There are black and white reproductions of pictures of St. Anne, prayers, stories of healed people, a history of devotion to her, the Solemn Novena, hymns to St. Anne. As someone who is fascinated by the saints, I found this little book to be a wonderful collection of information about a saint who is prominent in our Church but about whom so little is known historically. The stories of the cures are inspirational. The library markings are the usual aong with a blacked out previous owner's name on the front free end paper. Sticker ghost and a white accession number on the lower spine. Very mild wear to the externals, in fact the book appears as though it has been used very little if at all.

Slight browning of the spine, otherwise clean and tight. The third book "Saint Anne's Pilgrim People" (1975), 132 pages is bound with full coliuyr paper over boards and is very well ilustrated. The first and third books are ex-library with the usual markings though all neatly done. All three books are included. .
