    Presumed first edition. Small octavo. xxii, 166 pages. Illustrated throughout with finely engraved initials, Biblical scenes, and portraits. With the often missing volvelle depicting "the moveable Sundays of the year" and the advertisement page at end.

    Full red leather with elaborate gilt decorations to spine, covers and turn-ins. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Leather lightly rubbed and extremities somewhat worn. Some toning and foxing to pages, as expected. Inked gift inscription to first blank page. Binding tight and sturdy. Overall, this is a very good copy of an early 18th century book.
