    I am embarrassed that I don’t remember more German. I’m trying to fill in where Tony left off.

    'The Little Orchard planted with the most beautiful devotions for Catholic Christians'. (Tony, I could not read the sixth word, so I am taking your word on it! How does that look to you?) ‘With the permission of the superior’ per Tony.

    First devotion displayed is a Marian devotion.

    The second devotion is entitled "Morning Devotion".

    Beautiful prayer book. Not a bible.

    It’s traditional to cite permissions in Catholic devotional literature. Follows a link to some rules for printed Catholic devotional literature. miKKo

    Wow, love the frame! Just beautiful!

    I just saw your note about the ladle. You are too good, sir! Thank you so much!!! : ) You have a surprise coming your way, too. Might elicit a startled grin when you see it. Despite your facility for finding exceptional and most unusual antique books and illustrations, I think you'll probably not have seen this item before. I'll give you two hints - it's perhaps 130 years old, and it's from London. Thanks again! miKKo

    So sorry, Tony. I am useless, I fear. I know the word for 'onion'. I remember calling my brother an onion. 'Du bist eine zwiebel.' Will that help? No? Sorry, once upon a time, I could summon forth the polite small change conversation, and even manage good grammar in that limited realm. However, I could never really master German, no not even close. You're the man tonight.....miKKo

    Yes, schonsten makes sense. I need to consult a real German dictionary. Those online ones aren't quite the same. I am not happy at all with what I've come up with. Still needs more work.

    thanks everyone. i'm glad that it is inciting so much interest. personally, i really like santos and religious wall items - bleeding hearts and thorny crowns. i have a really, really beautiful, large ... i don't know what they're called. it's a large religious print - some devotional thing... will post pics later...
