1907 Esperanto hymn and service book

I transcribed and have just now published the Esperanto booklet Ordo de Diservo — “Order of God-service” — prepared for the third Universal Congress of Esperantists, in Cambridge, England in 1907. (A brief Wikipedia entry, if you read Esperanto.)

Some — Esperanto readers anyway — will love the charming original hymns while others will enjoy the translated Anglican morning prayer service.

Thanks both to Ros’ Haruo of Biblioteko Culbert, Seattle, who published scans made by Karl Heinz Schaeffer from a copy in the possession of the German Esperanto Library, Aalen
