First edition, octavo format, of this Book of Prayer edited by Seddon, in collaboration with Philip Holland and Richard Godwin, for use by the congregation of dissenters assembled at the Octagon Chapel, in Liverpool. The selection of Psalms has a separate title-leaf, register and index. ESTC locates ten copies in North America, and notes that the same setting of type was utilized for copies in quarto format. The original owner, Robert Nicholson (1727-1779), was a principal of one of the most prominent merchant families in Liverpool of the 18th and 19th centuries; coincidentally, Dorothy Nicholson (1741-1785) became the wife of the Rev. Nicholas Clayton, D.D. (1730-1797), minister of the Octagon Chapel. The later gift inscription is from Robert Nicholson's namesake and grandson, to Albert Nicholson. ESTC T148092.
