NPWHF1226 - Holy Bible
The cover is leather (leather-like?) with a gold border. It is worn in various places. Seven (7) cm of the top of the spine is missing. Under that is "COBBIN." The spine has six (6) sets of three (3) vertical lines. The back cover also has a gold border and is worn in various places. The endsheets are blue marbled. The left endsheet appears to have had a bookplate at one time. The book is separating from the spine at the beginning. The two pages following the endsheets were blank, however, the right one has two hand-written entries. The first is in black ink "obedient waiting on God alone comfit me to be used by the Holy Spirit in prayer to ask those things in Faith nothing wavering which He the Holy Spirit will direct me is my need __ believing that every good gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of Lights in whom is not variableness neither shadow of turning --- who giveth to all men liberally tupbraideth not --- ask and ye shall receive" with initials (possibly ETH) following. Under that is written "Mary Ann - Cottee (?) - Witham - Essex - 1850." Under that passage in blue ink is "Received through the passing of Ruths Parents Mr & Mrs Berton Krill 1968 - to their son in law & their only Granddaughte Karen, Ruth Schroeder" signed "Kenneth Stanley Schroeder" and "1968." On the next page (left side), written in pencil, is "To the Seven Churches" and then lists them. Following that page, someone has taped in a page "THE - DOMESTIC - BIBLE - BY THE - REV. INGRAM COBBIN, M.A." The next page is the title page with "DOMESTIC BIBLE - THE - HOLY BIBLE, - CONTAINING - THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS, - ACCORDING TO - The Authorized Version; - WITH THE - MARGINAL REFERENCES, AND THE USUAL VARIOUS READINGS - WITH - NOTES; REFLECTIONS; QUESTIONS; IMPROVED READINGS; IMPROVED DIVISIONS OF CHAPTERS; THE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER; METRICAL PORTIONS DISTINGUISHED; AND VARIOUS OTHER ADVANTAGES, WITHOUT DISTURBING THE USUAL ORDER OF THE - BOOKS, VERSES, AND CHAPTERS, - BY - THE REV. INGRAM COBBIN, M.A. - ILLUSTRATED WITH NUMEROUS DESCRIPTIVE ENGRAVINGS. - LONDON: - PARTRIDGE AND OAKEY, PATERNOSTER ROW." There is no publication date. There are some age spots on some pages. The pages are intact with a few with bent corners. There are 1001 pages of The Old Testament and 376 pages of The New Testament. Some pages have hand-written notes. The last three blank pages also have pencil hand-written notes. The book measures 19 cm wide and 25.5 cm in length and 8.9 cm in depth.
