In the past we made it known that we are interested in old Bibles.
The older the better.
We have reported on December 1, 2010, how we acquired in Anchorage AK, a KJV Bible published by Oxford University Press in 1889.
Since then friends are calling us with tips where an old Bible is available. Sometimes we are being told "Someone has an old Bible and want to place it in good hands." We love to provide a home, a good home to aged Bibles.

A few weeks ago a friend called to say, "My brother wants to give away the old family Bible."
How old is old? In that case it is 201 years old.
Below are photographs of the colophone pages.
