I was given a family bible and was wondering if you tell me anything about it. I have enclosed 2 pictures. It is a huge bible weighing about 10 pounds with beautiful colored pictures through out the bible.

Answer
Hello Dave.
I've been asked this question several times. The bible was mass produced in Glasgow and is worth very little, despite its age and design. The best thing to do is take it to an antiquarian book dealer, but I doubt if they'll put too great a value on it.

I have a good basic knowledge of British political history, but my speciality is the Kings and Queens of England and Scotland from 927 AD. Please no social history questions, it's not my strong point and I'm unlikely to answer them.
