Meredith Bible


This bible was purchased on eBay, provenance unknown.
It has a page of deaths and memoranda, with a page before
it removed that possibly had more information. There
are two photographs included, one of Isaac Meredith
and one tintype of William Meredith.

Bible is currently in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
114 Hilltop Lane, Sleepy Hollow, IL 60118. aaf@ais.net

Bible undated by Whilt and Yost of Philadelphia. Looks
mid-19th century.

I have done some other research on the date of this
Bible. Whilt and Yost published four Bibles between
1850-1872. Hills (English Bible in America) lists only
one that was undated -- the 1850 edition. The
description of that edition matches this Bible in all other
ways, so I identify this Bible as a Hills #1416 1850
Bible.
