Throwing this out to the historians in the group:

A client brought me a large "Choral Book" for cleaning. It's been in his =
family for at least 50 years.  he remembers his parents friends using it =
as a coffee table at parties.He wants to know something about it, value =
and whether it should be in a museum or whether he should pas it on to =
his children.
Description: 26" x 17" x 3". Sewen on 4 heavy cords. Leather (calf?) 9 =
rivets on front cover. Leather is nailed on to the wooden covers. The =
number "23" is on a paper label on the spine.  Book block is vellum =
sheets of choral music calligraphied in black and red.=20
=20
Last page reads "dum Mag Secch 23 [OR Seccl 223] ana de 1804 pr el M. R. =
P .P. do por F Fran co Gonzalez y a sus espe' zas."
=20
There is a fill sheet on the fron board which reads "Confesso este ano =
de 1797 enesta Inglesia Parroquial de santa Cruz de Ezixa."
=20
The whole looks Medevil but of course isn't.  Any clues?  Is this one of =
those, "oh yeah, there were lots of those about. I scrape of the vellum =
and reuse it?"
