[STAHL (J.F.P.) - printer].

Empfindungen am feyerlichen Tage der Heimführung Ihrer Landgräflichen Durchlaucht Frau, Frau Wilhelminem Louisen, Kur-Prinzessin von Baden, neuvermählten Frau Gemahlin Seiner Landgräflichen Durchlaucht Herrn, Herrn Ludewig, Erb-Prinzen zu Hessen von sämmtlichen Unterthanen des Amts Seeheim.

Printed on silk, with an engraved title vignette and head and tail piece.

Folio. [380 x 253 x 7 mm]. [2]ff. Bound in contemporary green silk over boards, yellow silk pastedowns. (A little worn around the edges).
Darmstadt: Joh. Fr. Pet. Stahl, 1804.

Printing on silk is difficult because of the unpredictable warp and weft of the material. Here Stahl has not only successfully printed these gratulatory verse in a Gothic type but has included three finely engraved vignettes. The work has been fully bound in silk making this a coherent tribute to the use of silk in all aspects of book production.
