This is a lovely little antique religious prayer book titled, "The Book of Common Prayer...And Administration of the Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church...According to the use of The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America...Together with The Psalter or Psalms of David". This hardcover book has 566 pages in all. The cloth cover has a lightly embossed cross. This book may have been used in church, as the first page (the inside cover) is hand-signed with the words, "Trinity Church Rensselaerville, N.Y.". In regards to this church, I believe it was originally built in 1815 and is still standing and in use today. This prayer book is in good condition, but must have been treasured and repeatedly used, as it does show some signs of age-appropriate wear. There are a few stains on the inner cover and first pages. There are two torn pages in the middle of the book: pg. 551/552 (torn and partially missing) and pg. 251/252 (torn but intact). The binding is secure and in good condition but the front cover may be beginning to pull away from the spine of the book a tiny bit. The spine's back cover is still tight. This book has a copyright of December 12, 1892.Height - 5 5/8" Width - 3 ¾" Depth - 1"
