JAMES-HISLOP BIBLE

Transcribed by Charles Dobie

           This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives. It is a large-format Bible, leather bound, with a large brass clasp. The cover is loose, but the pages are in good condition. The Bible was published in Great Britain, but there is no publishing date.

           The genealogical information is written on two of eight elaborately engraved pages provided between the Old and New Testaments. In addition, a typed sheet of paper inserted at the beginning of the Bible has also been transcribed.
