Birum Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, New York,
American Bible Society, 1846. New Testament date, 1845.

ABS Bible Title Page 1846

The Bible is in fair-poor condition. Most of it is in good condition, but the
front flyleaves through the middle of Exodus have some rodent chewing
damage. "Dust to dust", as they say. The binding is intact, but the upper
part of the spine and cover show some burn marks, evidence of being in
a fire at some point. It is a smaller Bible, about 5" x 7", owned by Mary
Ann Birum.

There is some evidence to suggest that this family was from Indiana and

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
