MORSON BIBLE


This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives.

I forgot to measure the Bible, but I think it is about 8 by 10 inches, and very well used.
All of the genealogical information is written in pen on the blank side of the front paper (3rd blank page before the title page).

Partial transcript of the title page is:
                                 THE
                              HOLY BIBLE
                            CONTAINING THE
                        OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS
                              etc, etc.

                               OXFORD:
                    PRINTED AT THE CLARENDON PRESS
                    By SAMUEL COLLINGWOOD AND CO.
                      PRINTERS TO THE UNIVERSITY
                                 etc.

                                 1823

[The New Testament title page is dated 1822]
