We have a bible printed in 1849 that while the pages are a bit yellowed
along the edges, the centers of the papers are still fairly white. In
fact, the paper is still very supple, and it's held up to us looking
through it from time to time (the cover is in bad shape though. Was my
mom's family bible).
