Book Description Charles Eason, 1915. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. B00LX7NIMG 1915 Charles Eason, Middle Abbey Street (Dublin, Ireland), 2 3/8 x 3 3/4 inches tall black hardbound, gilt title and date to spine, all page edges red, black endpapers, 240, 160 pp. Mild rubbing to covers. Sun fading to spine. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce early 20th century Irish Catholic prayer book. No copies of this particular edition are listed by OCLC, though Copac shows a 1927 issue by Eason, with one copy at the British Library. The date is given only on the spine; inside, the Table of Movable Feasts extends from 1912-1927. The author, given on the title page as 'the Right Rev. J.M., Catholic Bishop,' may refer to John Milner (1752-1826), who was an English Roman Catholic bishop and controversialist who is credited with some 37 published works, some addressed to the Catholics of Ireland. Milner is credited by OCLC with authorship of late 19th century editions of this collection of devotions. Includes prayers for confession, before and after Mass, litanies, indulgenced prayers, holy offices, the rosary, the ordinary of the Mass (in Latin and English in parallel columns) and a variety of hymns, in addition to the collection of epistles and gospels read at Mass. ~Z~.
