"Silbereinband" or solid silver book binding (bible cover), made in the late 17th century , likely Bavarian.
A silversmith skillfully made this silbereinband, or solid silver binding, in the late 17th century. Don't much care for the creepy motifs of death, but his is still an amazing work of art!

"Silbereinband" or solid silver book binding (bible cover), made in the late 17th century If we love God's Word we will naturally want to make it visually splendid.
"Silbereinband" or solid silver book binding (bible cover), made in the late 17th century. The artist, likely Bavarian, executed the design in relief. Christ, holding a cross, is represented on the spine, with a snake and a skull at his feet, symbolizing his triumph over Satan death. On the front of the binding is a beautiful interpretation of the Last Supper, similar to the style of Italian sculptures of the sixteenth century.

This is a photograph of some vintage books. It captures the great beauty of even the old things that are sometimes hidden from us today. It is significant to me because I have always fancied old objects. I've always been interested in the history of the old and have acquired a great deal of appreciation for it all. The greater world should take note of all older objects to become aware of the fact that we wouldn't have what we have now without having what we used to have then.
LOVE old books like this! I want to fill a library with books this old!!

Proof that carrying a Bible or book with you is a good idea: Civil War Prayer Book which stopped a Bullet at the Battle of Roanoke Island, N. C. and saved the life of Private Edward R. Graton, Co. C, 25th Regt. Mass. while it was tucked inside his uniform coat breast pocket.

Civil War Prayer Book which stopped a Bullet at the Battle of Roanoke Island, N. C. and saved the life of Private Edward R. Graton, Co. C, 25th Regt. Mass. while it was tucked inside his uniform coat breast pocket. this happened to my great plus grandfather but the bible had a metal covering. still it hurt his shoulder. you can see the slight shoulder slump in pics.
Our late neighbor, George Morris, was saved when a bullet in WW II was stopped by the New Testament in his breast pocket. It was amazing to see the New Testament with our own eyes.

Love the look of old book covers! You could use them for many other things than just reading....for example an art journal!
I love reading and I also love collecting antique books. Book covers were so beautiful back in the day!
Beautiful book covers on antique books. Art. <> “My hours of leisure I spent in reading the best authors, ancient and modern, being always provided with a good number of books; and when I was ashore, in observing the manners and dispositions of the people, as well as learning their language; wherein I had a great facility, by the strength of my memory.” ― Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels
Vintage books. Need I say more! Obsessed! Though I am VERY picky about the antique books I am collecting. I am very particular about certain illustrators. I am not going to be one of those people that just buys vintage books in bulk because they like the look. I am buying books that I actually want to read with illustrations I am dying to own and covers that also look beautiful on a shelf.

♥CLAIM GOD'S SPECIAL PROMISE ♥ The Bible is filled with promises; in fact there are an astounding 8,810 of them. These promises of God cover the spectrum of human need. God gives to us a promise for every problem. When the storms of life hit with hurricane force, God has promised in His Word, " When you pass through the waters, I will be with you " ( Isa. 43 : 2 ). The key word is through. He will bring us through our difficulties. No wave is too high, no crashing breaker is too strong, and no undertow is too formidable. As we trust in God's strength, we will not go down, but through. He has brought us through, and now He will lead us on. Search God's Word, find the special promise He has for you, write it down, memorize it, frame and display it, then go on and live by it.
