"ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL"

Petite edition of the Book of Common Prayer—together with the English Hymnal—lovingly illustrated for young children by Margaret Tarrant, complete with the original illustrated dust jacket. Perhaps best known for her illustrated fairy books, Margaret Tarrant began a long association with the fine-arts publisher, the Medici Society in the 1920s. This "Mowbray's Edition" combines the Prayer Book together with the English Hymnal. Both are printed on India paper, with separate title pages, tables of contents, and pagination. Tarrant's 12 color-printed plates—including frontispiece illustrations for the Book of Common Prayer ("All Things Bright and Beautiful") and the English Hymnal ("Little Hands Outstretched to Bless") are reproduced here courtesy of the Medici Society. Set in Great Britain at the University Press Oxford. Reprinted by Richard Clay and Company, Ltd.
