BELL - JUDD BIBLE

This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives.

This is a leather-bound medium-format Bible, in new condition. The entries are all in ink, written in a neat "copperplate hand". The sameness of the entries, and the fact that most of the entries refer to events ocurring before the publication date of the Bible, make it likely that they were all made at the same time.
The entries are on "Family Record" pages between the Old and New Testaments, in Volume 2.

Partial transcript of the title page is:
                            COTTAGE BIBLE

                                 AND

                           FAMILY EXPOSITOR

                                 etc.
                                  ..
                                  ..
      HARTFORD. PRINTED & PUBLISHED BY CASE, TIFFANY AND COMPANY
                                1854.
