BARBER PRAYER BOOK

This Prayer Book is in the Perth Museum archives.

This is a small Book of Common Prayer, with a worn, red velvet cover and a brass clasp. A small (silver?) crest is attached to the front cover, on which is engraved: "Church / Service" in Gothic letters.

It is not known how long the book has been in the Perth Museum, or who was the donor.

The short inscription is written in ink on the second blank right-hand page (the page after the fly-leaf).

A partial transcript of the title page:
