About this Item

octavo. 400 pp. H. P. Kraus, the world famous rare book seller who specialized in medieval illuminated manuscripts, was convinced that the Constance missal was printed before the Gutenberg Bible. The author here compares the different states of wear in the watermarks in the Constance Missal with those in dated books. He conclusively established that it was printed in 1473, nearly 20 years after the Gutenberg Bible. Kraus still believed it to be earlier even though the evidence was clear. Bound in blue cloth, spine lettering gilt. previous owner's name. A very nice, clean copy of this interesting work. Bookseller Inventory # 008375
