4 Die Kleine Geistliche Harfe 
Lancaster PA Johann Bar & Sons 1870 Hardcover Fair No Dust Jacket Book 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall 
First Mennonite hymnal produced in America; 1870 6th Edition in German. This hymnal was an attempt to provide a more uniform guide in Anabaptist gatherings. The book is divided into two sections. The first shorter part comprises 30 psalms. The second section, which has a separate title page, contains 475 hymns and an appendix. While the psalms have occasional brief musical scripts, the vast majority of the hymns are purely textual. Book Condition : Fair; front and back boards are detached (originally they were hinged on the text block side) and stained; mild foxing and age toning most noticeable of the end papers and text block. While there are occasional heavier spots there is less foxing and age toning than I would expect for its age. The spine is chipped and most of the side titling is gone. The binding for the pages is intact and secure, all pages are present, and the entire piece could certainly be re-bound. There is a light musty smell to the book.
