Ayers Bible

No identification of the publisher of the Bible. All title
pages are missing. Volume has the Old Testament, New Testament
and Apocrypha. It is a quarto volume in rough condition from
early-to-mid 19th century.

The binding on this volume is in very good condition, with the
spine and boards all in one piece and with very little damage.
The text, however, has separated completely from the binding
and the collation is in fragments, there are some rodent chewings
and I am sure some pages are lost, although I have not sorted
through them to see how many. All title pages are missing.

There is a body of evidence to suggest this family was from Sussex
County, NJ -- US federal census data, etc.

There is an old rose pressed in this Bible.
