An original leaf from this rare book containing the office of the Catholic Mass. Printed on both sides in red and black ink. One side contains a five-line, figural historiated initial D in the style of medieval illuminated manuscripts. This leaf is a nice example of early printing and Gothic woodcut illustration.
Very good with tiny bit of hinge residue in one blank margin.
