This is a very unusual book. It is the size and style of a family bible, but it is not. It is a book of daily devotions; pages for each day! But right at the start is a family page and Samuel and his wife Sarah's births are recoded and their seven children. In 1861 Samuel was a Furnace Man in Tipton. The book is in very good condition. It is about 10 inches by 11 inches and four inches thick. There are lots of prints, full page lithographs, throughout the book. The children are listed as being born in different towns around Tipton in the West Midlands.
