This prayer book/bible was given to my husband's great grandmother in 1923. It is a great vintage children's prayer book and collectible. Front page says "The Little Catholic Child's Prayerbook Illustrated. Catholic Publications Press New York." The copyright date is 1923. It has 320 pages and measures approx. 4 1/8"x2 13/16". It uses celluloid covers with the front picture being an angel overlooking a child kneeling, praying. Looking at the pages from above, they are tinted gold. Many of these early celluloid prayer books were given as gifts to children on the occasion of their first communion. The illustrations in this book are beautiful. First page's illustrations are copyrighted by H. Hanfstaengl's Nachf. Brin.There is one torn page and a chip on the spine of the book but besides that, it is in excellent vintage condition. Especially considering the age of it. Starting page 311, it is written in Latin and it tells the manner of serving a priest at Mass. This is a great collector's piece!
