Extremely rare Gospel of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna (Romanov Dynasty) from 1741. Size: 33 x 22 x 9 cm. With signature of the famous nobleman Matveev!
Important! The cover has been restored, but the oak wood planks have been preserved in their old style.
Covered in velvet. The details on the cover are new and have no jewellery value (in the original they were made of gold, rubies and diamonds).
The book was restored in the 18th and 19th centuries. The sheets are glued. The corners of the pages suffered the most due to frequent use. Dirt and wax residues are present.
