The lozenge is surrounded by four corner pieces composed of the same tools as the lozenge and the entire design has a dog tooth roll border. The design in repeated on the rear board. The flat spine is tooled in gold repeating the central lozenge, corner pieces and border of the cover design in the same tools; all edges are gilt and gauffered; the endpapers have a block-printed design of flowers, vines, berries leaves, and pointillé curls in blue, mauve and brown. Printed in German black-letter (Gothic script).
A collection of three 18th century Lutheran texts printed by Wilhelm Gottlieb Korn.
Burg's Allgemeines und vollständiges (general and complete Evangelical Singing Book for Royal Family of Prussian Silesia) includes a prayer book as well as epistles & gospels for church year, combining all previous Silesian hymn books. Note: Silesia is a historical region of Central Europe located mostly in modern Poland, with small parts in the Czech Republic and Germany; Frederick II of Prussia captured Silesia without a struggle in January 1741 - Burg became close to Frederick, was named Inspector of Bresslau's religious council (Consistory), and created the present collection for Fredrick 3 years later.
Geistliches Beth-Opfer oder: Auserlesene Gebethe: zur Haus-, Kirchen-, und Reise-Andacht (Spiritual Victim of Beth or: Exquisite Prayers, for House, Church and Travel Devotions), is a collection of Lutheran prayers and devotions often used with Burg's hymnal above.
Die Augspurgische Confession: oder Glaubensbekenntnis, wie solche anno 1530 (The Augspurgische Confession: or creed, such as those handed over to Augspurg in 1530.) is the basic confession, or theological statement of the Lutheran church, presented June 25, 1530 at the Diet of Augsburg to the emperor Charles V by Lutheran princes and imperial free cities.
Very good+, with Allgemeines und vollständiges missing the title page and frontis.; light soiling to the binding and rubbing to the tooling on the spine, and oxidization to the tooled gold.
An exceptionally scarce 18th century German stained vellum binding with block printed eps.
All three texts in the present Sammelband are also exceptionally scarce. OCLC shows only one copy of the 1745 first edition of Allgemeines und vollständiges, 3 copies of Geistliches Beth-Opfer oder: Auserlesene Gebethe and 4 copies of the Die Augspurgische Confession.
