[Silk Calendar of Saint's Days for the Year 1835].

(Germany: 1834). 12 loose cards of paper and pink silk, plus two cover cards of metal, gold, and paper. Each month lists the dates with their corresponding days of the week and saintly figures. The cards are headed by an arch cutout, backed in mesh, upon which rests an embossed paper design of a basket of flowers or a wreath, alternating across the year, painted in gold, pink, and blue. The cover cards' interiors are printed with a hand-colored image of a man bearing a rifle; the front card displays him loading the gun with a ramrod, so that then in the rear image, he is presumably prepared to fire as he looks toward his hunting dogs felling a stag. The outward-facing sides of the covers are identical designs embossed in gold and painted in red, green, and blue. Publishers tags found on interior of upper cover. All together housed in gold-brushed paper slipcase, with ribbon for removal. Save some expected rubbing to edges of cards and box, and some bumps to metal of covers, a near fine set. (2 1/8 by 1 11/16; 56x44mm). Item #28921
