Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur 1925. The table of movable feasts starts with 1940, so I assume that this was printed in 1939. It has 754 pages. 4" x 6 1/2" x almost 1" thick. Genuine soft leather cover with gold imprint. Gold edged pages. 2 ribbon markers.

CONDITION: This book is prayerfully worn, but is still in very usable condition. The leather cover has wear along the edges. T is a handwritten inscription from Christmas 1950, and then a previous owners name which was whited out. Other than this, I see no writing or markings in the book. Some of the pages near the front of the book have a bit of waviness or slight wrinkling. I noticed one page with a small tear, but it did not reach into the text. The binding is good and tight. I detect n o odors.

As the title indicates, this is an all-purpose and very complete prayer book and missal. It contains the prayers, litanies, and litanies that are familiar to Catholics. I will give a brief listing of the contents:
