About this Item

No date but appears to be 18th century. Book is 5-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches, 331p., rich black leather with floral and twisted bands of gilt on both front and rear boards. 4 raised spine bands and full gilt floral decoration on spine. Original delicate color floral end paper. All edges gilt. Text very neatly written in black ink with headings in red ink. Owner name (and likely writer of mss text in the book) is written on front blank but is a bit too decorative to read but something like Johannes Truntzel. His town is also given but also hard to decifer. Lovely item. Good plus, some light cover wear, end papers unevenly browned. Text largely clean and binding is very secure. Nice sample of bookbinder's art and of religious devotion as book feels to have been often used for praying. Bookseller Inventory # a87085
