NEL Theunis Jacobus en Anna Margrita Susaan DREYER getroud 1865
Dedication: Dit Heilige Boek word verkocht onder de kinderen van dit Eersten Huwelijk, na ons zijn dood ... This Holy Boek to be sold amongst the children of the first muarriage, after our death ... Wenfontein 19 Augustus 1876
The Bible (we don't hava a publication date) appears, from the inscriptions, to have had its blank fly leaf pages decorated and inscribed with the family register in 1876, probably by William Peters, whose name with date appears at the foot of the first decorated page, Gedachtenis van onze dierbaare ouders, for Theunis Jacobus Nel and his wife Anna Margrita Susanna Dreyer. It looks, too, as though there were (or perhaps are) at least one more of these inscribed pages, perhaps at the back of the book, since the last we have, that before the title page, ends 'te Krugersdorp, Trans- '
This bible is lodged in the Queenstown Museum and the photogrphs were donated by Trysie Joubert.
