An a new version of the Psalms of David

Printed at the University Press, Oxford.

Dated M.DCCC.L (1850) at the bottom of the title page.

Complete with fine velvet lined leather case.

Church Services and New Testament included in the book.

The book is bound in fine quality deep maroon velvet, with a gilt shield ' Church Services ' on the front. There is a brass clasp to secure the book closed, which is in perfect working order, and brass edges to the covers. It comes complete with a leather maroon velvet lined carry case, which has a maroon silk ribbon inside which is used to pull the book from the case. The book measures approximately 5" x 3.5" x 1.5" thick (127mm x 90mm x 39mm), and weighs 327g.unpacked.

All three of the closed page edges have a stunning and detailed gauffered edge design.

The book is in a superb, near mint condition, and the case is in excellent condition too, with just a little surface rubbing, but no damage, splits or tears.

The binding is tight with no looseness or loose pages, which are all immaculate, unmarked and undamaged. In fact it appears that the book has not been opened or used at all. The velvet covers are in excellent condition, showing no wear at all, having been protected by the case. The brass edge is very slightly pulled around the clasp hinge. I would say that the book and case have been stored since initial publication and consequently are in such a fine condition.

An rare velvet covered Prayer book and case, with fine gauffered edges and in immaculate condition.
