OLD BIBLE/GENEALOGY, 1875, GOOD COND. HOWARTH FAMILY
INCLUDES PICS, DEATH NOTICES, ETC Item number: 6903247513
1875, GOOD CONDITION, HOWARTH FAMILY NAME
There is no date on the cover page but I'm sure the date of printing is within 5 years of 1875. These Family Bibles were usually aquired at the time of marrage and that's stated 1874 in the very extensive family Register.
The Bible itself is in pretty good condition. The worst of it is the front cover has become detached. It's a very clean break though and can be easily repaired my a Bookbinder. The back cover is still attached but a little weak. Otherwise this impressive Old Bible is in very good condition, still very serviceable, and has some very nice prints. There are a few scattered non-distracting age spots.
As shown in the photo there are some very old pictures of, I assume, George and Mary Ann Howarth, the Patriarch and Matiarch of the Howarth clan. There are also Newspaper clipping, death notices, a Christmas card, and a National Registration Identity Card for Mary Ann from WW-II (she was born in 1849!!!)
This is "King James Bible" printed by Charles Courtier and Sons, London
