Circa 18th Century Pennsylvania Schwenkfelder Manuscript Handwritten Book (Letters, Sacraments, Catechism) [From the Library of Moravian Bishop Edward Rondthaler of Winston-Salem, North Carolina]

By Martin Johns; [and] George Kriebel; [and] George Dittrich; et al.

Pennsylvania: Handwritten Manuscript. First Edition First Printing . Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo. 215 pages. The binding measures 6 5/8 inches tall by about 4 1/4 inches wide. Housed in a modern custom-made cloth slipcase with burgundy silk moire pastedowns within. Hardcover bound in full leather with a ribbed spine and with rolls on the front and rear boards in blind. The binding is superbly preserved. All edges red. The hinges are sturdy and the leather is attractive and clean. Written in very neat old style German on both the rectos and the versos of the leaves. The pages have chain lines, and some of the pages show the lightly drawn ink lines for boarders for the text. Some of the capital letters in the text have some extra decorations (no color, and no images). There is a two-page Register at the front. There are 16 sections. Some of the text appears to be copies of letters, and some are a form of Catechism, written in question and answer format. There are dates within the text of 1697 to 1699, but the style of the binding is 18th century, and the paper also seems consistent with 18th century paper. ~ The book had belonged to Moravian Bishop Rondthaler of Winston-Salem. It does not have his signature in it, but it does have what looks like part of his trimmed calling card on which is printed "Rt. Rev. Edward Rondthaler, D.D. / Winston-Salem." There is an ink inscription on the front flyleaf dated 1851 which looks like "G(..?..) Kriebel / his Book June 11 (or "the"?) g / 1851." A name at the top of the first page of text is Martin Johns. Other names in the text are "Susana Dittrichen" (page 37 and 64); "George Dittrich" (page 101; the end of this section on page 105 bears the date 1699 and 98); "Caspar Schwenck" is mentioned in the text at the top of page 142; the initials "G.K." are at the beginning of a letter on page 150; the name "George Kriebel" is in the heading of the section beginning on page 176 (an the initials "M.J." are at the end); Susanna Dittrichen" is mentioned again on page 181 at the beginning of another section (this section ends on the next page with a date of 1697 an the initial "M." ~ We have found reference to a Rev. George Kriebel in Pennsylvania (1732-1805) who was associated with the Schwenkfelders. We have also found a Martin John (or Johns), also associated with the Schwenkfelders and who wrote on music and hymns.
