Carpenter received Masonic funeral rites at a memorial service in Brattleboro, VT. He was buried at Arms Cemetery in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
I acquired this copy from an estate collection within 50 miles of Arthur's burial place. The bible measures approximately 5 by 3.
The covers are made with black leather with intricate patterns. The bible is in very good condition given its pre-civil age, there is only light exterior wear to the covers. There are some foxing and browning in the interior pages, but the text appears clean and complete. The leather covers and binding are tight and in good integrity.Overall a well-maintained personal copy from a historically important family. The item "1851 Antique RARE!
