Publisher: A Paris, chez de Hansy
Condition: Very Good
An extremely scarce late 18th century edition of Spiritual Present Given by Piety, containing prayers, the Latin-French Mass, & offices for all purposes, adorned with Christian emblems & mottos.

Worldcat records one existing copy of this edition in libraries.
This copy is present in an extravagant red morocco binding, with gilt tooling to the edges and spine, along with tulip designs to the corners, and a large flower at the center. The designs are reminiscent of work by binders such as Louis Douceur, ND Derome, or even Padeloup Jeune.

On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the binding, namely to the hinges and corners. There is some foxing throughout.
