1865 Book Of Common Prayer Decorative Binding

Wonderful antique Book of Common Prayer, published by Ashmead & Evans, Philadelphia, dated 1866, with 1865 gift inscription inside on ffep to original owner for Christmas. It has a lovely royal blue cloth binding with brass framing, clasp, and four corner crosses on the front plus a center large cross, truly lovely. The book measures 3 & 7/8" tall, 2 & 1/2" wide and 1" thick. The page outer edges are gold tipped and the clasp is in good working order. Binding appears sturdy and strong, interior clean with mild age darkening as expected. No title on spine. Some dark spots on the navy cloth here and there; we have not tried to clean the book at all, will leave that to the new owner. Very lovely and very useful size prayer book.
