Leather and wood Bible binding
- Dear List,
A couple 18th c German Scripture books (one a Bible/hymn book) I
inherited were published in Philly. The 1765 one has the most wear and
there is wood showing beneath the leather. Would this have been more a
special order as what was previously stated on the list was wood under
leather was not 18th c. ?
Our local Amish bishop in PA. stated that the hymns in the one were still
used in his congregation today.
