Notes:

Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The bookplate on wove paper is pasted inside the front cover. The text in Fraktur covers the lower portion of the document. Above it is an angel with a trumpet. The item is framed by a decorative border. This bookplate is in M. Valentin Wudrians seel. Creutz=Schule (Ephrata, Pa.: Drucks u. Verlags der Brüderschaft, 1762)  (PA GER Ephrata 1762 W952).  An additional inscription dated September 25, 1765, identifies Samuel Weyli as the owner.


Notes:

The angel with trumpet motif relates closely to ones drawn by Johann Adam Eyer and other artists working primarily in Bucks County.  See Amsler, pp. 256-265.
