About This Item

London John Baskett, 1717 This copy is described on page 144 of Griffiths' The Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer, several variants with engraved borders. This copy is another variant without engraved borders. Full red morocco with ornate gilt paneling on covers and spine. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. . Octavo. Entirely engraved double-column text with dozens of silver plate engravings by John Sturt. Volvelle on page v missing its paper pointer but otherwise in excellent condition. Some rubbing to extremities of boards and some foxing, as usual. Uniformly toned due to paper quality. A few shallow scratches on back cover. Three or four notations in ink, probably from the early 19th century, on front flyleaf describing book's provenance. A very good copy with many remarkably intricate engravings throughout. John Sturt (1658-1730) was an engraver who specialized in engraving calligraphy and miniatures. He made his living as a book illustrator and produced plates for books such as Francis Bragge's Passion of our Savior (1694) and Charles Perrault's Treatise on the Five Orders of Architecture (1708). His best-known works are the engraved versions of Laurence Howell's The Orthodox Communicant and the present volume. The notations on the pastedown, which may be written in multiple hands, read as follows: "Brabagan"; "W.J. Moore Windsor"; "Presented to my brother C.H. Moore in Portland Place. This book was formerly in the possession of A. Marsden under Secretary of State for Ireland — the father of Mrs. C. H. Moore & brother of Wm. Marsden Esq., many years Secretary of the Admiralty [illegible]. W.M.B."; and, at the bottom of the page, "It is said that silver types were used in printing this book edition which hereafterwards [illegible]. W.M.B."

Our office is located in Los Angeles on West Third Street, between the Beverly Center and Farmer's Market. Though we gave up an open shop after more than thirty years, we welcome serious customers and dealers. We are normally open from 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday.

We feature a stock strong in literature, history, Western philosophy, women's studies, education, history of science and fine printing and artists' books. We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. We have books from the 15th to the 20th century in all prices ranges. We do appraisals for income tax and insurance purposes. We purchase individual books and libraries. Proprietor: Carol Sandberg
