Condition: Very Good
A late 18th century edition of the Book of Common Prayer, bound with the Psalms of David, bound with the Whole Book of Psalms.
This volume has been finely bound in gilt tooled red 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.
Three works finely bound in octavo, largely unpaginated
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and some scuffing to the binding, with a small gash to the rear board, and the crest faded in some spots. There is virtually no foxing or staining throughout.
