Book appears to be bound in vellum, but may be is some other off-white animal leather; I am no expert. Some minor edge and corner wear with toning and possibly soiling to surface. Small numeral on front in pencil, upper left. Internally there is some toning and a few small insect holes scattered througout. Overall the book is in quite remarkable condition. G+, maybe bordering on VG-. The frontis portrait of San Benito is not present. ; B&W Illustrations; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 136 pages; Poetic biography of St. Beniti of Palermo, an African who was born a slave but became the head of a monastery and was canonized. The book is in Spanish and written as a long poem. Still, this is the story of one of the earliest black Saints. Bookseller Inventory #
