Each separate song has the printer information at the bottom of the last leaf, leaving me to wonder if this was originally issued as a part work ? Complete. The red boards have a touch of darkening and a little marking to them, but presentable. The leather and gilt are clean and bright. Internally in sound, strong condition, but with moderate foxing throughout. The text and illustrations are still strongly visible through the foxing though. Trois volumes en demi cuir rouge et dorure d'époque (récemment restaurés) à plats rouges. Planches marbrées. Trois tomes. 1) Chants Guerriers et Patriotiques. Chansons Bachiques. 2) Chansons et Chansonnettes. Chansons Burlesques et Satériques. 3) Chansons Choisies. Romances, Rowdes et Compaites. Chaque volume comporte deux pages de titre gravées ainsi que la page de titre imprimée. Chacune des chansons est composée de quatre feuilles / 8 faces, a son titre, avec des crédits pour la musique et des illustrations - Il y a de la musique, des paroles et de belles gravures pour chaque chanson. Chaque chanson séparée a les informations de l'imprimante au bas de la dernière feuille, me laissant me demander si cela a été publié à l'origine en tant que travail partiel ? Compléter. Les planches rouges ont une touche d'assombrissement et un peu de marquage, mais présentables. Le cuir et la dorure sont propres et brillants. Intérieur en bon état, solide, mais avec des rousseurs modérées partout. Le texte et les illustrations sont encore fortement visibles à travers les rousseurs.

  • The Book of Common Prayer: by [ANON]
    [ANON]
    The Book of Common Prayer: And Administration of the Sacraments, and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church, according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland, together with the Psalter or Psalms of David.

    Edition: Reprint

    Oxford University Press, 1866. Contemporary full bone / ivory binding (boards, spine and clasp). Purple silk end papers. All edges gilt. Printed throughout in red and black. The book is held in a black leather covered box with metal catch. (box probably later). Antique Ivory (worked prior to 1947) is legal to own.

    Condition: A very nice example of bone / ivory binding. The clasp is sound, but the catch on the front board is missing (so it doesn't click shut). There is a thin crack to the base of the spine. Otherwise, the binding is clean and tidy. The silk end papers are clean and tidy, but have just a touch of rubbing to the edges. The rest of the book are clean and tidy throughout. The black box is somewhat rubbed but still holding well. The catch on the box is still fully working.
