Richard Grafton, 1545
First Edition of Henry VIII's third Primer; so rare that
Mr. Maskell only knew of the existence of one perfect copy.
It contains the Litany of 1544, afterwards with slight altera-

copy cited by Lowndes is that wanting title, calendar, and

portion of five leaves, which belonged to Mr. Maskell.

old russia, £10. 10s

There are thirty lines in a full page : the signatures are A to X in fours,
except X, in which there were probably only two leaves, or perhaps three.
The present copy ends with leaf X 1, on the bottom of the reverse of which
are the words 56 here after foloweth the | Table of this present booke.”
Leaf X 1 is marked lxxxii in the pagination, instead of lxxxi, by a mistake
which begins on leaf T 1, which bears lxxiiii instead of lxxiii. (It may
have begun on the missing leaf S 4, which ought to have borne the numeral

Edward the Fifth's first Common Prayer. In any shape or sort the book is a very uncommon one ; but when the copy is perfect, large, and healthy, like this one, it is indeed a rarity which many of the richest booklovers might covet in vain. The royal order printed on the last page regarding the price of the book was an expedient which some of the new-booksellers of the present day would like to see repeated, with the substitution of under for above. “No maner of persone shall sell the present Booke vnbounde aboue the price of two shillynges and two pence. And bounde in Forell for iis. xd. and not aboue. And the same bounde in Shepes Lether for iiis iiid and not aboue. And the same bounde in paste or in boordes, in Calues Lether, not
