A pretty copy of the Mylius Hymnal (first published in 1781 as a reformed work to reflect the drift of Enlightenment thought), this in an especially pleasing decorated German (provincial?) binding with a contemporary slipcase that has preserved the velvet covers and onlays well. With contemporary family notes in MS (1838 et seq.) on the first and final blank leaves.
