12mo - 18.5 x 12 cm.; xi - 144 pp. Red cloth over boards with gilt lettering on the spine. From the foreword by the author: "This book was originally written for the use of the Dominican nuns of St. Dominic's Priory, Carisbrooke, with no thought of future publication, and it seemed best to retain the family atmosphere even when it is now offered to a wider circle of readers . . . In revising it for publication . . .". It did exist in a different form prior to this edition. This particular edition in hand states on the copyright page, "First Impression 1948", the approbations are dated December, 1947 and the preface by Conrad Pepler OP is dated November 15, 1947. This appears to be the first edition of the revised edition. Black and white frontis piece of Giovanni Santi's St. Albert the Great and 1 black and white plate facing page 16 of the "School of Albert" after Fra Angelico. The library markings are a number in white on the spine, a stamp on the title page and attachment remains on the back free end paper. Otherwise clean with a sound binding and having minor wear to the spine tips. The dust jacket has a faint inked number on the spine and the head edge has minor wear.
