RegUp the Grand Antiques is located in Grand River Valley, Ontario

Fraktur inscription by Margaretha Klesattell (anglicized as Cleesattel) of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in her German-language Anglican Book of Common Prayer.  Margaretha was probably related to Christopher Klesattell, who built the historic Little Dutch Church in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1756. Her prayer book was printed in fraktur script in London, England, in 1771.  There is only one recorded copy of this edition worldwide, and none recorded in this hemisphere.  Please review photos for condition.
