Photo Day 23 - Something Old
One of my oldest books is this lovely Latin/French prayer book, bound in leather and tooled with gold.
When it arrived, I was thrilled to find that the seller had kindly left in these beautiful lacy paper holy cards; it is nice to think of a previous owner using these as bookmarks for favourite parts
of the prayer book.
The earliest date on the table of moveable Feasts is 1822 but the inscription on the flyleaf is dated 1851. Either way, it is the oldest book in my possession.
