Cook Family Bible
« on: Tuesday 05 January 16 05:34 GMT (UK) »
Anyone have an idea of when this bible may have been printed? It has been passed down through my mothers side of the family. The first handwritten entry is dated Jan 27th 1842.

I will post more photos in following posts

The Reverend John Eadie, named on the frontispiece, obtained his D.D. from St. Andrews in 1850.
And he died in 1876.

Cassell, Petter & Galpin became a full partnership, under that name, in 1859.

So a date between 1859 and 1876 looks likely ;D

I also found these handwritten entries. Probably not a great help in identifying the likely print date though
