Textured black end papers with gold dentilled border decorations on the versos of the covers, both front and back. Approbations present and the date given is that of the approbations. Title continued: "Containing moreover a collection of approved prayers compiled from the best sources, in accordance with all recent pontifical decrees." No copyright date but the church calendar starts with 1940. In all likelihood, this particular edition is after that prepared by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. John F. Galvin rather than the more common one by Fr. Sylvester Juergen. Frontis illustration of Saints Peter and Paul in Rome. All text with the exception of the introduction, contents, and the gospel interludes within the text are bilingual (Latin and English) in a 2 column per page. presentation. The supplement (the last 11 pages) consists of those masses and prayers which are particular to Ireland. Two marker ribbons present though frayed at the ends. All edges are gilt and gauffered with some hand painted colouring on the designs. The colouring here is faded and the edge gilding is slightly dulled but only slightly. The blank preliminaries and blank back pages have been doodled on in green pencil by a child. Fortunately that is all that they turned their artistic talents to. Otherwise the text is quite clean and the binding of the text block is solid with minor weaknesses noted at the front and back end paper hinges though these have been repaired. The external gilded lettering is faded though quite readable. Previous owner's dated inscription on the first blank preliminary. All together, a very nice copy of what one could call an extremely scarce edition.
