Title: A right Christian treatise, entituled S. Augustines praiers; bound with S. Augustines manuel, 1591
Author: Saint Augustine of Hippo (Allegedly)
Publisher: Imprinted at London, By Richard Yardley and Peter Short
A late 16th century edition of Saint Augustines praiers, bound with Augustines manuel.
This volume contains gauffered fore edges.
Two works bound into one volume in 16mo, (5)+218+(24),
On note of condition, this volume is in in poor shape, with the binding in abysmal shape, a defective spine, heavy chipping to the boards, and a detached rear board. The title is chipped and soiled, and loss to the margins of leaves A2 and 3. S. Augustines Manuel is entirely defective, hanging on by a single point, with several detached gatherings and pages misbound, lacking pages 13-16, 59-60, and bizarrely featuring additional pages from another copy of S. Augustines Manuel to replace pages missing from 61-81, although some appear to be duplicate leaves from page 35 onwards. There is browsing and soiling throughout.
