a bible is for sale on ebay listing stones family of keighley.


Item number: 3548800597 york uk.
It is the "Brown's self-interpreting family bible containing the Old and New Testaments by Rev. John Brown D.D." published by Adam and Co. Newcastle Upon Tyne.
It measures 13 inches by 10 inches by 4 inches thick
It has many full colour illustrations throughout.
On the fly leaf is written "Sarah Thackery. Bible Jan 25th 1887".
It is the Family Bible of the Stones family of Keighley, Pateley Bridge and Halifax in Yorkshire, England from 1829 to 1886.
Other names mentioned are Thackery and Currey. The bible is in fair condition for its age. The leather is scuffed in places and needs a good clean.
The paper strip joining the heavy front and back pages to the covers is there but it is peeling off. The actual book is still properly attached to the spine. (Very difficult to describe!)
