STCN (1 copy); VD17 23:242578S (2 copies); WorldCat (5 copies, incl. 2 the same); for the bindery: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding I, pp. 228-284, 332-347 and 360-363. Very rare edition of the well-known German "Lobwasser Psalter", here published in the Netherlands (in the original German) and first published at Leipzig in 1573, including, with its own title-page but clearly published together, a hymnbook and catechism with translations, adaptations and texts by Martin Luther and Johannes Habermann (1516-1590).It is splendidly bound in contemporary Dutch richly gold-tooled red morocco. The binding uses 4 stamps (86/87, 106, 121 and 128) and 1 roll (XXXII) found in the stock of the so-called "Double Drawer Handle Bindery", active 1697-1742. The roll was later used by the so-called "Art Book Bindery" (III), active 1705-1741 and the "Houbraken Group" (III), active 1708-1721. This last used two more stamps that appear on the present binding (9 and 29), so the attribution remains uncertain, but since the two later binderies were not active until seven years after publication and the Drawer Handle Bindery is known for its bindings for the Wetstein firm, that association seems the most likely. This bindery is considered "the most important Amsterdam workshop of the eighteenth century" (Storm van Leeuwen).In very good condition, with only a few small spots or stains. Binding chipped along the extremities, most heavily at the head and foot of the spine, but otherwise good.
