From the 1870s, beautifully bound in fine highly embossed leather, this is a deluxe edition of The Holy Bible, as published by Lyons Brothers & Co. The family Bible belonging to the family of W. With remarkable handwritten genealogy information. Sized 12x9 inches, thousands of pages. With very impressive color prints like the one we show here recording the marriage of W.
Griffith and Elizabeth Griffith on September 7th, 1857. Griffith was born on Nov. Elizabeth Griffith was born March 6, 1832.
Other births are Willard Griffith (1858), Dudley Griffith (1861) and Dana Griffith (1864). We have rarely seen such an impressive and intact family Bible of this size. A few pages that were loose have some edge wear, but it is complete. We think they were Southerners as there is a faint stamp of some kind of a Civil War general we think is Stonewall Jackson.A repair to the bottom of the spine. If you know which branch of the Griffith family this was, let us know.
