This leaf is from a very rare book containing the office of the Catholic Mass. It is printed on fine hand-laid paper in red and black ink. One side includes a woodblock illustration of a king praying and the face of God appearing in the clouds above. An exceedingly early example of fine printing and Gothic woodblock illustration.
