Hall of Messingham

Price incl. VAT, plus delivery

I'm not sure that I want to sell this one! It was printed in 1792. It is a New Testament and Pslams with a few other items. It's key point is that is was owned by a Nicholas Hall who lived in Messingham in Lincolnshire, which is the next villagte east of Epworth, where John Wesley originated. Welsey preached in Messingham a few years before the first entry in this bible, but while Nicholas was a young man. So it could well be that this man who called this book his own actually heard Wesley speak. The book is about 4.5 inches wide, by 7 inches high, and about 1 inch thnk. The front leather style cover is detached as is the title page. Inside the back flysheets are written the births of Nicholas' children.
