Markings on the title page indicate this large family bible was given to the Third Presbyterian Church of Topeka by Catherine Brosamer Briar in memory of her mother, Mary M. Brosamer. The bible was published during the temperance movement of the 1890s and contains a blank page printed with an alcohol abstinence pledge. Mary Brosamer, who was born in Germany in 1876 and immigrated to the United States, most likely used the book. She eventually arrived in Kansas where she resided with her husband George Brosamer and children until her death in 1947.
