1792 Holy Bible printed by Hugh Gaine in New York. Measures roughly 6.75" x 4.25" and is around 2 thick.Missing both title pages (this Bible was identified by comparing with known copies), text starts at Genesis Chapter 27, last page of Revelation likely missing, two pages before that are torn in half, the majority of pages aside from that are in good shape for an American printing of this age. Bible is still in original leather binding and both boards are still attached (though the entire book is fragile as you would expect). Some signatures are starting to pull and there may be additional pages missing that are not mentioned (I haven't checked the Bible page by page).
Owner inscription of Daniel Wiswell (or possibly Wiswelt), dated January 31st, 1792.
