Roman Breviary

This large, 188 page manuscript in Latin, listing prayers for the feast days, was made expressly for clergy at the Liberian Basilica in Rome in the late 1600s. It just arrived to us after we won it at an auction of rare manuscripts and books held in New York City several weeks ago. The brown and red handwritten script is very fine.  I like the patterned paper cover binding and the decorations at the page edges as well.
