Lyra Germanica: Hymns for the Sundays and Chief Festivals of the Christian Year

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts and Green, in London (1865). Hardback.

Translated from the German by Catherine Winkworth. With illustrations by John Leighton, F.S.A. Fourth Edition.

The engravings in this volume are executed by T. Bolton, J. Cooper, G & E. Dalziel, G. De Wilde, W. Green, H. Harral, H. Leighton, W. Murden, G. Pearson and J. Swain from designs by E. Armitage, J. Flexman, M. Lawless, C. Keene, S. Marks and J. Leighton.

From the Preface:
THE FOLLOWING HYMNS are selected from the Chevalier Bunsen's Versuch eines allgemeinen Gesang und Gebetbuchs, published in 1833. From the large number there given, about nine hundred, little more than one hundred have been chosen. This selection contains many of those best known and loved in Germany; but in a work of this size it is impossible to include all that have become classical in that home of Christian poetry. In reading them it must be remembered that they are hymns, not sacred poems, though from their length and the intricacy of their metres, many of them may seem to English readers adapted rather to purposes of private than of public devotion.

CONDITION: Used, good. Corners of boards are bumped and rubbed. Head and tail of spine have tears but are intact. The binding is split from the spine inside the front cover for about half of it's length. Page edges are in gilt and the boards are elaborately decorated. There is an inscription on the inside of the first free end-paper. (See photos)
