(Officia Sanctorum)

Romae: Typis Jacopatii et al, 1739. Collection of approx. 45 devotions; varying from 1 to 16 pages in length, with the average being about 4-5 pages and each paginated separately; Latin text, with occasional explanatory footnotes; many of these are printed red & black and in two columns; varying text printing dates, our research indicates a spread of 1739-1855, with perhaps some earlier pieces as well-there are different typefaces, quality of paper and other differences, from devotion to devotion; St. Joseph; B. Gregorii X. Pontificis, et Confessoris; S. Hilarii Episcopi Confessoris et Ecclesiae Doctoris; S. Peter Damiani Cardinalis Episcopi Ostiensis; S. Hyacinthae de Mariscottis Virginis; S. Titi Episcopi Confessoris; S. Gabrielis Archangeli; S. Andreae Apostoli; Sancti Fidelis A Sigmaringa Protomartyris Sac. Congreg. De Propaganda Fide; S. Isidori Agricolae Confessoris; S. Joannis Nepomuceni Martyris; S. Felicis A Cantalicio Confessoris (2) different; Sancti Paschalis Baylon Ordinis Sancti Francisci and many more; printed on quality paper; approx. 4 3/4" x 7 3/8" size; bound in full polished brown leather, with gilt cover ornament representing the shield, hat and tassels perhaps of a cardinal, may have also been silver-gilt when made, as the points of the 'star' surrounding the shield have tarnished; simple gilt rule surrounding these and gilt ruled spine, flat back, with one compartment with gilt chain design; gilt titles, stating "Officia Sanctorum", all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; some edge, tips wear & rubbing to the covers; a little faint discoloration in the gutter of some leaves; still, fairly fresh and in very good condition, a handsome binding and interesting 18th - 19th century Christianity & ritual historical material, in an interesting binding worthy of further research. Very Good (Item ID: 19784)
