I saw this on eBay. I am not the seller.
Surnames in the bible are Brown and Peckham. It contains at least 18 noncolored block print pictures and 2 hand colored pictures. The Family history section is all hand colored. It's unbelievable for the shape this is in for 147 years old. Binding is solid and not cracked. Leather front and back cover are wonderful and fully embossed. Middle front says "the wolf shall also dwell with the lamb" and goes on with the complete passage. Inscribed into the leather with Angels, Lion etc. The family history has been filled out and dates back to the 1700's. I sold one of these about 4 months ago and it brought $120.00 with the pages falling out and the binding broke. My opening bid is very fair on this so good luck to the high bidder. Still has the wax sheets in it between pictures. Bible is 12" high 9 1/2" wide and 3" thick. Weighs almost 8 lbs.
