This family bible has the inscription "Presented to Miss Georgiana Binder" by "Pottstown PA...October 10, 1884".

Next is a record of Births and Marriages (on front and back). The births page is filled in in elaborate calliagraphic style writing, and reads as follows:

The very last pages are for photos and reads "Family Portraits". There is one page to hold two large photos(one in front and one in back) and then a page that would hold 8 smaller ones (four on each side). There are two smaller photos: a small cardboard backed one of a girl, and opposite a photograph on metal (tintype?) of a boy.
