These two small (6.5 by 5.5, 18 pp.) books illustrated by Ida Bohatta Morpurgo are just lovely. Each features 8 or 9 full-page lithographed illustrations depicting, respectively, part of the Lord's Prayer or the Hail Mary.

The books themselves are in fair condition, with significant sunfading and some damage to the spines and covers (the books have paper-covered boards) as seen in the last photograph. The pages of Hail Mary are loose in their cover while Our Father is intact. There is some foxing to the pages, a few slight dog-ears, and some gently erased pencil lines on the inside back covers and one or two text pages (no illustrations are affected.)

These are early 1930's editions, published and printed in Germany by the Art Institutes -- Ars Sacra -- Josef Mueller, Munich. The books, and especially these editions, are somewhat scarce. They will be carefully wrapped and sent to you via USPS. Please contact me with any questions you may have about these very special books. Thanks.
