The Christian Minstrel -An 1855 Book Of Psalm Tunes, Anthems, And Chants

I just love books, and that includes old books.  I found this one today.  What really got my attention was the handmade fabric cover that was on it.  That fabric helped preserve the cover and keep it clean over the years.  The pages are a soft almost leathery feeling paper ....

Selected from the most popular works in Europe and America, designed for the use of churches, singing-schools, and societies.

The fabric cover had been on for awhile.  The fabric was worn on the edges and inside the cover are faded lines from the thread.
