Author: BINDING. KEN (BISHOP):
Title: Approach to the Holy Altar; By Bishop Ken. From his "Manual of Prayer," and "Practice of Divine Love."
Description: London: William Pickering, 1852. 12mo, 168 x 106 mms., pp. viii, 148 [149 advert, 150 - 152 blank], bound by Barritt in black goatskin over bevelled boards, the covers with raised compartments, tooled in blind with gilt roundels, spine in seven compartments, tooled in blind crosses with a central gilt roundel, gilt dentelles, all edges gauffered in gilt, with a brass clasp. Some very slight wear to binding, but a very good to fine copy. A Manual of Prayers for the Use of the Scholars of Winchester Colledge, published in 1674 was attributed to Thomas Ken (1637 - 1711), Bishop of Bath and Wells and nonjuror. ODNB doesn't give a date for Practice of Divine Love, but his Exposition on the Church-Catechism, or the Practice of Divine Love was published in 1685. The six-page "Address to Young Communicants" is dated 1852 and signed with the initials I. L. A. A similar example of a binding by John Little Barritt (1801 - 1863) can be found in the British Library's Database of Bookbindings (search for Barritt).
