Description:

Full leather with leather spine label, "Holy Bible" in gilt. Edge-worn and rubbed, with foxing throughout. Front hinge cracking, but binding is firm, no loose pages. A solid copy of this First Brookfield Edition, of which 12,000 copies were printed from 1814 to 1815. Ebenezer Merriam, the publisher, was born in 1777; served his apprenticeship to Isaiah Thomas. The Darling Family were the original owners of this copy. Printed on the verso of the title page is rectangular ornament simulating a bookplate, in which is written in contemporary script: "Hannah Darling's Book." Family dates (births, marriages, deaths) are recorded in a space provided between the Old and New Testaments. Both Hannah Darling (nee Murdock) and her husband, Jewett, were born before the Revolutionary War, married in 1809, and had five children (three survived infancy). Genealogy research indicates that Jewett Boynton Darling served during the Revolutionary War and that Hannah's sister, Deborah, was his first wife. They had married in 1790 and in 1809, as Hannah recorded in the family Bible, he married Hannah. A few interesting items are found in various pages of the book: Four-leaf clovers, some dark thread, and finally, at the end of the New Testament, a torn page impressively hand-sewn back together again with white thread! 959 pages.
