About this Item

Proper and legal performance of the liturgy, and especially of the Mass, was an overriding concern?one might say an obsession?of the post-Tridentine Catholic Church up until the II Vatican Council. Printing had made possible the standardization of liturgical texts and rubrics to a degree unknown in the middle ages; the Holy See issued a whole series of directions to avoid heresy, sacrilege, or an invalid celebration; and Jansenism made scrupulosity the order of the day. Commentaries like this one, printed in small type and focussing on every little thing that could possibly go wrong with the Mass, became more and more common: educating clergy in how to celebrate the liturgy flawlessly according to the rubrics. This is the second edition of this commentary on the rubrics of the Mass by Paulo Maria Quarti (fl. ca. 1663), a clerk regular; it was first published in 1674, but here carries added commentaries on processions, including the Litany of the Saints, and on blessings. The title-page is handsomely printed in red and black with a woodcut vignette, and the text is simply ornamented with a few remarkable woodcut initials and headpieces. Scarce. Folio (34.8 cm, 13.75"). [12] ff., 464 pp., [14] ff., 192 pp., [6] ff. Quarter treed paper over vellum; quaint paper title label in red and black. Some abrasion to spine and edges; endpapers wormed; hinges (inside) open,with sewing holding to visible flat "cords." Foxing, variously. Vellum page tab at the beginning of De Processionibus.
