Default Re: Reading Old English

Nina, that's seems like printed german from the 18th or early 19th century Jube. I have books printed in that script. However it seems to contain Danish words too

I have some old Danish handwritten documents from the 19th century but those are much harder to read.
(they come from a Danish family that emigrated to the USA from the Haderslev / Abenraa area)
