"The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Church of England together with the Psalter or Psalms of David. Pointed as they are to be Sung or said in Church". Printed by John Baskett in 1715. It seems likely that this was originally intended for the use of the clergy during church services, but was used as a 'Family Bible' from 1745. Bound in full leather with embossed decoration to both boards and the spine, which has raised bands. Much of the decoration is now obscure through use. There are no external titles. There is considerable wear to the outside, but the binding is still strong and secure. The leather binding is worn away at the corners of the boards, the top and bottom of the spine and the end of the bands on the spine. The edges of the spine are cracked at the top 3 inches to the front and the bottom 3 inches at the back. Internally, both hinges, front and back, are cracked. All pages are present and secure, but there is considerable tanning, staining and foxing throughout. This does not, however, affect the clarity of the text. The first fifteen pages have been reinforced with strip down the fore edges, resulting in some loss of text here. Some of these pages have also been reinforced in the same manner along their bottom edges. Elsewhere throughout the book, pages have been reinforced in this way, but in the body of the book this has been done to avoid obscuring the text. The paste downs have various seemingly random jottings in ink on them. The first free endpaper has a handwritten list of the offspring (7 in all) of Jonathan and Catherine Crookes and their dates of birth (between 1745 and 1762). The binding internally is secure. No pagination.
