Charming Old German Religious Text: Hardbound With Cardboard Case, C1880's:
This is one of those books that feels like a small treasure.
It comes encased in a cardboard cover. The binding is made from plaid cloth. There is a bright spine with folkloric designs underneath the cloth.There is a die cut floral label pasted on the cover.
The book itself has a faux-tooled cover. With a linen tape binding on the spine.There is loose and pasted ephemeral stuck inside.A name. A handwritten inscription.Scribbles practicing handwriting: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9...
As far as I can make out the old German script, the text is of a religious nature.There is no pagination, and the pages are printed on an earthy pulp-y paper.You can "feel" the typeset on the pages.
Piece measures 3.5" x 5" x 1" (the book without the cover).
As you can see from the photographs, the piece is quite "aged."It is in fragile condition--though is not "frail." I hope that makes sense.
Like I mentioned, this is like a little piece of the past in your hands.It must have been a loved and cherished book in its day.
