Additional comments from the ebay posting:
Antique 1853 CATHOLIC BIBLE~ COLLINS family genealogy

BY GOD

C.1853

This auction is for a "huge" 1853 Catholic family bible.

It has several pages in the middle with family history for the COLLINS family dating back to 1852. It appears they are from New York, from the cities that are mentioned. Also present is some ephemera such as dried flowers presumably from funerals, weddings, and other occasions in this Catholic Family's life time.

The front cover has the name "Mary Ann O'Connell" on it.

The binding is in worn and rubbed but in good shape for its age. The pages are still attached to the binding and the pages are in excellent condition, other than a few pages that have a small tear here and there. This is a huge bible-- almost 4 inches thick. The front cover measures 9 X 11.5 inches.

I'm not a relative or the seller.
