"Soldier's Bible" - Steel Cover?
So I've been looking into pocket bibles and would like to have one in my haversack or pack. I recently came across a few online that had steel covers and were advertised as "Soldiers" bibles (?). One was listed as having been from 1816, though that appeared to be the date of the publishing company, not that actual publication year. If anyone has knowledge of these metal covered bibles, I'd sure appreciate some helpful information.
Some searching around and I discovered similar items from the WWII era, with "May the Lord be with You" - but what of earlier periods?
