Wanton family Bible, printed in London, 1690. Book has been rebound and some pages have been repaired. The edges of the pages may have been cut. The detached spine HOLY BIBLE appears to be from a different, thinner book. Original owner is assumed to be Gov. John Wanton (1672-1740). There are two sets of family inscriptions, none of which were made during his lifetime, written 1789-1875.
