THOMPSON BIBLE

This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives.

The Bibles (Volumes I & VI) measure 6 1/2 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches high. Both volumes are very worn, with tattered spines, etc. The titles on the spines read "SCOTT'S BIBLE" plus the volume number.
The genealogical information is written on the last page of Volume 1, on the half blank page below the type. All but the last entry is written in brown ink. The last entry is written in pencil. Note the variable spellings "McKINLAY"/"McKINLEY" and "Elizebeth"/"Elizabeth".

Partial transcript of the title page of Vol I is:
                              HOLY BIBLE
