I was trolling E-bay to see if there were any Bibles for sale for my family, and I spotted the following.
Item number: 6934517665 This is an antique Bible and has engravings sprinkled throughout the book. It has the Old and New Testaments (with marginal references), the Apocrypha and Concordance and an Index. It has over 800 pages. I am liquidating my collection of old Bibles and scriptures due to a move in the next six months. This book comes from a smoke-free house.
This book measures 11.25" L x 9.25" W x 3.5" D. It is worn on both covers and the spine is taped to the front and back covers. All the pages are intact and still bound. There are some pages with water marks but they're faint and don't affect the print or paper. The pages have dark marks here and there which I assume are due to age (foxing).
Between the Apocrypha and the New Testament are Family Register pages. The only thing written on any of them is someone's name (maybe "Florence Elden") and the date Jan. 11, 1870. Written in the same handwriting on the very last page of Revelation is "I hate hate hate Alma Elden". Looks like Florence and Alma weren't getting along at one point.
It does not appear that the Reserve was met, so if you enter the item number listed above, you will see how to contact the seller if you are interested. Good luck.
