POCKET TESTAMENT IDENTIFIED TO 24TH NEW JERSEY SOLDIER

$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 37-390

Pocket New Testament with the usual leather cover with fold over flap. The tab that sides under the keeper to hold the cover closed is missing but otherwise the cover exhibits light to moderate wear. Stamped in word gold on the spine is “TESTAMENT.”

The title page states that the book is “THE TESTAMENT OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST: TRANSLATED OUT OF THE ORIGINAL GREEK AND WITH THE FORMER TRANSLATIONS DILIGENTLY COMPARED AND REVISED.” Bottom of the title page shows that the volume was printed by The American Bible Society in New York in 1862.

Inside the front cover are two inscriptions, each of two lines. The first is done in a shaky hand while the second is more firm and both are in ink and read “DANIEL H. NEIPLING / CO. H, 24TH N.J. VOLS.” The first blank page has the soldier’s name again in faint pencil followed by a repetition of the inscription on the opposite page, again in ink and in a strong hand. Below it in faint pencil is “KEEP THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE 24 NEW JERSEY VOLUNTEERS.” Inside the back cover in faint pencil is “MRS. DANIEL H. NEIPLING, PITTSBURGH, PA.”

Interior is clean and binding is tight.

Daniel H. Neipling (listed as Neiplin in the records) enlisted in Company H, 24th New Jersey on September 2, 1862 and was discharged at the expiration of his term of enlistment. During his 9 month service the regiment saw action at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville with the 2nd Corps, Army of the Potomac before being mustered out on June 29, 1863. During its time the regiment lost 80 officers and men killed, wounded and captured.[ad]
