Volume I only. Full title: THE FORM OF MORNING PRAYER, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND IRELAND: TOGETHER WITH THE PSALMS OF DAVID. TO WHICH ARE ADDED THE FIRST LESSONS TO BE READ ON SUNDAYS, AND THE SECOND LESSONS AS THEY ARE APPOINTED TO BE SAID EVERY MORNING IN THE YEAR. ARRANGED BY THE LATE HONORABLE CHARLOTTE GRIMSTON. EIGHTH EDITION. VOL. I. Unpaged - approximately 600+ pages of double column text (save for title and a few other leaves). Hardcover: H 18.75cm x L 11.75cm. Full black morocco leather binding with bookseller/binder mark "Hatchard & Son" discreetly embossed at front pastedown's top left corner. Rubbing to boards with some wear and bumping to corners; gilt dentelle decoration at board edges but with scuffing and loss to bottom edge dentelles from shelfwear; spine has scuffing to five slightly raised bands which delineate six compartments; gilt title lettering "Church | Services" and "Morning" in second and third compartments respectively from top with smaller discreet gilt lettering "Oxford" immediately above heel; first, fourth, fifth, and sixth compartments have gilt stamped quatrefoil centerpieces and small gilt stamped ovals unevenly placed at each compartment's four corners; light scuffing at spine ends. All edges gilt. Some toning and foxing as well as light soiling to endpapers; past owner's inelegant modern ballpoint ink two-line inscription dated May 1977 at top of front free endpaper with top right corner having faded ink price notation and light impression from removed sticker. Interior pages are otherwise clean. Separate title leaf for concluding 70+ page section "A New Version of the Psalms of David, Fitted to The Tunes used in Churches. By N. Brady D.D. and N. Tate, Esq." [Nicholas Brady; Nahum Tate] with imprint "Oxford: printed at the University Press, by Samuel Collingwood and Co. . . . 1850" which, of course, means the binding must post-date 1850 but its style is certainly representative of British bindings circa 1850-1870. Founded in 1797 Hatchard's is the oldest operating bookstore in London and apparently did operate an in-house bindery at several points during its long history so the aforementioned front pastedown mark could be a dual bookseller and bindery mark. Binding is firm. Still a handsome very good copy. Please note that this book will require additional postage/insurance for any postal class other than domestic Media Mail. Issued in conjunction with Volume II "The Form of Evening Prayer . . ." which, as previously specified, is not present. 's. Bookseller Inventory #
