The Companion of The Sanctuary. Undated, but circa 1890 or earlier.
Beautiful antique book in fine condition. Bound in full velvet cloth with gold metal protective borders, gold title plate on spine, silver bosses on the front cover, and a large white cross in the center. Quite a lovely book with the original working clasp and sewn in book mark.
Illustrated with many full page plates; nearly one per page throughout the last 1/4th of the book. There is also a tissue guarded engraved frontispiece facing the title page, and a very unique pressed flower from Bethlehem bound into the center.
