I just inherited this book from my grandmother. It is in Czech and the side reads "kancionál" (Google translate: Hymn-book). It has a leather cover with grooved detailing, a Virgin Mary inlay and what appear to be ivory button details. It is also trimmed with what I think is brass and has a brass clasp as well. I was hoping someone would know something about this book. Perhaps the year it is likely from and if it is something anyone would have had access to, or only the clergy. Really, anything would be helpful as knowing more about it would make it an even more treasured possession.
Thank you for your time and interest.
