The small size of this psalm book is typical of Scandinavian Lutheran texts. The colored bookbinding, however, is quite unusual. The binding probably dates from the rule of King Frederic V of Denmark, between 1746 and 1766. The tooling depicts two cherubs crowning Frederic at the top, with rampant lions and the king’s monogram below. The small silver clasps are delicate and finely wrought. Typical of the era, the silversmith did not use a hallmark, and the artist’s identity is not known.
