A charming miniature Common Prayer, this copy bound with Joshua Reynolds' Angel's Heads (painted in 1786) in high relief in ivorine (an artificial substance made to look like ivory).
Fair condition only. The inner binding is quite heavily worn and pulled in places. The leather to the spine is quite well rubbed but the upper board is in good condition and remains a very nice example.
