JONES, Owen, 1809-1874 – illustrator : THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS, AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES ...

London : John Murray, 1845. First Owen Jones edition. One of the highlights of early Victorian book production and early colour printing – the text with decorative borders and initials throughout, many in colour, interspersed with divisional titles chromolithographed in gold and glowing colours, and illustrations drawn from the great masters.
Royal 8vo (239 x 153mm). xl,484pp. Eight illuminated titles by Jones, with four less elaborate by Henry Warren and John C. Horsley; vignettes, initials, borders and ornaments by Jones; illustrations by George Scharf after Raphael, etc.; original publisher’s roan over bevelled boards, richly gilt; expertly rebacked and refurbished, retaining the original spine; all edges gilt; some light rubbing, sunning and wear; inner hinges reinforced; some occasional spotting, but still an attractive copy of a handsome book. Small ownership stamp of the old Williams’s Library of Cheltenham.
