A Bible from Jerusalem

In 1938 my paternal grandfather, Howard B. Matthews, was working for the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago and was sent on a three-month inspection tour of their digs in the Near East. My grandmother, Dagmar Alice Viola Anderson, brought home this lovely Bible.

It is 4" tall and 2 3/4" wide and has olive wood covers. It is yet another find from Dad's basement stash and I had never seen it until this past September.
