Buchbeschreibung: 1637. "(BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER). The Booke of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments. Edinburgh: Robert Young, 1637; Thomas Harper, 1636. Quarto, early 19th-century full polished paneled tan calf gilt rebacked with orignal spine laid down, raised bands. $13,500.First edition of the first Scottish Book of Common Prayer—the book that became a harbinger of the English Civil War—beautifully printed in Gothic type, with decorative woodcut initials throughout, handsomely bound."In the 1630s events in the Scottish Church moved towards crisis. In 1633, using an elaborate English form of ritual, Charles was crowned at Edinburgh. Three years later, new ecclesiastical canons were drawn up for the kingdom. They enforced church furnishings of the English type, strengthened the powers of the bishops [and] excommunicated any person who challenged the King's supremacy in church matters. Matters came to a head in 1637 with the attempted introduction of a Scottish Book of Common Prayer drafted by Scottish bishops following the advice of Archbishop Laud. It takes a higher view of church practice than its English counterpart [and] contains undertones of prayers for the dead and the eucharistic sacrifice. Its attempted introduction at St. Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh on July 16, 1637 ended in riot, and the Scottish Council promptly suspended the book" (Aspects of the Western Religious Heritage 25). Charles I overrode the Scottish Council, insisting on enforcement of the Scottish prayer book. His order began the chain of events that led to his downfall and eventual execution; in February 1638, Scottish committees which had formed to protest Laud's Book of Common Prayer convened to sign the National League and Covenant, repudiating royal authority in Scotland. Two years later the English parliament was recalled, and by 1642 the English Civil War had begun. The majority of the text in large Gothic type, with beautiful woodcut initials throughout. Both title pages within typographical borders; first title page and Almanack printed in red and black. Without two suppressed leaves of "Certaine Godly Prayers" ([R7]-[R8]), almost never present. Bound with second edition of Psalter (no catchword at leaf [2k6v]—that gathering intended to be in eight leaves, but leaves [2k7]-[8] cancelled in most copies, including this one). Griffiths 1637:9. STC 16606, 16607. Mild marginal dampstaining to first two and final two gatherings, scattered throughout rest of text block. Minor paper restoration toward gutter of prayer book title page. Small abrasion to rear board. A near-fine copy, handsomely bound.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers 108001

The material came from exotic marine turtles and was valued due to its beauty, shine and rarity -the name tortoiseshell can therefore be misleading because the material has nothing to do with land tortoises-.

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.

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.

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.

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: Oxford: Printed by T. Wright and W. Gill, Printers to the University, 1769., 1769. [206] leaves (printed in double columns) plus fifty-nine full-page engraved plates. Tall quarto. 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: London: James Burns., 1843. INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM AND MARY WORDSWORTH. Small quarto, unpaginated. Finely printed in Gothic script with red headings and capitals. Formally INSCRIBED by William and Mary Wordsworth to her nephew, the Rev. George Hutchinson, as a legacy in consideration of his efforts to secure a position at the Cathedral of Carlisle. Written in black ink to fly-leaf, most likely in Mary's hand. In contemporary dark brown full morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, stamped by the publisher to base of spine. All edges gilt; marbled endpapers. Spine and fore-edges rubbed; very good indeed. George Hutchinson was the son of Mary Wordsworth's younger brother Thomas Hutchinson. Following his ordination, George seems to have tried and failed to secure a sought-after position at the Cathedral of Carlisle, near his family in the Lake District, and instead was offered a comfortable rural post in the spa town of Malvern, Worcestershire, through the influence of the Wordsworths. A decade on, in 1853, George left Malvern following a relationship collapse and near-total breakdown, crossing the Atlantic to become a minister on the coast of Labrador in Canada. His descendants later moved to Newfoundland. 'The Telegram (St John's)', 17th August 2008. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 48728

The Bible That is the Holy Scriptures: RELIGION],

Buchbeschreibung: Robert Barker, London, 1608. Hardcover. Quarto. rebound to style, full brown leather with fillet inlay on covers, spine with raised bands, two burgundy morocco spine labels lettered in gilt, gilt in compartments, all edges gilt. "The Book of Common Prayer" was printed by Thomas and John Buck, printers to the Universitie of Cambridge [England], 1630. First printed in 1560, the "Geneva" version is so called because it was translated by W. Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, Thomas Sampson, and perhaps others, at Geneva. This Bible showed a distinct advance on its predecessors, and appearing as it did in more compact form, with roman type, and verse divisions, obtained speedy and permanent popularity. Between 1560 and 1644 at least one hundred and forty editions appeared of the Geneva Bible or Testament. Examination of King James's Bible of 1611 shows that its translators in correcting the Bishop's Bible were influenced more by the Geneva than any other English version.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, for the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public. "Breeches Bible": translated Genesis 3:7 as "and they sowed figge-tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches." (This less precise translation was glossed in the right margin with a more accurate, albeit longer, translation.). Spine faded to very light brown, margins of leaves a little trimmed not affecting text or illustrations. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 33668

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.
