Buchbeschreibung: 1871. 8vo., finely bound after a design by William Burges in full tan morocco, ruled in black, with five brass mounted semi-precious stones on each board, with two elaborate brass clasps with enamel coats of arms of Lord and Lady Ripon and each set with a semi-precious stone, all by Jes Barkentin, watered silk endpapers, all edges gilt. Just a little rubbing to binding otherwise a very good copy. A handsome piece of high Victorian design by William Burges, one of the pre-eminent figures of Victorian mediaeval revival, for Lord and Lady Ripon. Studley Royal and St Mary's Church were built for the Ripons between 1871 and 1878. Designed by William Burges it has been described variously as "a dream of Early English glory" and "one of the most perfect churches in the kingdom". Pevsner called it Burges's "ecclesiastical masterpiece." As with his project at Skelton-on-Ure for Lady Mary Vyner, Burges oversaw the whole design from the building itself to the fittings and fixtures. J. Mordaunt Crook comments "Skelton is Picturesque; Studley Royal approaches the Sublime." A series of designs for this binding can be found in the William Burges album "Orfà vrerie Domenstique" in the RIBA kibrary. The binding design on this Prayer Book is directly comparable to another binding he designed for a Prayer Book for Sir Alexander James Beresford Beresford Hope. This was sold at Bonhams in 2009 and now resides in the National Museum Cardiff. It too has metalwork by Jes Barkentin with whom Burges worked closely throughout his career. A bracelet in the Higgins Bedford collection, also by Barkentin, has matching settings with those on this Prayer Book. Loosely inserted is an autograph letter on Winchester Close headed paper, initialled AED which erroneously states "These two books were designed by Mr Edmund Street & presented to Lady Ripon for Studley Church at the time that Lord Ripon went over to the Roman Catholic Church. AED March 4 1922". The story behind the commissioning of the chapels at Studley Royal and Skelton comes from a tragic event. A close friend of the Ripons, Frederick Grantham Vyner, had been kidnapped by Greek bandits during an expedition to Marathon. A ransom of a million drachmas was demanded in return for his release and that of his seven companions. After a fortnight's negotiations, armed troops were sent in to rescue the hostages. During a running gun battle Vyner and three of his friends were shot dead. Vyner's mother, Lady Mary Vyner, and her sister Lady Ripon, decided to use the unspent ransom money for the contruction of two churches on their neighbouring estates, Christ the Consoler at Skelton-on-Ure and St Marys at Studley Royal.

Extremities worn. Small piece of titlepage torn away at fore edge, affecting border and two letters of text. Light tanning and foxing. A good copy. In a half morocco box. The American Protestant Episcopal Church was founded after the American Revolution as an adaptation of the Church of England in the new United States. The church was founded at a convention in Philadelphia in 1785, at which it was agreed to create a separate prayer book. The present title is the result, and it caused great controversy upon its publication. Among the ill- considered revisions were "changes and omissions of such drastic nature as among other things the deletion of the Nicene and Athanasian Creeds. The Proposed Book proved unwelcome to clergy and laity, even its suggestion of a prayer for the Fourth of July being taken exception to. Its use was brief and not general" (Page). "This edition, contains the alterations which were intended to adapt the Book of Common Prayer, of the Church of England, to the changed political conditions of this country; and is the result of a convention held in Philadelphia, in 1785, presided over by the Reverend William White. The proposed Prayer Book met with much criticism and opposition in the church, owing to its radical changes, and was never adopted." - Evans. EVANS 19940. PAGE, THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 51.

Lownes and R. Young];, Edinburgh, 1633. [94] pp. A-F8 (-A1); [40] pp. A-B8 C-D2. Woodcuts charts, map, title-border; [900]pp. A-2X8 2Y4; 3A-3L8 3M4. Engraved title and frontis, and separate title for NT; [100]pp. *2 A-F8; [10], 93, [3]pp (with errors in numbering). A-F8 G4.With music. 1 vols. 8vo. First Complete Scottish King James Bible and First Edinburgh Book of Common Prayer. An uncommon lot, including the first complete King James Bible printed in Scotland, and the first Edinburgh edition of the Book of Common Prayer. The Bible follows a separate printing of the New Testament in 1628. This edition, it is suggested, was printed in connection with the Coronation of Charles I in Edinburgh in June 1633. Some copies of this printing of the New Testament were accompanied by plates, but these were later additions (ca. 1638), and there are two settings of some of the sheets, which are frequently comingled. In this copy, the catchword at 3G1 is "But"; 2F6v has the reading "carkases"; the catchword at 3G1r is "37 But"; and the headline on 3K3r is "Of Widows." The Book of Common Prayer is the form with catchword "pride" at B1r, and anticipates the ill-fated 1637 revision for the Church of Scotland. The editions of Genealogies, the Concordance, and the Psalms are contemporary editions of the sort that are characteristically found bound with various editions of the Bible originating from London and elsewhere. The Edinburgh Bible is scarce: ESTC locates five copies in North America: Folger, Huntington, NYPL, Newberry and Univ. of Pennsylvania. The Prayer book is also uncommon, with three copies located in North America (Harvard, Huntington and this copy, now properly deaccessioned). Of the Psalms, four copies are located in North America: Folger, LC, UT, and again, this copy. ESTC S123370; S122895; S102072; S90766; and S122325. STC 16394; 2311 & 2311a; 23039e; and 2608. Darlow & Moule (Herbert) 476 Rumball-Petre 135. Griffiths 1633.8 Later gilt paneled mottled calf, gilt spine label, marbled endsheets, to contemporary style. Bookplate of Joseph Yates, Clanna House. Trimmed rather close throughout, frequently costing register and/or page numbers, some head lines and a few catchwords; some scattered loss of some bottom lines late in the N.T., early ink inscription on first title, small discoloration to first several leaves, stain to lower fore-corners of 2M8 and 2N1, some occasional foxing, soiling and minor spotting, lacking A1 (blank) to BoCP; withal, a reasonably good gathering, neatly bound [94] pp. A-F8 (-A1); [40] pp. A-B8 C-D2. Woodcuts charts, map, title-border; [900]pp. A-2X8 2Y4; 3A-3L8 3M4. Engraved title and frontis, and separate title for NT; [100]pp. *2 A-F8; [10], 93, [3]pp (with errors in numbering).

Buchbeschreibung: Printed for the Convention, New York, 1893. Copy no. 5 of the limited issue. Copy no. 5 of the limited issue. [28], 566, [2] pp. 1 vols. Folio. LIMITED ISSUE, SIGNED BY J.P. MORGAN ET AL. Copy number 5 of the limited issue of the revised Book of Common Prayer, overseen by D.B. Updike, and signed in ink on the verso of the title of many of the principals associated with the revision approved at the 1892 General Convention, including financier J.P. Morgan, who helped fund the edition's publication. The limited edition was prepared in two forms, one being this form, intended for distribution to each diocese and jurisdiction within the Church, with original signatures on the verso of the title and with a variant title, all in black letter, without border. The standard limited edition of 500 copies on handmade paper has the signatures of the principals in printed facsimile, and a foliated border around the title resembling those around the main text, and the central "Laudate Dominum" device, and the two lines: "Together with the Psalter or Psalms of David." Updike comments at length on this project in his introduction to NOTES ON THE MERRYMOUNT PRESS, and about his role in the attempted rescue of an ill-conceived attempt to produce a decorated edition from the plates of the 1892 printing: "The best things about the book were the cover and charming end-papers which Goodhue designed for it. Sad to relate, the edition had an immediate and resounding success! We were congratulated, and we blushed. Our shame was taken for modesty and we were congratulated more! While the book is indeed a strange one, it is by no means so strange as the designs originally made for it" (see pp. 9-10). Nonetheless, the experience was an important prelude to the production in 1928 of Updike's own edition, widely regarded as his finest work. Laid into this copy is the 4pp. leaflet, ON THE DECORATIONS OF THE LIMITED EDITION OF THE STANDARD PRAYER BOOK OF MDCCCXCII, and tipped to the second blank is the original bifolium printed presentation slip, with the recipient denoted in manuscript (a now defunct divinity school). Original heavily gilt decorated vellum over boards, with brass fore-clasps, t.e.g., others untrimmed, ribbon marker. Printed in red and black, with floriated borders by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, title in black letter. Binding slightly rubbed, gilt bright; some bleed-through on the title from the array of original ink signatures on the verso, otherwise very good or somewhat better [28], 566, [2] pp. 1 vols. Folio.

Buchbeschreibung: Printed for the Commission, MDCCCCXXVIII (Boston, 1930)., 1930. 9 1/2 x 13 1/2. xli, 611 pages printed in black & red. Full crimson pigskin stamped in black, top edge gilt. Still in the original plain dustwrapper, albeit missing a few pieces and one flap detached. A miniscule touch of rubbing to lower edge, else as new. With the 8-page folio prospectus. D. B. Updike's magnum opus. Of 500 copies printed on handmade paper, only 250 were for sale. Several notable printers--including Bruce Rogers and the University presses of Cambridge and Oxford-- were invited to submit designs and trial pages for this prayer book. The competition was overseen by J. P. Morgan, Jr,'s librarian Belle da Costa Greene. But as Hutner and Kelly observe "Few printers were better equipped than this devout Anglican to handle the project, and the result was magnificent. For Updike it was the culmination of everything he believed in and understood, and every facet of his personality and sensibility was called upon to produce this masterpiece of print and spirit."

Buchbeschreibung: The Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1783. Hardcover. In Archetypical Edwards Vellum and with a Fore-Edge Painting Probably Done at the Time. 140 x 83 mm (5 1/2 x 3 1/4"). [216], [48] unnumbered leaves. VERY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY VELLUM OVER BOARDS, ALMOST CERTAINLY BY EDWARDS OF HALIFAX, covers bordered by a Neoclassical pentaglyph and metope roll against a blue wash, center of each board with large gilt-bordered medallion containing the gilt monogram "M L C" on a blue background, flat spine divided into panels by gilt pentaglyph and metope border (the one at the bottom over blue wash), panels with classical urn centerpiece and volute cornerpieces, second panel with gilt titling on a blue background, turn-ins with gilt chain roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING, VERY PROBABLY BY EDWARDS, depicting Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire. IN THE ORIGINAL (rubbed and soiled, but quite intact) soft green LEATHER SLIPCASE. Title page with ink ownership inscription of M: L: Carey. Griffiths 1783/6. Spine gilt slightly dulled in places, rear turn-in lifting a little at one corner, title and a couple of gatherings with moderate foxing, but still quite an excellent copy, the binding showing no wear, the text clean and fresh, and the painting well preserved. This is an immensely pleasing little book in period vellum produced by one of the most important families in the history of English bookbinding. The Edwards of Halifax bindery was founded by William Edwards (1723-1808) and continued by several of his brothers, half-brothers, and sons (by far the most important of the sons being Thomas, who lived from 1762-1834). This famous firm produced a number of important innovations in binding design, the most significant being the idea of concealing a painting under the gilt of the fore edge. This hidden treasure could be revealed, once the edge was fanned out, as a special surprise element of the volumes they bound--typically in Etruscan calf, or, as in the present case, in vellum decorated with gilt and blue wash. The painting here is rendered in the subtle hues typical of Edwards paintings--soft grays and greens, in this instance--and the scenic ruins are one of the favored Edwards subjects, second only to stately homes. For these reasons, we speculate that it may well have been done at or near the time of publication. In any case, our painting is particularly pleasing for its sense of depth, partly accomplished both by clever use of shadow and by considerable finely painted three-dimensional architectural detail.

Buchbeschreibung: Hardcover. Buchzustand: Good.

Books from Taylor's library are very rare indeed. From the collection of Dr. John Lattimer. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 000802

Original vellum over beveled boards with brass clasps; the upper cover elaborately gilt with central panel of Tudor roses enclosed by a border of text within gilt rules; spine likewise gilt; top edges gilt, others untrimmed. A few protruding deckles dusty, otherwise the text is immaculate. Ribbon marker loose. Some cover soil, especially to the lower, unadorned cover, but very little wear. Avery good plus copy. With D. B. Updike's 4-page "On the Decorations of the Limited Edition of the Standard Book of Prayer MDCCCXCII." One of 500 large paper copies on American handmade paper printed in red and black at the De Vinne Press. Typographic design, plan of symbolism, & method of decoration were planned by D. B. Updike. Bertram Goodhue designed the binding, gilt endpapers, and foliate borders. Only the borders for Good Friday are simple black rules. The Easter Sunday border, by contrast, blazes with lilies. Updike, who at first refused this commission, takes great pains in his essay to explain the difficulties of combining Medieval borders with modern type and his resolution of this problem. He gives a detailed analysis of all the ornamentation. Some official copies for the clergy were printed without borders. To his foreman, De Vinne wrote "Try to make these books a faultless piece of work. Spare no time or expense.Much of our work is trivial and ephemeral, but this will last."

Buchbeschreibung: Printed for the Convention by the De Vinne Press, New York, 1893. Hardcover. Buchzustand: g to vg. Limited "canonical edition". 1/75. Folio. [28], 566, [2]pp. Uncut. Original heavily gilt decorated vellum, with brass clasps. Decorative endpapers. Ribbon marker. Laid into this copy is the publisher's original 4pp. leaflet, "On the Decorations of the Limited Edition of the Standard Prayer Book of MDCCCXCII." Title page in red and black lettering, handsigned in ink on the verso by thirteen of the principals associated with the revision approved at the 1892 General Convention. Pages in red and black lettering, within floriated borders by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. Limited large-paper canonical edition, one of 75 copies (one for each judicatory of the Protestant Episcopal Church) of the 1892 American "Book of Common Prayer," signed by all members of the prayer book revision committee, including important financier J.P. Morgan. This copy is No. 18. Source of the Anglican Church's shared liturgical life since 1549, the "Book of Common Prayer" was first adapted for use in America in 1789, and underwent its second American revision in 1892. The new Standard, as it was called, was issued in three formats: a simple copy for attendees of the 1892 General Convention (Griffiths 1892:5); a decorative edition of 500 numbered copies (Griffiths 1893:7); and this limited "canonical edition," numbering 75 copies, distributed to all Episcopalian judicatories (Griffiths 1893:6; But One Use 95). "Throughout his life, [financier J.P.] Morgan was a strong supporter of the Protestant Episcopal church" (ANB), support that included his service on the revision committee that produced the 1892 revision. In a contemporary review, "The Independent," an Episcopal church newspaper, declared: "That the completed and perfected Standard, just issued from the De Vinne press, appears in the sumptuous form which makes it confessedly the finest production of the American printer's art is due to Mr. J. Pierpoint Morgan, who from the moment of his appointment as a member of the committee has never ceased devising liberal things for the furtherance of the work." Some foxing and soiling along edges of binding. Offsetting on front cover of the publisher's booklet. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition.

Contemporary black morocco (almost imperceptibly rebacked with original backstrip laid down); front and rear covers extensively decorated in gilt, 1 5/8-inch wide dentelle-style border of alternating large and thin vases holding flowers, within which is an elaborate central diamond-shape design composed of floral and rococo tools with two pairs of backward-looking tufted birds on branches, surrounded by floral and star-like tools; a.e.g. On the front cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "The Honorable Samuel Rous Esq. Barbados," surrounded by a stylized fern border. On the rear cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "One Thousand Seven Hundred & Seventy Two," also surrounded by a stylized fern border. Spine in six compartments with raised bands, extensively decorated in gilt with flowers, stars, circles, and different birds than on the covers. Inner dentelles gilt with "Greek key" roll, contemporary marbled pastedowns and free endpapers. Two corners rubbed and two corners almost imperceptibly repaired, otherwise in fine condition. Extra-illustrated with fifty-nine full- page engraved plates. A few minor dampstains on a few leaves at front and rear and occasional minor foxing, absolutely not affecting text or images. [bound with:] Brady, N., and N. Tate: A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, FITTED TO THE TUNES USED IN CHURCHES. London: H. Woodfall, 1768. [26] leaves (printed in triple columns). A fine copy. A magnificently bound and extravagantly extra-illustrated copy of The Book of Common Prayer, prepared for presentation to, or perhaps commissioned by, Samuel Rous, President of His Majesty's Council and Commander-in-Chief (i.e. governor) of Barbados, from 1766 to 1768. He also served again in 1772, the year indicated on the rear cover. The Rous family, Quakers residing in Barbados, were leading planters on the island since the late 1630s. The fifty-nine plates bound in this volume to complement the text were originally executed for THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ILLUSTRATED WITH FIFTY NINE HISTORICAL AND EXPLANATORY SCULPTURES, ENGRAVED BY MESS. RAVENETT, GRIGNION, SCOTIN, CANOTT, WALKER, AND W. RYLAND, printed in London in 1755 by Edward Ryland. According to the titlepage, included here as one of the extra-illustrated plates, this work was published according to an act of Parliament on May 1, 1755. However, no copies of this 1755 title are recorded in OCLC or ESTC. In addition to The Book of Common Prayer and the engravings from THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, this copy also contains a 1768 edition of A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, first printed in 1698. Considering the recipient and the combined contents of the volume, these two texts and the extensive suite of engravings are bound in an appropriately sumptuous binding. Prepared for Samuel Rous, who served as governor of Barbados, the binding is a marvelous example of later 18th-century British bookbinding, with extensive gilt decoration on the covers and spine as described above. A fine copy of an elaborately decorated and illustrated volume, with a remarkable colonial-era provenance. GRIFFITHS, BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 1769.5. Buchnummer des Verkäufers WRCAM 36078

Buchbeschreibung: Daniel + Barker + Daniel 1648-1682, London and Cambridge, 1648. Large 18mo. Very attractive contemporary Amsterdam binding of smooth calf, gilt, spine in compartments, covers with floral border, within which rich decoration comprising various floral and foliage tools, all edges gilt. Top compartment of spine somewhat worn (affecting part of gilt decoration), trifle wear to binding extremities; top edge of first endleaf torn away, 1" of lower corner of A2 torn affecting text. Normal age-toning to text. COLLATION: Book of Common Prayer: A16 [para]2 B-D18 E12 = 80 ff. (not in ESTC; the distinctive collation and imprint is simply not recorded therein). Bible: A-Y18 Z6 Aa2 = 808 pp. Darlow & Moule 615. Book of Psalms: A-B18 = 36 ff. ESTC R35754. Fine contemporary Dutch binding by the Amsterdam "Quatrefoil Bindery," curious because it covers an English Bible / Book of Common Prayer. For obvious reasons, these texts would have been used only by a member of the Anglican church; the present texts must have been exported to The Netherlands, for reasons now unknown, where they were beautifully bound. According to Jan Storm van Leeuwen (private communication), the present binding belongs to the Amsterdam Quatrefoil Bindery ("Vierpasbinderij"), active from 1675-1725 (see below). The present binding was certainly executed very near the date of publication 1682. Fine examples of 17th-century English Prayer books in elaborately decorated Dutch bindings are very uncommon. The British Library possesses two fine Dutch bindings on English imprints -- neither are sacred texts -- namely: Thomas Herbert, Numismata antiqua (London, 1746) bound by the Van Damme Bindery (BL 138B10) and Gabriele Faerno, Fabulae centum (London, 1743) bound by the Double Drawer Handle Tools Bindery (BL 141C11). LITERATURE: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding in the eighteenth century, vol. I, pp. 199-217. Very good antiquarian condition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1367

Thomas Sternhold (died 1570) was the originator of the first generally accepted metrical version of the Psalms in England and Scotland. His earliest versions were probably composed during the reign of Henry VIII, but the only edition published in his lifetime was during the reign of Edward VI. The second edition, printed after his death, included seven extra psalms by John Hopkins. According to the Dictionary of National Biography : 'In the opinion of learned men of the time metrical versions more nearly represented the structure of the Hebrew psalms than prose, and for singing metre was a necessity. Sternhold . wished to substitute the Psalms of David for the "obscene" ballads of the court and people. Sternhold and Hopkins's version has had a larger circulation than any work in the language, except the authorised version of the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 096621
