The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Edinburgh, Mark and Charles Kerr, MDCCXCVII (1797).
"Ostervald" Bible, composed by the Reverend Mr. Ostervald.
This Bible is in fair condition. The boards are solid but the
front cover is of. The spine is totally split in several places.
The inside page appear clean, undamaged and complete,
with the expected foxing. The laid paper was of good quality,
so the foxing is minimal and the pages are supple. They
don't make them like this anymore.
I cannot place this family anywhere, as there are no clues
to any places inside and no overwhelming evidence on the
Internet. There are enough last names to confirm a link,
