[Paris: A. Pilinski, 1883.] Slim 4to, [10]ff. each reproducing a woodblock and colored by hand. Brown morocco extra, covers blind-stamped with fleurs-de-lys, gilt edges. A fine copy with the early bookplate of W.J. Le Mattre. Issued in the series “Monuments de la xylographie, 5”, this reproduction in exact facsimile of a unique blockbook printing of the Lord’s Prayer is extremely scarce. We found numerous facsimiles issued by Pilinski but not this one though WorldCat does note 2 copies each in the US, UK, and France. Although this copy has no text, the note online indicates that it was “par Adam Pilinski ... Précédée d'une notice par Gustave Pawlowski” which would indicate that there was text associated with the facsimile which was part of a series that included the “Danse Macabre”, “Apocalypse”, “Ars moriendi”, “Ars memorandi”, “Cantica Canticorum”, and “Les Neuf Preux”. (Item Id: 106082)
