York, A.J. Johnson, 1870.

Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis of the Holy Bible

The Bible is in good condition, with the binding solid and bright
and the pages in good condition. However, there are some small
chips off of the bottom of the spine and some surface staining
and wrinkling to the front cover.

I think most (all?) of the earlier enties are those of Hannah Pierce
Collester. Her death, Matilda's and Isaac's are done in a
handwriting different from all other entries.

Tucked into the pages are feathers, leaves and a fabric sample.
