Family Grimoire

Actually, a family Bible, but grimoire seems much, much more appropriate.

My family has the fortune of having an absolutely amazing family Bible dating from the first half of the 1600s in Switzerland.  Written in Swiss German (although my family and last name are Romansh, the rarest of the languages spoken in Switzerland today) it is mammoth and filled with gorgeous illustrations.
