A circular brown mark to the outer margin of four leaves, otherwise a clean and bright copy in a fine early binding, for Hatchards of Piccadilly, probably by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, but not signed. Full brown morocco. Spine with five raised bands. Compartments lettered, double ruled and decorated with triple dot corner design in gilt. Both boards with double ruled gilt outer borders and double ruled inner panel design with dots to the outer line and floral design, with green dyed centre dots, in each corner. Title lettered in gilt to front board. Board edges ruled in gilt. Inner boards with triple gilt ruled borders to the turn-ins. All edges gilt. Previous owner's armorial bookplate to the front paste down endpaper. A very attractive copy. --- This edition omits the fourth book of this work, concerning the Roman Catholic mass.
