Bibles - Quantity: 1 - Book

The specialists at the Bavarian State Library | Eastern Europe department answered my inquiry about the work that is bound in two wooden covers as follows:
"The print is obviously an edition of the New Testament or part of it in Church Slavonic script. The latter is not characteristic of a particular period, but is still in use today in the Eastern Churches.
Whether it is the complete New Testament I cannot tell you, but the photographed pages contain the Acts of the Apostles, Paul's letters to the Romans and to Philemon, and the Revelation of John.
The pages are counted (with Old Cyrillic numbers), the first page is page 5, the verse count starts with verse 51; the last page count is 314 without verse count. Thus at least the title page and the first pages are missing. If it was the complete New Testament, the title may have been "Novyj zavět".
Age-classification: The material with which the bookbinder bound the book gives an indication. He obviously used paper from an old magazine. You can recognise the part of a picture marked "Ch. Clérice" at the bottom right. Charles Clérice was a French illustrator. Around 1910 he started to mark his drawings with "Ch. Clérice". Presumably book dates from this period."
Pages partly waterstained, but always legible. Some are loose. Last five pages damaged in the middle, but can still be read for the most part. Some pages have become damp towards the end of the book, are therefore stained.
