This collection consists of one notebook containing handwritten notes on different editions of Bibles including a section entitled 'Various translations of the Bible'. The notebook also includes loose pages, journal clippings (mainly consisting of advertisements for various Bible editions), and a letter postmarked 'Huddersfield, '79', addressed to 'J R Dore, Honoria Street, Fartown, [Huddersfield, England]'. The collection also includes a pamphlet relating to an exhibition at Sunderland Public Libraries, Museum and Art Gallery on 'Catalogue of Bibles, Manuscripts, etc', April 1911. In view of the contents it seems likely that this notebook belonged to John Read Dore, author of 'Old Bibles: an account of the early versions of the English Bible', 1876, 2d ed, 1888.
