Platt Bible

I acquired this piece at auction. This page was
separated from the bible, so no definite details about
the bible are available. The reverse is an etching, and
the paper and etchings resemble late 18th century

These bible pages were transcribed by and are in the
possession of Tracy St. Claire, .

This family apparently resided in Suffolk County, NY.
