Publisher: Gedruckt durch C. Raben: Herborn
Condition: Very Good
An extremely scarce late 16th century edition of The Psalms of David, based after French Melodies and Reymenart in German rhymes understandably and clearly brought about by Ambrosium Lobwasser. There are several other psalms and spiritual hymns as well, commonly used in churches and congregations.
Starting from page 130 onwards, there are some annotations in the margins and around the text, with seme pages completely covered in notes for sermons and homilies. It is possible this copy was owned by a minister or priest at one point.

One volume in octavo, 196 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with very light rubbing to the boards. Pages 39-40 and 127-132 bear signs of repair to the corners, with some text loss. Three is a small wormhole present from page 131-154, obscuring several letters. There is some toning and foxing throughout.
