About this Item

Bound in period, full brown leather. The rubbed covers are well attached with a little cracking. The spine label has some edge chipping. There are no frontpapers and the loose title page has been edge-trimmed and attached to the inner cover. 983 total pages which are tightly bound and have occasional small spotting and foxing. A number of pages have a water discoloration. This bible was published in New York for the Methodist Episcopal Church. This bible was in the possession of Andrew Gray (Aug. 15, 1799 - Jan. 15, 1883) and his wife Charlotte (nee Black) (July 19, 1797 - Sept. 21, 1885). Andrew Gray was the son of Reuben Gray (June 3, 1762 - Nov. 30, 1858) and of Sarah G. Gray (nee Herrick) (Sept. 6, 1766 - July, 10, 1846). Charlotte was the daughter of Samuel Black (Sept. 9, 1766 - Feb. 21, 1862) and Rebecca Black (April 2, 1767 - Nov. 17, 1863). These entries are in the bible's "Family Record" section and are written in faint ink with a thin pen. A descendant has written out the entries in a clear hand onto separate sheets. There are additional entries for the births of the next generation of Grays (between 1818 and 1834) - Lucena, Stephen Decatur, Betsy, Silvia B., Martin Van Buren, William Jarvis Gray. Additional births of Grays (between 1855 and 1860) are : Rollins Y., Frank Herbert, Clara Frances. Additional births of Grays (between 1861 and 1870) on an enclosed paper are: June M. White, Emilie C., Melville Ernest, Maurice A. Gray. There are very few entries for deaths and no entries for marriages. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 11343
