Comment

The elaborate handwriting infill of this fraktur is similar to one pictured in Stopp,1:93 of the same edition. The mother’s maiden and married names on this piece are the same, possibly a mistake. This is the only copy of this edition that lists a location, written in at bottom as there was no place for it in the print section.

Condition

Good
