Exceptionally crisp and clean unused copy. USTC 437374 . Nijhoff-Kronenburg N°3539. Only three copies of which two in Northern France and one in Belgium (Mechelen, Groot Seminarie, now K.U.L. Library). The Missal, containing the liturgy or office of the mass in the Roman Catholic Church is one of the most important liturgical books. Because of the frequent liturgical changes and the daily use of the missal, particularly the canon, old copies in good shape are very rare. Most copies were either completely worn or discarded as being obsolete. This edition, for the diocese of Tournai (which comprised the County of Flanders), is the second printing. Of the printer Christoffel of Ruremond it is known that he died in Westminster prison in 1531. He was arrested in England because he sold the New Testament in English, translated by Tyndale to a bookbinder called John Row (see Y. Foxe, Ecclesiasticall History.London 1576); see also Anne Rouzet, Dictionnaire pp.193-194. USTC N° 437374 . N° de réf. du libraire 14964
