THE JEFFERSON BIBLE IN LATIN, GREEK, FRENCH, AND ENGLISH
>I have a good friend that has a copy of the Jefferson Bible that the Federal >Government made up around the 1900s I think. It is a type of photocopy of >Jefferson's Bible - with everything still in his handwriting - and one can >see the cut and paste job, along with some notations on the side. Of course, >each facing page has 2 columns - Greek and Latin, then French and English. I >think about 9000 of these were printed up just to go to the House of >Representatives and Senate. This lady inherited the Bible. >My questions - about what is this Bible worth? I'm sorry, but I cannot provide an authoritative answer to your question. There was a time when the U. S. Government furnished a copy of the Jefferson Bible to every Representative and Senator. I doubt if the book has any great value, though the fact that it includes a photostatic copy of Jefferson's original might make it valuable to some persons, since modern editions contain only the King James Version (in English). My suggestion would be to offer it for auction at Ebay. A reasonable minimum bid might be $10 or $15, but you might get much more than that for it.
