SALE I LOVE old books, particularly small size leather books with Religious content and beautiful binding, so I had to buy this 6 1/2" Leather METHODIST HYMNS book from 1849. At some time, it must have gotten wet, as you can see from the soiling on some of the pages, and the fact that it is a bit warped on the outside. Still, if I slide it between all my other miniature and small books in my collection, some of that would take care of itself after awhile. I love the brown leather binding with the burgundy or wine colored section on the spine that says METHODIST HYMNS. These small books were often carried in the saddlebags of the traveling ministers.
The condition isn't perfect, but this is a really amazing book from 1849 with the words to the hymns of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The title page uses this Bible Scripture to describe the book: "I will sing with the Spirit, and will sing with the understanding also. I Corinthians xiv 15." Take a look at all the pictures to see the condition, knowing that it is not perfect by a long shot, but still amazing after 163 years! If it doesn't sell, I will gladly add to my collection. I just thought that since I already had several METHODIST HYMNS in my collection, I would share.
