uno de los libros más efectivos en mi vida ... !!! Me encanta.
Sad, sad and sad! Three people trapped in a triangle of tradition and modern society- all are miserable and waiting.
I have much the same feelings for this book as for another, smaller, copy I own, published in 1815. This particular weighty tome may, from its size, have either been used as an Altar Book, or perhaps its owner simply had poor eyesight - one does rather take the excellent services of a modern optician, together with electric lighting, rather, and unthinkingly, for granted. It should very much like to take this particular Prayer Book into the parish church of Whitby, in Yorkshire, England. High up on the east cliff above this coastal (once fishing port) town, the parish church, warmed by a coal fire, still has a full complement of Georgian period box pews. To quietly sit there and contemplate the six engraved plates: The Sacrament, The Last Supper, Baptism, Marriage, the Visitation of the Sick, and Funeral Service, would be a remarkable experience; made more so by the fact that their Christian life and witness continues today through the use of the 1662 liturgy.
It's an interesting supplement to seeing the items in the book in person.
