Old Item 101: "La Santa Biblia"

This is just one of the old items [and the first, actually] in my collection. It was primarily cared by Atty. Marwil "Mars" Llasos until he handed it down to me in the year 2011. This Holy Bible dates back year 1868 in Barcelona, Spain and was published and annotated by Most Rev. Felipe Scio de San Miguel, Bishop of Segovia and Ex-Provincial of the Order of Pious Schools (Escuelas Pias).

It is the fourth and last tomo (volume) of the Old Testament series. It includes the books from the prophet Jeremiah up to the Books of Maccabees.

Its provenance traces back to a certain Presbitero Diocesano Padre Vicencio Maclang of Vigan, Ilocos Sur. This year is its 146th year and 3rd year in my custody.

Here are some glimpses on this precious collection of mine.
