Jesu Christi Heilsame Versohnung Fur Die Sundigen Menschen
Berlegis Johann Heinrich Russworm, Stockholm Und Leipzig 1727 - Jesus Christ's Wholesome Reconciliation for Sinful Mankind. Sermons by a popular preacher at the time, though I have found out very little about him. This is a remarkable and very rare book, consisting of 3 large parts, paginated separately; 660 + 535 + 416 pp. + an index for all 3 parts which is 50 or more pp. long. All are bound together in a massive tome of unadorned vellum, in good-only condition; the front board is warping, beginning to split at the bottom near the spine; vellum soiled, and the page edges have turned very dark. May have been rebound some time long ago; the endpapers are thicker than the text pages, though they are laid paper; and the headbands are remarkably whole and unworn. The binding is quite tight. Front pastedown is marred with a few odd, probably recent stains. Text pages are darkened to a deep cream but are free of foxing and quite legible if you can read the German Fraktur typeface. Has a frontispiece portrait, probably of the author, with a caption in Latin. Title page in red and black, and has a complex woodcut vignette which I think is a publisher's device. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
