London: Frederick Warne & Co., (1875). fourth edition. A tiny compendium --only 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" (107mm x 71mm), 108pp -- of great charm, with a colored frontispiece, followed by 365 minuscule color illustrations of brief biblical texts, four to a page, with blank boxes on opposite pages to note birthdays or engagements. This is the fourth edition, with a brief preface. There is an owner's inscription dated 1881, and notations regarding people and dates on some entries. The book is bound in somewhat edge-rubbed full blue-black calf stamped blind and gilt, all edges gilt, and laid into a custom fold-over chemise and slipcase covered in hand-marbled paper with a leather title patch.
