Binding
Gesangbuch zum gottesdienstlichen Gebrauch in den Königlich Preussischen Landen
In der Mylissischen Buchhandling, 1823. Small 8vo, contemporary black velveteen stamped in gilt, tooled red leather onlay to each board with a green heart device applied to each, [vi], 378 pages, decorated paste-downs, a.e.g., gauffered edges. Contemporary decorated paste-paper decorated two-piece slipcase. Final gathering trimmed a little close, with some loss to the signature and catchword. Fragile velvet binding rubbed at the cords and corners; slipcase rubbed; lower panel renewed. Text a little foxed throughout. A pretty copy of the Mylius Hymnal (first published in 1781 as a reformed work to reflect the drift of Enlightenment thought), this in an especially pleasing decorated German (provincial?) binding with a contemporary slipcase that has preserved the velvet covers and onlays well. With contemporary family notes in MS (1838 et seq.) on the first and final blank leaves.
Bookseller: Michael Laird Rare Books (nec-plus-ultra) [Lockhart, Texas, US]
