: : : : I also have a copy of this bible - with metal edging and two metal clasps and a date of 1876 on the spine.Inside it states John Brown died 19th June 1787 aged 65 years. For 36 yrs a minister at Haddington & 20 yrs Professor of Divinity under the ociate synod. The family notes are still intact and date from 1850. That is all the information I have at present. Regards.
: I have two oversized volumes of Brown's Bible-The Most Superb Folio and Self Interpreting Bible by the late Rev.d John Brown, Minister of the Gospel at Haddington. Printed and published by C.Brightly and T. Kinnersley, bundan, suffolk, May 26, 1812. Embelished with Forty Beautiful Engravings Bungay: Printed for T. Kinnersley, by Brightly and Childs 1815. Would also like info on value. These were printed as a two-volume set. Very nice! Look forward to hearing from someone on value. The bookplate inside says, "Wm. Hitchman, Bicester, Oxon, 1818."
