157pp. Sextodecimo [18 cm] Original blue cloth binding with blind and gilt stamping on the front cover. Good only. The extremities are mildly rubbed and stained, and there is a 6" vertical split in the cloth of the spine. The underlying boards are exposed occasionally along the edges of the covers. There is a previous owner's inscription in pen and pencil on the front pastedown, and there are very sporadic markings on the pages. The front hinge is going, and the text block is cracked a number of times at the beginning.
Though not officially part of the 'Faith Promoting Series' this volume looks very similar to the series, and is designed for the same purpose, the instruction of the youth.
