2 Breviarium Romanum Ex Decreto Sacrosancti Concilii Tridentini restitutum, B. PII V. Pontificis Maximi Jussu Editum, Clementis VIII. & Urbani VIII. Auctoritate recognitum; In Quatuor Anni Tempora divisum. Pars Hiemalis.
Sumptibus Pauli Balleonii Venetiis 1707 Leather Bound Fair Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Breviarium Romanum 1707. The binding is in good condition but with some historic worming holes to the pastedowns and, to a lesser extent, endpapers. Worming is not invasive but there are some holes to a block of text towards the back of the book, approx. p. cxlx onwards - a small single hole to the first few pages, then a double hole; pages clxxxi-ccxviii have a slightly larger hole which partly obscures letters in the last two lines of text. There is a long repaired tear to page 225/226 - this is quite neat; there is a small amount of loss to the words in the bottom margin corner, affecting the bottom two lines of text. A few other minor repairs to pages. Four engraved illustrations including frontispiece. Black and red text in two columns on the page. Some pages are loose and a number of others are loosening. This copy would benefit from some careful restoration. Page edges marbled. pp. [16], 624, ccxliv. 24cm. Ribbon page marker is present but fragile. A HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 309094

Law Society binding, bookplate on the front pastedown, some circular stamps to pages, and presentation inscription inside. Complete with 26 plates, as required, including 2 folding maps. Plate XIII has been used as a frontispiece and the plate has cracked near the spine, from handling. All of the other plates, including the two maps, have been bound in at the back of the book. The plates all have a pale stain in a narrow margin to the edges; they are otherwise remarkably clean (Beesley plates frequently suffer from heavy foxing and discolouration). Marbled endpapers and page edges. Rather unusually this copy has an original advertisement sheet, for the publication by subscription of the book, bound into the front of the book just before page 1; rarely seen, this is a nice addition. The binding is firm and tight This is a good solid copy of the now very scarce definitive history of Banbury. pp. xvi, 668, [26] plates.
