This mega-tome belonged to the Mitchell family, with obvious and heavy provenance, apparently centered in the area of Essex County, VA.  Gadzooks what a Bible! - enough here for everyone.  It is said it takes the average reader 72 hours to read the text of the Bible through. Me thinks that might not be so with this Behemoth - quite the distinctive - and large, slice of Captured Tyme.
