Civil War Era Family Name Embossed Bible 1856 signed Alfred Bergen New Jersey
This antique Bible from 1856 is a unique piece of Christian history. With its embossed family name and pencil writing inside, it brings to life the era of the Civil War. The leather binding is in good condition, with no tears or damage, and the pages are intact. This original copy, published by the New York Bible Society, is inscribed by Alfred W Bergen and family. Its special attributes make it a rare find for collectors of Bibles and those interested in the history of Christianity. It was printed in English and manufactured in the United States.
The embossed name on the cover is very rare to find the only other one I found like this looks to be from a Civil War military person. Book is in need of repair. Antique HOLY BIBLE American Bible Society N.
