ANOTHER BELL BIBLE
Submitted May 1, 1997 by:

This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives:
The Perth Museum,
11 Gore St. E.,
This is a leather-bound medium-format Bible, in new condition. The
entries are all in ink, written in a neat "copperplate hand". The
sameness of the entries, and the fact that most of the entries refer
to events ocurring before the publication date of the Bible, make it
likely that they were all made at the same time.
The entries are on "Family Record" pages between the Old and New
Testaments, in Volume 2.
Partial transcript of the title page is:
