About this Item

The Catholic mass is big and splendid but in this book it is made small while still maintaining splendor via the binding on a miniature book designed to guide children through the ritual. Binding: Original wrap-around red morocco, richly gilt on back cover with a Virgin and on front one with a foliate design on a finely ruled background, spine gilt and with title; leather of rear cover extends across fore-edge onto front cover and is attached there with a tongue slipped into a strap (wallet style). All edges gilt. Provenance: Gift inscription "Laura, from C. & S. M., June 7, 1869." Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPBE, KVK, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library => fail to find another copy. Miniature (43 mm; 1.625"). 122 pp., 6 plates (including frontis.). Welsh, Miniature Books, 4378 for a work of same title, different place of publication, and approximately same number of pages, but with no mention of plates. Light wear to binding, gilt of rear cover faded; the tongue of the binding is rubbed under its strap and may be missing a small piece at the end. Interior clean and fresh; over all very good.
