Oyster Bible Gallery

These are photos taken on March 3, 2013 of the Oyster Family Bible, which came to me from my parents.  From the family history inscribed in it, it is likely that the book was purchased by Andrew Oyster at around the time of his marriage to Emma Ladd in January 1867.  These photos are in order from front to back, and chronicle any page or insert that goes beyond the basic printing of the book.
