About this Item

Condition: Lacks the top one inch of the original, plywood, front cover, and the lower 1/2 inch of the back cover. The covers were originally paper covered, but most of the paper has now worn away. There is no title page, so I don't know the book's title, date, or place of publication. I would estimate the printing date as around 1810 to 1830, and this is an American printing. The first page is "The Order For Daily Morning Prayer", followed by pages of "Evening Prayer", "The Litany", "Prayers and Thanksgivings", "The Communion", "A Catechism", and 'The Psalter or Psalms of David", followed by 6 pages of "Hymns". The pages are slightly stained, and are heavily foxed. The inner front cover has the inscription: "Miss Margaret Farnsworth / Book Waldoborough Maine / Susan Samuel Farnsworth ag 13 (15?) yr / Susan Farnsworth age 12 yr / Bridget Farnsworth age 9 (7?) yr" .
