Title: Gott ist die Reinste Liebe: Mein Gebeth und meine Betrachtung, 1799. Embroidered Binding, and Two Embroidered Manuscript Saint Cards
Author: Carl von Eckartshausen
Publisher: Hildesheim, dey Jacob Gieger
Condition: Good

A late 18th century edition of von Eckartshausen’s God is the Purest Love: my prayer and my meditation, a devotional text which saw numerous printings from the 18th to 19th century.

This volume is in a hand-embroidered binding, with silk threads of green and yellow threads, and shining, metal sequins in between it all. To the spine are raised bands. To the covers are borders of trawling vines, with the owner’s monogram and the date that the embroidery was executed, being 1827.

The volume is also accompanied with a contemporary slipcase, with marbled papers decorating the inside. Inside the volume are also two hand painted and embroidered saint cards.

One embroidered volume in 12mo, (8)+216 pages

This volume is in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the binding, heaviest to the spine. Some of the embroidery has come apart, along with some of the metal beadwork. There is some foxing throughout. As the slipcase is extremely tight, care should be taken when encasing the volume back inside, to avoid risk of damage to the embroidery.
