Beautiful antique Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments for the United Church of England and Ireland. Published by Oxford University Press in 1867. We believe it was rebound at the turn of the 20th century, before the 1920s. We suspect that the book was rebound so it could be personalised and passed on as a gift to a loved one. There is evidence to suggest the book is well travelled, particularly due to a French pricing label dating back to the early 1900s on the penultimate page. This wonderful antique book features a number of mesmerising characteristics such as gilded edges, brass clasp closure and marquetry work where the cover was rebound in wood with inlaid floral motifs which were then painted or cut with pen. Good condition with some mild age related wear around the edges and to the binding on the inside. Measures 8 by 13 cm.
