this book is really wonderful. its not in the best condition, so i really think artists can appreciate it and do something new with it. there are so many illustrations or printed engravings in the book, and they are just so beautiful, really detailed.

the book is a religious text, but i am not sure what it is excatly, it isn't a bible. matko bolesna, which is the books main title, means "mother, painful" literally, in the polish language. the text inside is really beautiful (font) and is in large print.

some condition issues-- there is hand writing in the book, se epic 5. the written words seem to be older than the childs illustrations. there is a sheet of vellum that has been ripped (pic 3). the spine is also ripped and not in the best condition, but the book as a whole is mostly together and in tact.

measures 4.5 x 3 x 1.25 inches.
