This is a Holy Bible and a Book of Common Prayer out of my third great grand uncle's, Rev. Leonard Mitchell, personal library in St. Mary Episcopal Church in Nebraska City, Nebraska. St. Mary's is the last church he served as pastor in, he died in the church's rectory. The third photo is the inside cover, it reads Ex Libris Rev Leonard Mitchell. The second photo is of Leonard reading a book that I believe is this one! If anybody knows anything about this bible please share. I have searched for a date within it and I cannot find one. Please Help!!

    The pages are VERY thin. That leads me to believe that it's older than it's owner, however there are several things that make me question that.
