Catechism of the Protestant Episcopal Church, together with the alphabet and a hymn "on the Nativity of our Saviour, and another for Easter-Day." This work is notable for listing bookbinder Caleb Buglass in its imprint. Buglass was an important binder in 18th-century Philadelphia who bound copies of the first American Episcopal Book of Common Prayer (an example is listed in the Papantonio American bookbinding exhibition catalogue). This is also the only American imprint noted in NAIP, ESTC, or OCLC which bears his name. Scarce, with only a handful of copies in ESTC. EVANS 21409. ESTC W10091.
