Prague 1928 Oblong octavo. (13)ff. One of fifty copies. A guide for children explaining each of the twelve feasts of the Russian Orthodox church, as well as the Resurrection, with bright, hand-colored illustrations based on the church's traditional icons. The book begins with the Resurrection, the greatest feast of the Orthodox Church, and describes the others in chronological order, beginning with Mary's birth and ending with the Exaltation of the Life-Creating Cross. The fourth feast, the Nativity of Christ, depicts the Virgin Mary at the center of the image holding the Christ Child, surrounded by angels, animals, and the magi bearing gifts. The text is in Church Slavonic, the liturgical language of the Orthodox church, and is dedicated to Bishop Sergei, who became Bishop of Prague in the 1920s. This book is similar to hand-made texts that parents created during World War I to teach their children about the holidays. Some slight fraying to corners of covers, else fine in stab-bound iridescent pink and green brocade cloth.
