New York: Printed for the Committee, 1893. Folio, (28), 566, (2) pages. Original richly gold-stamped parchment over boards, brass clasps, gilt top, small nick at the foot of the upper cover, otherwise an excellent copy of a binding often found soiled. Bookplate of Syracuse Public Library at front. Limited to 500 copies (and one copy on vellum plus a few copies signed by Morgan and others). The first Updike prayer book, printed by De Vinne with the binding and border designs throughout the book by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. Printed in red and black with borders to every page, this stately folio in a striking binding is quite a contrast to Updike’s second prayer book of 1930. Page LVIII.

With a copy of the 1893 [4]pp. pamphlet: "On the Decorations of the Limited Edition of the Standard Prayer Book of 1892", by D. B. Updike, printed at the De Vinne Press, laid in as usual.
