Durgin Family Bible on E-Bay

Hello! I just came across this bible that is being auctioned off on E-Bay. Here is what it says about it.

1847 ANTIQUE LEATHER FAMILY SIZE BIBLE Large

Item #1427021376
Description

1847 ANTIQUE LEATHER FAMILY SIZE BIBLE Large

Up for auction is a venerable 154-year old large pre-Civil War leatherbound HOLY BIBLE, published in Cooperstown, New York by H & E Phinney in 1847. Bible also contains the whole of the APOCRYPHA. Embossed relief leather
boards with ribbed spine and title in gold on black field. Beautiful primitive full page illustrations inside. Pages yellowed, some foxing, but not brittle (except for blank front matter). Bible feels quite ancient, from the illustrations and old leatherwork. Volume needs TLC -- front cover is detached and leather spine strip detached right side. Still holding on to rear hinge, as is rear cover which is actually pretty sturdy. Front matter has stencils of two names -- a "Priscilla A.
Durgin," and what appears to be the name "Sander" or "Lander"... An old Bible -- beautiful and worthy of rebinding.

The auction ends on May 6. If you go to Ebay at www.ebay.com and search by the item # shown above, it will take you right to the page. Good luck!!!
