From the description:

“Pocket style, produced with pocket covering and strap, produced one year after the CIVIL WAR. Nicely kept black leather covers show some minor wear with a few nicks and scratches, functional with gilt title on spine and page edges gilt, although the front cover is nearly detached, only held by a single cord. Flap lacking catch, as shown.  Pocket Bible, about 3.5″ wide, 5″ tall. Pages all intact, all pages lightly used, somewhat browned, a few instances of foxing and damp staining, with minor rounding/wear to edges, decent interior shape. Yellow decorative EPs.  Inscribed in front a note mentioning the death in 1859 of John T Wyatt of Henry Co. Indiana.  Good luck:)”

Hope this finds its way back to its family! If this is your line and you purchase the bible, please let us know.

Merry Christmas cousins.
