16mo - 14.5 x 10 cm.; vii - 160 pp. Tan calf leather over thin boards with gilt lettering on front and blind stamped rules with corner crosses as borders on front and back. The text block edges are stained red and polished as issued. For the sake of being precise, the full title is given as follows: "A Short and Plain Instruction for the Better Understanding of the Lord's Supper with the necessary preparation required for the benefit of young communicants and of such as have not well considered this holy ordinance to which is annexed The Office of Holy Communion with proper helps and directions for joining in every part thereof with understanding and benefit. New and Unabridged Edition". Printed two columns per page with red marginal borders. The leather is worn through on the board corners and the spine tips. The spine is scuffed as are the board edges and adjacent margins. Both end paper hinges are torn though this does not affect the binding as the backstrip is integral to the text block as when first produced. The head edge margins of the first ten leaves have a small tide mark that does not affect any text. Previous owner's name and date on the first blank page and the name alone on the front paste down end paper. A still quite handsome little volume and a clear archival cover has been fitted.
