Hand-written Bible

Page from Marjorie Armour's BibleA highlight of the donations from 2012 was an entire Bible copied by hand in thirty-three journals by Marjorie Griffin Armour in 1938 and 1939 in Ontario's Binbrook Township. The offer of a $25 prize was an inducement during the depression. Marjorie, who was then in her late teens, accomplished the task in just under a year, averaging three pages per day. It's a unique addition to the library's impressive Theological collection.

Images from the bible, along with the shopwindow sign from when the Bible was completed, can be seen below.
