Beautiful prayer book My Key of Heaven from 1900 with fabulous front cover of applied metal strips, one small one missing, and off white angels and decorations of an unknown material which we like a celluloid or similar, angel on left has a missing hand and probably missing wings. All this is mounted on a brown velvet hard binding, and the book has the side metal clasp in working condition. No title on the exterior. Inside of book very usable but in very very used condition, front cover is separated from the book but still attached firmly to the spine and back binding, typical of small books with such a heavy cover, same issues inside the back cover, please look at all the photos. We usually don't offer books with such issues, but the unusual cover, so beautiful, and the age make this quite a rare find in any condition. 320 pages plus The Epistles and Gospels section in the back another 191 pages. Book measures 4 and 1/4" tall , 3" wide and 1 and 1/2" thick. Pages are worn and darkened from age, but still usable, and it is a beautiful book for display for the collector. Book author the right Reverend J. Milner, Nihil Obstat - Remegius Lafort, Imprimatur - Michael Augustine , Archbishop of New York, May 3 1900. Published by J. Steinbrener Winterberg.
