Pages in fair condition, but several have been repaired. Bible has been in damp conditions and some pages are water stained, but considering that it's in very good condition. It's a church type bible, rather than a family bible, so has large clear print. The family information has been entered inside the front cover as there are no family history pages.

It looks like Walter may have been the original owner and the Turners acquired the book around 1839 - maybe as a wedding present. Possibly Elizabeth's maiden name was Trudgett?
