A Little Sliver of Silver

If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures
Proverbs 2:4

A recent addition to the Kinder Library is a curious copy of ‘The Book of Common Prayer’ which was found online by one of our eagle eyed librarians.

While the book’s subject maybe of no surprise at a Theological library, its tiny size (measuring just six centimeters length ways) makes it unique. The most notable feature however, is the gleaming front cover made of sterling silver.

The cover is hallmarked by Levi & Salaman, Birmingham , 1905.
