The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites

£100.00

Product description

The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites
OUP. 1853.

The book of common prayer and administration of the sacraments and other religious rites and ceremonies of the church, according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland: together with the proper lessons for Sundays and other holy-days and a new version of the psalms of David.

Excellent example of nineteenth century bible; compact size - 13 x 8cm. 4cm thick. Fine buckram boards in dark brown with elaborate brass decoration to corners - really attractive. Central brass crucifix (6 x 3cm). The original clasp has broken away and all that remains is the prong at the edge of the front board.

Five raised bands to spine, and title: "Church Services". Clearly the full title was far too lengthy to fit anywhere other than inside the book.
All edges gilt; still with a good shine.

Owner dedication to end paper: "Frances Deacon, presented by J Everest at the request of her Grandmama Frances Everest." This dedication is repeated on the following page in slightly more legible form: J Everest must have regretted writing on the first ep because it instantly behaved like blotting paper. Both dedications are neatly written in scratchy copperplate.

The block is nice and clear, with no markings and a pleasing hint of tanning.
A very nice antique bible that was obviously taken into church every Sunday.
Very good condition but minus original clasp fastening.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
