Lovely little Huguenot Psalm book , New Testament , around 1710 / 1716 - with beautiful 18th century silverwork with images of birds & hart shaped corner-pieces. Nouveau Testament & Psaumes de David (Mis en rime Francoise par Clement Marot et Theodore de Beze) - Amsterdam, J. Both covers with the following beautiful silver ornaments: central oval medallion incised with a bird dove of peace?
And flowers, heart-shaped incised corner ornaments, within outlined edges, two shaped and incised clasps with engraved owner's initials R. And the date'1734' on the inside, catches, gilt and gauffered edges, 8vo./ Les Psaumes de David... In good condition, complete, solid, fresh & clean. A very fine, luxurious example. Online, there is another copy by the same publishers, with very comparable central medallions and clasps but less ornate. That copy is with a Huguenot provenance, which might partly explain the French language edition and the dove of peace? I can send more photo's.
