We have offered here, an Antique Leather Bound Book titled "Taylor's Holy Living". This one starts with a short biography of Jeremy Taylor's life, and is followed by his well known "Rule and Exercises of Holy Living". The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living provided a manual of Christian practice, which has retained its place with devout readers. The scope of the work is described on the title-page. it deals with the means and instruments of obtaining every virtue, and the remedies against every vice, and considerations serving to the resisting all temptations, together with prayers containing the whole Duty of a Christian. This volume is bound with a leather spine and corners with lighter tan leather end boards. This one has no publishers name of dates, but more than likely dates to at least the early 1800's. It is in good readable condition, with a tight text block and binding. The leather shows edge and corner wear which is commensurate with the age of the book, and one small tear to one of the leather corners. A nice Antique Book for perusing or just for reference.
