Buchbeschreibung: 1638. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER. The Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments… London: Robert Barker and the Assignes of John Bill, 1638. Tall quarto, contemporary full calf gilt rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, all edges gilt. $8000.1638 edition of the Book of Common Prayerâ€" the magisterial treasury of ritual, prayer and Scripture that has indelibly shaped the piety and literature of the English-speaking worldâ€" finely printed in extensively ornamented Gothic type and handsomely bound in contemporary calf-gilt.Born of Thomas Cranmer’s desire for liturgical texts upon which all of Europe’s Protestant, English-speaking churches could agree, and which all English-speaking believers could easily comprehend, the Book of Common Prayer, first issued in 1549, has become what Diarmaid MacCulloch calls “one of a handful of texts to have decided the future of a world language.” “Cranmer had been a Cambridge scholar (he had held a lectureship in Biblical studies) and a diplomat, before being plucked by Henry VIII to be archbishop, and he almost certainly did not imagine that he was writing one of the great, abiding works of English literature… But the acute poetry, balanced sonorities, heavy order, and direct intimacy of Cranmer’s prose have achieved permanence, and many of his phrases and sentences are as famous as lines from Shakespeare or the King James Bible” (The New Yorker). Beyond its vocabulary and phraseology, the prayer book is “for most Englishmen second only to the Bible” (PMM 75). Bound with a contemporary edition of Sternhold and Hopkins’ popular metrical psalter. Text mostly set in Gothic type, with large, decorative woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Griffiths 1638:1. STC 16409. Armorial bookplate. Scattered pencil markings and marginalia; contemporary owner signature to leaf [B8v]. Blank leaves bound in between [R4] and [R5], [2C7] and [2C8], [B6] of “Forn and Manner of Making and Consecrating Bishops…” and metrical psalter.Occasional light soiling and dampstaining. Minor expert paper repairs to edges of first and last dozen leaves, only barely affecting printing on title page. A few other minor expert paper repairs, not affecting text. Contemporary calf-gilt handsome. An excellent volume. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 89762

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.

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.

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: The Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1783. Hardcover. In Archetypical Edwards Vellum and with a 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: 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.

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

Buchzustand: Very Good. 1st Edition. 1581 COMPLETE Geneva Breeches BIBLE of Pilgrims+ Book of Common Prayer + Psalms Exceedingly Rare Christopher Barker DATED Title Pages The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress. It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower. This version of the Holy Bible is significant because, of the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public. “Breeches Bible” 1579: translated Genesis 3:7 as “and they sowed figge-tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches.” (This less precise translation was glossed in the margin with a more accurate, albeit longer, translation.) The accepted meaning is “coverings” (the KJV has “aprons”). Title: The Bible. Translated according to the Ebrew and Greeke, and conferred with the best translations in diuers languages. With most profitable annotations And also a most profitable concordance Published: London, Christopher Barker, 1581.

Buchbeschreibung: London: Printed by John Baskett .and by the Assigns of Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills ., 1715., 1715. [20,380],23,[3]pp. terminating at 3A4. Folio (465 x 285 mm). Contemporary black gilt paneled armorial goatskin, heavily gilt extra, a.e.g., marbled endsheets. Engraved frontispiece. Text in double columns, printed in black and red, the whole ruled in red. Spine and upper spine quadrant of upper board restored with black calf, edges of text block smoke-darkened, with occasional shallow isolated penetration into margins, early repair on verso of frontispiece, tidemark in upper forecorner/quadrant of last three text leaves and endleaves, small mend on verso of title at top margin, occasional handsoiling and smudging, a few minor marginal nicks or short tears; in spite of these detractions, in the main a bright, crisp copy. One of two large folio printings of The Book of Common Prayer published by Baskett in 1715, this being the form that terminates at 3A4. This copy was associated with the family and descendants of Henry Clinton, seventh earl of Lincoln (1684 - 1728) and his wife Lucy, daughter of the first Baron Pelham. Inserted in the front are two conjugate sheets of paper (one blank), and laid in are two folio sheets of vellum (a bit stained along the top edges). The latter are occupied on three sides with a manuscript family record, written at various times and in various hands (including births, deaths, marriages, etc) from 1744 through the death in 1794 of Henry Fienes Pelham Clinton, Duke of Newcastle. The first of the inserted paper leaves is of perhaps greater interest, as it bears a fifteen line manuscript account by White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, signed and with his seal, of his baptism at the Parrish of St. James, in Westminster, on 12 February 1718/19, of the Clinton's first son, George, for whom "His Excellent Majestie King George was Graciously Pleased to do this Honour . to stand Godfather in his own Royal Person and to give him His own Royal Name of George." Apart from his clerical responsibilities, Kennett (1660 - 1728) was an active antiquary, with particular interest in events in North America. He assembled a large and important library, and based on that collection, compiled the first attempt at a catalogue of books on North America: BIBLIOTHECAE AMERICANAE PRIMORDIA. AN ATTEMPT TOWARDS LAYING THE FOUNDATION OF AN AMERICAN LIBRARY. London, 1713. His close friendship with Charles Trimnell, bishop of Norwich and one of George I's favorites, secured him the bishopric of Peterborough in 1718. GRIFFITHS 1715.1. ESTC T81463.
