: SOLD : Pair of Antique religious books
A gorgeous pair of small antique religious book from France with leather covers.
The brown one 'Paroissien de Tours' features beautiful brass edges and clasp and a very nice embossed design of the Holy Cross. Inside you will also find a lovely calligraphy where you can read that the book was a present made to a girl named Maria for her first communion in 1880.
The black one 'Manuel du Chretien' features two beautiful illustrations inside.
They are both in good vintage condition for such old books. They do show signs of age such as wear and tear on the leather covers, fading gold on the edges on the pages, brown spots on the paper and a couple of pages coming off. But they present very well and have that charm that only old books get!
These two small antique books would look great on a pile of other vintage books.
Measures: 12.5cm x 8.5cm x 3.5cm.
