This quality binding of ‘The Book Of Common Prayer’ was printed for Samuel Bagster and Sons and dates to the mid-19th century, circa 1850. The decorative book is bound in wonderful dark brown leather and features a raised five ribbed tooled leather spine, quatre foil lattice work tooled front and rear covers, to the interior marbled end papers, all gilt embossed lozenge page edges and a wonderful ornate gilt clasp which is engraved with the initials ‘G.W’. The book was a birthday gift to G.W from her mother; we find the owner’s inscription from the 24th of September 1854 on the second blank page.

Measuring: Width 4.5 inch (11.5 cm), height 6.75 inch (17 cm), depth 1 5/8 inch (4 cm).

Condition: The clasp opens and closes perfectly. The pages are in good condition with some minor foxing. The first 16 pages are a little loose as the spine is visible along the gutter when viewing the title page. Two of the maps have the routes highlighted in colored ink. There is a small 0.5 inch tear to the leather along the bottom of the spine where it meets the front cover, and a small 0.5 tear to the top of the spine. There is a historic glue repair to the leather at the bottom of the spine where it meets the rear cover.

This is a decorative book that will display excellently.
