Reed Bible

I acquired this piece at auction. I purchased it
as a research piece, as my REED ancestors are
from Pennsylvania. It is a 2 volume Bible measuring
about 3.5" x 5". It is in gorgeous condition with
the original bindings.

The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Philadelphia, Printed by and for William W. Woodward,
1813. Hills #240.

This Bible was transcribed by and is in the
possession of Tracy St. Claire, .
