Gesangbuch fur die Evangelische Kirche in Wurttemberg

Stuttgart: Verlags-Comptoir des Nueun Gesangbuchs, 1842. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. Leather ruled in giltand inset with a glass-bead decorated floral pattern on the front and rear boards. Later gift inscription in German, modest rubbing and wear at the corners, slight foxing, a very good plus copy. Apparently a songbook prepared for the 25th anniversary of the reign of the King of Wurttemberg, printing lyrics with a title index, an index of composers, and brief biographical information. Notable mostly for the very unusual binding of tiny glass beads worked into with floral patterns on a black background, with beads of blue, gold, and green, surrounded by a stylized leaf pattern in two shades of green. A few of the tiny beads are missing at the margins, but the decoration is sound and stable, and is otherwise unflawed. An unusual binding, and a lovely book.
