The former contained prayers and biblical readings, while the latter had the Psalms, often with a calendar. This volume was previously owned by John Jacob Astor III and William Waldorf Astor, who loaned the item to the 1883 exhibition in New York that raised funds for the base of the Statue of Liberty.
