Very nice! Is that an olive branch? And what are the Encyclopedic looking volumes?
It is a palm leaf left over from Palm Sunday. The Encyclopedic volumes are set one and two of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers. The set of the Ante-Nicene Fathers is below and not in the photograph. I believe that these works are on-line now. They were not at the time that I purchased these.
As an interesting note, the two black books weighing down that top shelf are German Bibles, one from the late 1800's and one from 1901. The 1901 version does not have any pages missing (unlike the 1800's one), and the front piece says (in German)
"The Bible, or the complete Holy Scriptures translated by Dr. Marin Luther, St. Louis Mo, Concordia Publishing House, 1901."
This Bible contains all of the Apocryphal books except the Maccabees III and IV. Concordia Publishing House is the publisher for the LCMS Lutheran Church.
