While clearing out my parents house I found a bible dated

Customer Question

While clearing out my parents house I found a bible dated 1683.It is the complete New Testament. Before the book of Revelation there is a page which appears to be a complex timeline with the heading ' A Scheme of the Order and concurrence of the Prophecies of the Revelation wherein the substance of the whole may be seen in one view'.
The next page starts with 'A preface to the Revelation' followed by the book of Revelation.
After the end of Revelation there starts a whole, long, new section titled 'The HARMONY of the GOSPELS'.
The bible has an original, intact ( tho' very old ) leather cover. I do not know who wrote it.
The outer edges of the pages are dark sepia coloured with age: but the pages tho' 'yellowy' are completely legible.They substitute the letter S with an F ( per old times.).
The Height = 91/2 inches by Width =71/2 inches and 21/4 thick.
