The Book of Common Prayer
with engraved brass clasp and ivorine boards
Pocket edition, leather spine with ivorine boards. Brass clip engarved with "Sis", all edges gilt. 10 × 5.5cm, unpaginated.
A charming pocket Common Prayer, with a previous owner's inscription to match the engraving (Sis from Bert, Oct 9 1898). The text is printed in red and black with a red margin to each page.
Generally good condition. There is quite heavy foxing to the prelims which becomes more sporadic to the main body of text. Age related wear to the ivorine but otherwise a decent survival.
