Merville Family Bible

Unfortunately, years of neglect took it's toll upon the family bible (see top row) looked like the photograph above. Not wishing the bible to languish in this condition we decided a much needed restoration was necessary. The restoration was entrusted to Edward Stansell of Craft Bookbinding Company, Clifton, Tennessee. The results of his excellent craftsmanship is the bible as seen in the bottom row.

The bible is now in the possession of Adam’s great great granddaughter, my wife, Rebecca and occupies a place of honor in our family home.
