Description

Vintage hardback: The Faith of Our Fathers: A Plain Exposition and Vindication of the Church Founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ by James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore. [Please click '+More' to read all the details!]
I think this is an 1889 edition, but I may be wrong on that (correct me if you know better, please!) :)
Title page refers to it as the 'Thirty-fourth carefully revised and enlarged edition'. It is in FAIR condition for its age and does show some signs of wear. The outer edges of the pages show a pattern of wear, cover shows wear and one tiny tear in the lower spine. The title page is TORN OUT but is still included with the book (see third photo). The interior pages seem poorly bound, so although they're all intact within the binding, there's a feeling of fragility as you turn the pages. Has a name penciled onto one interior flyleaf.
This is a SMALLER THAN AVERAGE hardback. If you'd like to know the dimensions/size of this book, let me know and I'll get those measurements for you asap!

This book "Explains the basic tenets of the Catholic Faith and why we hold them. Delves into the historical background of virtually everything people find hard to understand about our Religion, such as priestly celibacy, sacred images, the Church and the Bible, the primacy of Peter, Communion under one kind, invocation of the Saints, etc. First published in 1876, when there was much anti-Catholic sentiment in the U.S., it sold 1.4 million copies in 40 years and has been reprinted many times since."

*I live and work in a pet-friendly environment; my items may not be suitable for those with severe allergies.*
Occasionally, poor rural internet service prevents me from immediately shipping items or answering inquiries. Thank you for your patience if this occurs.

This item ships via INSURED Priority Mail (cost determined by package weight & the buyer's location).

Shipping policies

SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping charges for most items are based on the weight & size of the item and packaging, plus the buyer's location. You may choose from different shipping options in most of my listings. I recommend Priority Mail, as it is faster and comes with shipping insurance.
A small handling fee is included in the shipping cost. This varies from item to item, depending on the type of packaging required.

PACKAGE TRACKING: All items are shipped with package tracking -- even small 'paper' items like cards & bookmarks -- every item comes with proof of shipment and delivery.

MEDIA MAIL: Books and magazines are shipped via Media Mail, which is typically a bit slower than First Class or Priority. These items are eligible for shipping upgrades at check-out.

TIMING: If you need an item by a certain date, please contact me before making your purchase to discuss shipping options. My rural location can sometimes make rush orders difficult.

PACKAGING: I recycle and re-use packing materials whenever possible. This sometimes includes the use of food boxes as packaging -- if you have any serious allergies please let me know so I don't inadvertently use an inappropriate box to package your item. I also work in a 'pet-friendly' space, which may be an issue for customers who are allergic.

Additional policies

OUT IN THE BOONIES: I live in a rural area. There is no cell phone service here (!) and the landline phone, internet, and even the mail may be interrupted a few times a year by adverse weather conditions -- potentially causing brief delays in shipment.
Whenever possible, I notify my current customers of these outages, and I always strive to send replies and ship items as speedily as possible. Thank you for your patience & understanding when I'm unable to do so immediately. :)

~FAQ~
Q: How big is it?
A: Sizes of items are included in item descriptions, titles, and photos whenever possible. I realize these details may be difficult to access on certain devices, so if you can't view the pertinent information, send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Q: Can you make me a personalized item?
A: I certainly can; I will happily take commissions for a variety of handmade, hand-painted, or handcrafted items. Just let me know what you want, and I'll give you details on pricing and how long it will take.

Q: Will you give this item to me for free / will you give me a discount?
A: My prices are firm. I do, however, have sales or offer coupon codes from time to time. The best place to learn about such sales is in my shop announcement or on my Facebook page: AtticStudioWV.

Q: You say you work in a 'pet-friendly' space, what does that mean?
A: I have 6 cats and 2 dogs who do sometimes 'invade' my studio (so my items may not be suitable for those with severe allergies). I also have a flock of chickens...but they don't have access to the interior of my house! ;)

Q: Why don't you ship to my country?
A: For a variety of reasons, I no longer ship internationally. Perhaps you could utilize a forwarding service to purchase from my shop.
