An 1851 Pre Civil War Bible - Photos

I usually don't post photos but I wanted to share these from an 1851 Bible published by Samuel Hueston, 139 Nassau Street and printed  by C.A. Alvord Printer in N.Y. It contains notes by Rev. Ingram Cobbin, M.A. This Bible belongs to my brother-in-law but it's currently at my residence.

What was happening in 1851? Millard Fillmore was president. Moby Dick is published in the US and Nathaniel Hawthorne's The House of Seven Gables  is also printed. The painting Washington Crossing the Delaware is completed.

 The name of the previous owner the Bible.



 The beginning pages above





Each section has a nice illustration. See an example of the first page of Genesis above.


 The illustrations for the Historical Books (above)


The poetical books and a page from Job (above). Notice what Behemoth was according to this Bible.
