18075 HORE BEATISSIME VIRGINIS MARIE AD LEGITIMŪ EBORACENSIS ECCLESIE RITUM, sm. 4to. woodcuts, wanting leaf H 8, fine copy in blue morocco extra, leather joints, gilt edges, by H. Walther, £150.

Rothomagi, G. Bernard et J. Cousin, 1517

The extraordinary rarity of all the York Service Books is too well-known to require any comment. Of this volume, no other copy has been recorded, and it is probably unique. One feature of especial interest is the great quantity of English matter which is found in it. There are long and explicatory headings, recounting, in English, and with much greater diffuseness than we see in other books of "Hours," the origin, nature, and object of the various prayers. There are several MS. notes which were written probably about 1550, and which betray the hand of a bitterly hostile Reformer. The absent leaf was missing more than a century ago, as a note to that effect appears at the bottom of the preceding page (probably in Herbert's handwriting of about the year 1760).

18076 KEMPIS. Cy comence le Liure tressalutaire Intitule De limitacion nostreseignr jesnerist (sic), sm. 4to. PRINTED ON VELLUM (only one other copy known) and ornamented with 15 MINIATURES FINELY ILLUMINATED IN GOLD AND COLOURS, leaf 39 cut out, a fine volume in old calf, with arms of N. J. Foucault in gold on sides, EXTREMELY RARE, £84.


Paris, J. Lambert, 1493

The name of the printer and date are partially erased. The beauty of the paintings, the value of the book as a nearly unique vellum-impression, and the bit of literary history embodied in its title (copied below) invest this volume with a singularly interesting character. The portion of the intitulation given above is succeeded by the words which follow here :— "lequel a este par aucuns iusques a psent attribue a saint Bernard, ou maistre Jehan gerson. pose que soit autremēt. Quar lacteur dicelluy soubz nostre seignr fust vng venerable pere & tresdeuot religieux chanoine regle. viuat en son temps en obseruace reguliere Jouxte la regle monseigneur saint augustin nome frere thomas de Kempis. . . . Translate de latin en francois. . . ."


a Splendid Illuminated Manuscript on Vellum, containing the Gallican Missal of the use of Langres, and, from the escutcheons which appear on some of the pages, probably executed for JEAN D'AMBOISE, afterwards Bishop of Langres (1481-97); written on 154 leaves of pure vellum (size 12 in. by 9 in.), with numerous handsome borders composed of flowers, fruit, grotesque figures, birds, coats of arms, scrolls, &c. 25 large bordered initial letters, each historiated with a fine MINIATURE PAINTING, and several hundred smaller capital and initial letters in gold and colours, blue morocco, broad dentelle borders in gold, silk linings, gilt edges, by Derome le jeune, with his ticket, £80. About 1470

This volume is not the complete Missal, and is singularly arranged. The Commune Sanctorum is placed at the beginning, followed by the second part (Easter to Epiphany) of the Ordinarium de Tempore, and the Canon of the Mass stands separately at the end of the book.
