Our copy is bound in full brown leather, with evidence of some very early repairs. Both the binding, and the edges of the pages, show considerable wear. Preliminary and end pages, in particular, are chipped at edges, and darkened.

The binding is weak but intact, with the rear board only attached at top corner, but the text may be read without undue trepidation. A very scarce work. A German book of days, and prayers. The title translates as: 'To the Sweltering Souls / Hearts Consolation and part/ out of the [?] and / festive days gospels / Through the entire year / and several sayings (or proverbs) for/ the High Festive Days and Afternoons / Next to two preachings at the End / for Preparation [?] Holy Communion and blissful death / introduced / In which everything is briefly explained / and directly to be used for edification'.
