Dimensions: 26.8 x 10 x 6 cm. Golden page edges, in good condition with only very few water stains. Mostly printed in Gothic letters.
The silver inspection marks: 1820 ( year letter ‘L’)), hallmarked with the Minerva head with an ‘A’ (833/1,000 silver), ‘AW’ of Abraham van Willenswaard, Schoonhoven?

I intentionally didn’t polish the silver to preserve its patina.
