The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments, translated out of the original tongues, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. The text conformable to that on the edition of 1611, commonly known as the authorized version. World Syndicate Company, Inc. New York, USA.
I don't know the exact age of this Bible but after looking at similar Bibles on Ebay and Etsy, I believe it to be from the late 1920's to the early 1930's.
Inside the covers a few Bible verses have been noted:
1 Peter 3:5: For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands.
1 Corinthians 11:15: But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
Romans 15:26: For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.
1 Timothy 6:10: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Acts 17:34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
It seems the previous owner of the old Bible had an interest in verses concerning women and the poor(saints).
The "Well Used Bible" is joining my "Stack of Bibles" (second from the top) AND "The Infant of Prague" on the top of the china cabinet.
