This Bible was seen in June, 1995 in the stock of:
Berry & Peterson, Booksellers,
348 King Street East,
Canada. K7L 3B6.
My thanks to the proprietor who allowed me to photograph this Bible and the Moggridge Bible.
The Bible is about 8 by 14 inches or slightly larger, and is about three inches thick. I didn’t record how many pages.
The inscription is written in blue ink on a blank right-hand page before the title page.
The title page reads:
