Family Bible 1817. Large, leather bound with engravings and notes


Family Bible bound in light tan leather with gold tooling on front cover and spine. Obviously an expensive item when new.
Book plate inside front cover reads: “Ann Jones. This book was given by her sister Mrs H Bowyear who departed this life July 28th 1826. Prepare to meet thy God.”
Printed by Bartlett and Newman Oxford in 1817
It is “embellished with beautiful engravings” and has copious notes (which often exceed the actual text!
Probably rebound at some stage as cover is in vgc, but some water staining on some pages which have consequently crinkled - but no impact on legibility.
This volume was transferred from another collection many years ago, and has no provenance or known local connection.
Acquirer to collect if possible, but could be posted.
