This appears to be a bound blank copy-book, with pages ruled in light pencil by the writer, or writers. Inscription on the front paste-down in ink (approximately): 1829 Pod vrelna dni, vkradowne knisska tato ges zepsana w pressowe od C: Srlop[-]. Name at top of first handwritten titlepage: Albert D. Dianiska. List of titlepages (approximately; given without diacritical marks or the special characters for Czech or Slovak; as best as the older, "gothic"/fraktur-style handwriting can be deciphered, several writers/copyist might have been involved): [1] Kriwdy Jizwy, Bitky, Synalosti, Rany, Wezenj, Wihanenj, Smrte: aneb Spolusebranj Smutnich prjpadnostj, vkazugjych, gak odzacatku Reformaczi posawad & Ewangeliky w Vhych nakladano, & hodnowernuch Spisu witazene y zskanssenosti wzate.

Ritmowne sepsanij Leta Pane 1828 od Carla Szlopovszlij zlozene. Titlepage and 66 handwritten pages. Ink color varies from faded brown, to black (possibly re-inked at a later date, on titlepages), on laid paper, some material is double columned, as if for comparision. Language appears to be Czech, but some early Slovak material may also be present. Pages shows some age-related stains, and signs of wear, as does the binding. Scarce, handwritten material (some, possibly, unpublished) used by Lutherans in Slovakia. Scan shows the title to the poem on the life of Martin Luther, with a facing page of text. This volume alone would make a wonderful basis for scholarly research in the field of Slavic languages, or religious history in Eastern Europe. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
