Fancher Family Bible

This is a rather interesting Bible in that the front and back leaves are pasted over what appears to be German Bible text. The Bible is dated 1828, and the family records are pasted into the center of the book between the old and new testaments. Along with the records, there is some intricate "doodling" done in an old looking style.
