The Birthday Book of the Sacred Heart
1891, with unused calendar pages
Eighth edition, small hardback bound in blue cloth with gilt and silver decoration to spine and upper board. All edges gilt. 12.5 × 9cm, unpaginated.
A nice pocket book calendar, the days of the year are left blank to fill in friends and family birthdays, and opposite each page is a selection of "maxims of the saints and servants of God in honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in prose and verse".
The cloth is lightly rubbed and the pages are lightly foxed throughout and whilst there is a gift inscription at the front of the book, none of the blank pages have been filled in so it is effectively unused.
