The Little Catholic Child’s Prayerbook
Catholic Publications Press
This is a fine example of celluloid binding that was popular between the 1890s and the 1950s. Made from the combination of nitrocellulose and camphor, celluloid was an affordable alternative to ivory. The cover image of Jesus giving communion wafers to child angels identifies it as a Catholic children’s book. The text includes a pictorial explanation of the mass.
