ABOUT THIS ITEM

The two books in this collection are in exceptional condition, especially for both being well over 100 years old.

The first book is an undated "Little Folded Hands" book of children's prayers. It is undated and the author is not credited. The cover and binding are exceptional, with no blemishes or breaking. There is an inscription on the inside that reads, "Petria Hansen 'A merry christmas 1916' from Bethlehem Lutz (?) sunday school." The cover coloring and interior sketches add an antique charm and character to this book.

The second book is an 1897 edition of "Galme= Og Gangbog" (Baptist Hymnal). It was published by the American Baptist Association. We're actually not sure what language it was printed in, but it looks like an atypical form of german or dutch. We received some very helpful feedback from another etsy seller (a philologist) who said, "I am not 110% sure it's in Danish, as, in that time period, many Norwegian books were written using Danish orthography, but, judging from the photo posted, the vocabulary seems to be Danish as well." So Danish is our best guess!

The binding is in fair condition, but is starting to separate at the cover and first several pages. It is still intact, however, and the cover itself is in remarkably good shape. The print and hymns are absolutely stunning.
