Lowenthal Bible

This Bible was submitted by Tom Welton.

I obtained this "The Holy Scriptures" - According to the Masoretic Text from an antique mall in Coffman, Mo (south of St. Louis). It is copyright 1917 with the Seventh Impressin, August 1927. It has a leather (or leatherette) cover with a gold impression of a temple and "The Temple - Cleveland, Ohio". "Bertha Lowenthal" is also embossed on the cover.

I am attempting to contact Maynard Nugent and will return the bible to him.



The second page is as follows:
