The Bible has soiling and brown marks to all the pages and is 258 years old with family history of Gibson family.
As you can see from the dates many of the infants died early. Twin boys were born in 1828.
The pages are all intact apart from the first two pages.
The front cover is off but back cover and spine are attached.
The book had a dark green cloth cover which I will include - it has some holes on it.
