[Book of Common Prayer]

London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1910. Two volumes. 356;357-587,[3]pp. Large, thick octavo. 260 x 195 mm. Publisher's half pigskin, raised bands, and wooden boards, t.e.g, others untrimmed. Private bookplate on each pastedown. 1959 presentation t.l.s. affixed to first free endsheet, joints rubbed, with some narrow cracks (but quite sound), textblock quite fine. A deluxe issue of the Book of Common Prayer marking the accession of King George V, printed on real vellum. The colophon on the verso of the title denotes this as copy #5 of six copies thus. However, Griffiths reports that there were two issues of six copies each, and notes the title-page is printed in red & black -- it is here printed in black only. Whether actually one of six, or one of a total of twelve copies on vellum, a very scarce format for this edition. GRIFFITHS 1910.1.

THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS, AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND: TOGETHER WITH THE PSALTER OR PSALMS OF DAVID ...

[Book of Common Prayer]

Cambridge: Printed by Joseph Bentham Printer to the University .., 1762. Not paginated. [¶2],A-2Z4,*A-*C4. Folio (signed in 4s). 40 x 25cm. Contemporary mottled calf, six raised bands, gilt monogram device of King George III in each spine compartment and in the extreme corners of the boards within a triple-ruled border, four ribbon ties at fore-edge (one nearly detached, but otherwise intact), a.e.g. Joints cracking, but cords sound, early amateurish repairs to spine ends and fore- corners, edgeworn, faint tidemark at extreme lower fore-corners of 3Z4 to end, occasional marginal smudges, but otherwise very good. An uncommon variant of Bentham's folio printing of 1762, with the separately signed Articles at the end concluding with *C4. ESTC locates but one copy of this variant (Queen's College, Oxford), as opposed to a dozen with the final leaf being 3A2. This copy has an interesting provenance: it is inscribed in the upper margin of the title: "GH Governor of Minorca 1766." After an active and successful military career George Howard (1718-1796), sat in the House of Commons for Lostwithiel from 1761 until 1766, when he was appointed Governor of Minorca -- the British had reclaimed the island in 1763 as a consequence of the Treaty of Paris. After holding the post for two years, he returned to political and military pursuits and continued to flourish. His second marriage, in May 1776, was to Elizabeth of the Beckford family. Given the Royal ornamentation of the binding, and the nature of the inscription, it seems probable that this represents a Royal gift to Howard, if not on the occasion, certainly in the year of Howard's appointment to the Governorship. On the front pastedown appears the bookplate (two lions and "Virtus Mille Scuta") associated with the Howards of Effingham. In 1762, Bentham published editions of the Prayer Book in quarto, octavo, 12mo and folio, the latter evidently in two issues -- the form recorded by Griffiths as 1762:2, and this form, which is unrecorded by Griffiths.

[Book of Common Prayer]

London: Printed by John Baskett ...and by the Assigns of Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills ..., 1715. [20,380],23,[3]pp. terminating at 3A4. Folio (465 x 285 mm). Contemporary black gilt paneled armorial goatskin, heavily gilt extra, a.e.g., marbled endsheets. Engraved frontispiece. Text in double columns, printed in black and red, the whole ruled in red. Spine and upper spine quadrant of upper board restored with black calf, edges of text block smoke-darkened, with occasional shallow isolated penetration into margins, early repair on verso of frontispiece, tidemark in upper forecorner/quadrant of last three text leaves and endleaves, small mend on verso of title at top margin, occasional handsoiling and smudging, a few minor marginal nicks or short tears; in spite of these detractions, in the main a bright, crisp copy. One of two large folio printings of The Book of Common Prayer published by Baskett in 1715, this being the form that terminates at 3A4. This copy was associated with the family and descendants of Henry Clinton, seventh earl of Lincoln (1684 - 1728) and his wife Lucy, daughter of the first Baron Pelham. Inserted in the front are two conjugate sheets of paper (one blank), and laid in are two folio sheets of vellum (a bit stained along the top edges). The latter are occupied on three sides with a manuscript family record, written at various times and in various hands (including births, deaths, marriages, etc) from 1744 through the death in 1794 of Henry Fienes Pelham Clinton, Duke of Newcastle. The first of the inserted paper leaves is of perhaps greater interest, as it bears a fifteen line manuscript account by White Kennett, Bishop of Peterborough, signed and with his seal, of his baptism at the Parish of St. James, in Westminster, on 12 February 1718/19, of the Clinton's first son, George, for whom "His Excellent Majestie King George was Graciously Pleased to do this Honour ... to stand Godfather in his own Royal Person and to give him His own Royal Name of George...." Apart from his clerical responsibilities, Kennett (1660 - 1728) was an active antiquary, with particular interest in events in North America. He assembled a large and important library, and based on that collection, compiled the first attempt at a catalogue of books on North America: BIBLIOTHECAE AMERICANAE PRIMORDIA. AN ATTEMPT TOWARDS LAYING THE FOUNDATION OF AN AMERICAN LIBRARY.... London, 1713. His close friendship with Charles Trimnell, bishop of Norwich and one of George I's favorites, secured him the bishopric of Peterborough in 1718. GRIFFITHS 1715.1. ESTC T81463.

(Book of Common Prayer)

Cambridge: Printed by J. Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1762. 8vo, ff. [344]. Contemporary red morocco in a simpler version of the 'Harleian' style, by the 'Baskerville' workshop with Baskerville's distinctive marbled endpapers, boards bordered with a gilt roll and with a central gilt lozenge area made up of various tools, spine divided by raised bands, compartments bordered and crossed with a triple gilt rule, with additional acorn and other tools, edges gilt. A little light spotting. Binding a little marked and darkened in places (the colour touched up in several small areas), slight rubbing to extremities, a few scratches and scrapes to extremities. Booklabel of Colin Fenton to initial blank, ownership inscriptions of Charles Wright of Bromsgrove to title-page and elsewhere, and of Charles Arthur Latcham of Clifton to initial blank. As a sideline to his printing business, Baskerville produced marbled paper with a distinctive pattern, said to 'represent blended washes of water colour' (Gaskell). This paper was used in bindings by a workshop which was closely associated with Baskerville - he is not known to have directly owned a bindery - and such bindings are often, for ease, known as 'Baskerville bindings'. Surviving examples are scarce, especially in more elaborately decorated bindings such as this one. Gaskell 19; ESTC T87227.

Half gilt pigskin and wooden boards, with metal clasps and thong ties (most of the latter absent), untrimmed. Printed in red and black, with decorations and initials.

One of 400 copies on paper and ten on vellum, printed in the Endeavour and Prayer Book types designed by Ashbee. Tomkinson asserts that only fifty copies of the insert were printed, specifically to accompany those copies sent to America. The selection of the pigskin for binding was not necessarily wise, as without careful attention, the joints dry and crack (as here). A special adapted reprint was eventually prepared for American distribution by M. Walter Dunne. GRIFFITH 1904.1. RANSOM (ESSEX) 37. TOMKINSON (ESSEX) 37 & 39.

Birmingham: Printed by John Baskerville. 1762. [52] leaves. First (and only) Baskerville edition. ESTCT107540. Marbled endpapers. Ffep with calligraphic inscription of Elizabeth Holcombe Wellington dated 1813 (two years prior to the Battle of Waterloo), a possible but unconfirmed relation of the Duke of Wellington. All page edges gilt. Bound in contemporary full maroon morocco with black central black onlay with divine monogram ("IHS"), winged angels and flames, and elaborately gilt-tooled borders and spine. Corners rounded. Three first edition Baskerville printings bound together in a spectacular contemporary English binding. Particularly unusual for containing both the "old" (Sternhold & Hopkins) Psalter and the "new" (Brady & Tate) Psalter. A unique book. Baskerville was an innovative printer and typographer whose works are considered to be some of the most beautiful printed in the English language. Tributes to his genius as a printer include the font that bears his name, as well as nods by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (The Hound of the Baskervilles) and Umberto Eco (who named the protagonist in The Name of the Rose William of Baskerville).
