Two volumes, uniformly bound in contemporary calf, gilt borders on covers, spines ornately gilt, red morocco labels; very slight wear to spines, but generally an attractive set, with the contemporary armorial bookplate of William Thomas Parr Brymer (d. 1852) on the front paste-down end-paper in each volume. Charles Daubeny (bap. 1745 - d. 1827) made little secret of his high church principles, which were steadfastly affirmed in these two books. They were much admired by Anglicans in Britain and by Episcopal churchmen in America and Scotland. Copies of both books are numerous in UK libraries, but rather less common in north America. For the Guide, ESTC T85232 locates copies in the College of William and Mary, General Theological Seminary, Saint Mark's Library, Iowa, Virginia, and Washington and Lee. For the Appendix, T85305, copies in General Theological Seminary, Saint Mark's Library, Harvard, Iowa, and Washington and Lee.
