The Acquisitions Table: Day-Dawn

Day-Dawn. New York: American Tract Society, [ca. 1860]

Devotional books containing brief Bible passages for daily reading were frequently printed in two-inch miniature format so as to easily fit in a pocket. The American Tract Society was a major 19th-century publisher of these pocket devotionals. This title is new to AAS, and features a splendid gilt cover design of the rising sun. Purchased on eBay from Tracy Bradbury. Emma Forbes Waite Fund.

    I have the same book Day to Dawn with a red cover with gold writing on cover and spine and gold on edges of paper in nice condition. I was doing some research on this item and came across this page thank you.
