16mo 6" - 7" tall; Johann Albrecht, Lancaster; 1804. 1st edition of this important and enduring Lancaster Mennonite songbook. Bound in full period calf; both clasps and straps are lacking, but brass bosses and closures are intact. Light shelf rubbing to leather at spine ends and over the raised bands. Text block is intact and the paper is supple, though with expected light uniform toning. Prior owner inscription to 2nd blank endpage appears to be dated 1804 and 1807. Prior owner names appear to be Schenck and Denlingen, but the page is crazed with apparent insect predation or deterioration from the inks used in the inscription. Light general toning throughout to page stock. Paged [6], 79, [1], 415, [1], 17, [1]pp ; 18 cm. Some pages with bars of music. Printed in two columns. Bound, as always, with Ein Neues Unpartheyisches Gesangbuch, with separate title page and pagination. Also imprinted Johann Albrecht, 1804 (Shaw and Shoemaker 6863). This was the first of many editions of this popular Mennonite hymnal printed for the Lancaster Mennonite Church in the 1800's. A generally well preserved copy. VG- thus
