This is a Union Bible Dictionary published by the American Sunday-School Union in 1837.
First Edition, published in 1837. A New Edition - Improved & Enlarged, with Entirely New Engravings, was published in 1855.
At some point in this books lifetime, someone took upon themselves to date this book by writing 1852 & 1851 on the title page, which I'm sure was based on the handwritten inscription in the front of this book, which was also incorrectly copied from the faint original inscription.
The original inscription reads:
Marie E. Preston
Presented by the
American S. S. Union
Hartford, Ct. Apr. 9, 1852
