DER VERSCHMACHTENDEN SEELEN, HERTZENS TROST und THEIL: Aus den Sonn-und Fest-Tags-Evangelien, Durchs gantze Jahr [etc.]
Frankfurt, Germany: Friedrich Eichorns.. Bound in period full leather over wooden boards. ND [1692]. hb. Thick 4to, pp. 1072, [16] . A German book of days, and prayers. The title translates as: "To the Sweltering Souls / Hearts Consolation and part/ out of the [?] and / festive days gospels / Through the entire year / and several sayings (or proverbs) for/ the High Festive Days and Afternoons / Next to two preachings at the End / for Preparation [?] Holy Communion and blissful death / introduced / In which everything is briefly explained / and directly to be used for edification". Title page in red and black letters. The text is in the Suelterlin form of German, and the pagination is continuous to page 1,072, when follows sixteen pages of unnumbered text, ending abruptly, thus lacking following pages, the quantity unknown. The only copy of this title, shown on WorldCat, is being held by the university library in Halle / Saale, Germany, and indicates a pagination of [4], [588]. Our copy is bound in full brown leather, with evidence of some very early repairs. Both the binding, and the edges of the pages, show considerable wear. Preliminary and end pages, in particular, are chipped at edges, and somewhat darkened. Front blanks, and inside rear board contain hand-written notes, in various early hands, describing what appears to be a family genealogy. The binding is weak but intact, and the text may be read without undue trepidation. A very scarce work. .
