The Christian Daily Text Book and Birthday Record, No. 1 in the series of Birthday Treasure books published by Ward Lock & Co.

A very good copy of one of these popular late Victorian Souvenir and gift books. This features, as the title suggests, a quote from the Bible against every day of the year and a space for a persons name to be written indicating their birthday.

The covers are of Mauchline Ware made of sycamore wood, the front featuring a print of a white rose and "Remember Me" with a four line sentimental verse, the back being plain. The spine is, I believe, leather and is gold blocked 'Daily Text Book'. The page edges are gilt and the text block sewn in. Contains the original owners name (Jessie Liddel) in ink with the date 1884. Also names in ink against various dates. A nice piece of social history.

Size: 4. 3/8" (11cm) x 2. 7/8" (7cm) x 3/4" (2cm) approximately Condition: Very good, a few minor scuff marks to the boards and very occasional foxing, There was an error in making the book in that the last few pages are upside down, it also has a faint smell of age.

Please see other Mauchline ware items I have for sale.
