The corners and spine ends have light wear, and a ghost of a sticker on the ffep. ; This well-illustrated volume brings to Christians prayers for Sundays and Holydays. The author's original intent was for all Christians to have this in their home, and especially those who lived in rural areas and were not able to get to church every week and holyday. Originally printed in German in 1690, this book includes information on the lives of many saints, explanations of Christian faith and duty and of church ceremonies, and much more. Very well illustrated, a list of movable feast days is included. Inside is a momento of the Silver Jubilee of Rev. Francis P. Faust from Alexandria, Indiana, and a card from John Cardinal Farley dated March 9, 1913, listing The Promises of Our Lord. Both have illustrations on the verso. The maroon binding is beautifully decorated with blackstamp on the entire front and spine, with lettering in gold on the spine. The spine is tight with no markings on the binding. ; B&W Illustrations; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 703 pages
