The Book of Common Prayer, Psalms and New Testament
All bound in one, dated 1861—1862, full leather
Hardback, full leather with five raised bands to spine, fleur de lys and floral margin design to boards, metal edging to boards and clasp (working). All edges gilt. 12.5 × 7.5cm, unpaginated.
A nice, if somewhat worn, copy of The Book of Common Prayer, bound with two sets of Psalms and a New Testament. The second Psalms bound in at the rear are dated 1861. The New Testament is undated but all are published by the University Press, Oxford.
A charming prayer book, but the metal is tarnished and the leather rubbed. The hinges are weakening but all pages still attached. The rear endpaper is torn.
