Rare 1860 Paroissien Roman. Antique French Catholic Prayer Book. French Missal.
An antique roman catholic missal, luxury liturgical "Paroissien Romain" published in 1860 by Alfred Mame et Fils, Tours.
It is preciously decorated with an embossed leather cover (in the shape of an arched window, front and back), sumptuous blue edges with gilded "stars" and the letters '"A. D" in "gold" on the front.
This book is absolutely stunning, with delicate tissue paper sheets, that protect the exquisite illustrations, throughout.
This 162 year old book is in amazing condition. The spine leather is loose and has become partially detached, down one side, but is still completely intact and useable. Inside there is no damage at all, all the pages and images are still perfectly intact. It is missing it's little metal bar, that would have held it shut, across the two metal lobes, which are still attached. None of this detracts whatsoever from it's allure and charm. It "feel's" wonderful.
The photos give you a small glimpse of it's text and illustrations. In Latin and French. It contains "Les Offices de Tous les Dimanches et des Principales Fêtes de L'année." (Sunday Services and Principle Christian celebrations.)
It measures 13cms/5" long x 10cms/4" wide x 4cms/ 1½" deep.
It weighs 380gms/ 13½ozs.
