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 library. 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. 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.

Buchbeschreibung: [Oxford: T. Wright and W. Gill, 1768]., 1768. [34],[340],[24]pp. [bound with:] A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID FITTED TO THE TUNES USED IN CHURCHES. London: Charles Rivington, 1763. [44 (of 46)]pp. Lacks final leaf. Large folio. Modern speckled calf, gilt, with original gilt morocco label on front cover reading: "King and Queen Parish 1771." Lower half of titlepage in expert facsimile. First and last few leaves repaired in gutter margin; final leaf with some facsimile restoration. Manuscript slips neatly repaired with tissue on verso. Very good. This remarkable copy of the Book of Common Prayer from King and Queen Parish, Maryland, has been annotated with paste-over slips to modify the form of prayer from offering prayers to King George III and his wife to new text praying for the United States. It is an extraordinary piece of evidence demonstrating the impact of newly declared independence on the religious life of the new United States. Though the Lords Baltimore, who established of the colony of Maryland, were Catholic, the colony's charter provided for worship of both Catholic and Protestant. The Anglican congregation at King and Queen Parish was established in 1640, shortly after the colony was founded. The Glorious Revolution of 1688, which ended any chance of Catholicism being reestablished as the official religion in England, paved the way for similar changes in the colonies. In Maryland, which became a royal colony in 1691, the Act of Establishment of 1692 declared the Church of England the official church of the colony, creating thirty Anglican parishes and stripping Catholic citizens of most of their rights. Because the King of England was head of the Anglican Church, members of the Church of England in America faced special difficulties during the American Revolution. Anglican priests, in fact, swore allegiance to the King at their ordination. The Book of Common Prayer offered prayers for the monarch, which could be construed as treason to the American cause. In an effort to remain loyal to the cause of Independence and conform to the new political realities, patriotic American Anglicans set about revising the Book of Common Prayer on the spot. On May 25, 1776 the Maryland Convention voted "that every Prayer and Petition for the King's Majesty, in the book of Common Prayer.be henceforth omitted in all Churches and Chapels in this Province." George Goldie, the rector of Christ Church (then called Chaptico Church) in King and Queen Parish of St. Mary's County from 1773 to his death in 1791, modified the present volume by inserting new prayers, written in manuscript, into the Litany. Four inserted slips modify the Litany to instruct for prayers to guide Congress and the governor of the state, as well as prayers for religious and civil liberty. These are affixed over prayers for King George III, Queen Charlotte, the Prince of Wales, etc. The petition that God "keep and strengthen in the true worshipping of thee, in righteousness and holiness of life, thy servant GEORGE, our most gracious King and Governour" was changed to a plea that "it might please thee to bless the honorable Congress with Wisdom to discern and Integrity to pursue the true Interest of the United States." The prayer that "it may please thee to be his defender and keeper, giving him the victory over all his enemies" becomes "that it [may please thee] to be their defender and keeper, enabling them to be the supporters & guardians of the civil and religious liberty of thy people." A prayer for the royal family is revised to ask that God "bless and preserve his Excel'y the Governor of this state, and so to replenish him with the grace of thy Holy Spirit that he may always incline to thy will and ever seek thy honour and glory." A prayer to "illuminate all Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, with true knowledge and understanding of thy word," now asks "to endue the Members of the Council with grace, wisdom and understanding, that they may become the happy instruments of promoting the honor of God and t.

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.

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.

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 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.

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
