Condition: Very Good
A late 18th century edition of the Book of Common Prayer, bound with the Psalms of David.
This volume has been finely bound in tooled black morocco and bears the gilt crest and bookplate of the Bertie Family, Earls of Abingdon and Lindsey, and once the Dukes of Ancaster and Kesteven. Their lineage goes back as far as the 15th century and possibly earlier, with Richard Bertie and Katherine Willoughby being recorded in Foxes Book of Martyrs during the 16th century. There is also the bookseller's ticket for John Bally.
Two finely bound works in octavo, unpaginated
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with some rubbing and wear to the binding, namely to the hinges and edges of the covers. There is virtually no foxing or staining throughout.
