1751 Bible Book Common Prayer Psalms Church England Baskett Bates Antique Oxford

Title   1751 Bible Book Common Prayer Psalms Church England Baskett Bates Antique Oxford

Condition   used

Item Number   bible6

Serious inquiries - there are 16 more pictures - send me your email and I will forward. I've had this bible for awhile now - there is some personal information contained within the bible. It was given to a Charles Bates by a Robert Dormore at the baptism of Bates son Peter on June 29th 1751 in or at the parish of St Margarates - Westminister. Their penmanship was so exquisite back then. There is a further reference to Robert as being baptized April4 1701 registered in the parish of Burnham county of Bucks. That was signed by an M Tate That information was recorded on the first 2 pages of this bible On the last page of the bible it states that Peter Bates was born on june 29th of 1751 again St Margarates - Westminister. That inscription was signed John Harding. There is also a very small envelope on which someone has hand written so obscure information in regrds to something about 1200 paintings - I really can't make much of that out - perhaps you will be better at it. The leather front and back are not in jeopardy of becoming detached. However it is a well read bible. There are no other hand markings that I found. The pages are kinda of water marked (see pics) but not ripped or folded. Condition is as shown in pictures. Considering that this book is 264 years old - I think it is in fair condition. I love old bibles and their history. This family did take care of this bible I think. the parchment is not all crispy or crumbling. The pages turn freely. I've tried to research these families with not a great amount of success. the Bates family tree is quite extensive and spans many centuries and 2 continents. It seems there is a lot of information in the 1700's that might be lost. Found not an over whelming amount during that time but a lot of information from the 1800's and on. Being a layperson researcher I'm thinking you must have been important to have your child baptized in St Margares at that time but I could be mistaken. I so wanted to find more info on these 3 people but alas no luck. If you have any further info or I have gotten something totally incorrect in this listing please feel free to contact me for addressing. I will ship this item fully insured with delivery signature required.

Price = 500.00 USD
