This copy contains so much information that is not found in today's bibles: approximate dates for the events, using James Ussher's dating methods, at the top corner of each page; a table of contents that gives the chapter for many major biblical events found in each book; and even a list pertaining to the number of chapters, verses words, and even letters in the Bible (remember, back then this all had to be done manually).

This is the Catholic edition, containing the apocryphal books between the Old and New Testaments. It also contains the often seen, never used family records page just before the New Testament, although I was not fortunate enough for it to have any information filled in.
