24mo - 14.5 x 9.5 cm.; 573 - [3] pp. Paper wraps with black lettering. The date stated of 1923 is that of the approbations. A new translation from the Latin into French by Dom E. Pichery. It should be noted that the text is in French only, the original Latin text is not present. The introduction for this volume runs up to page 107 followed by the text which begins with the original preliminary writings and preface: "Lettre de Castor, Évêque d'Apt à Cassien, abbé de Marseille", "Lettre-préface de Cassien à Castor, évêque d'Apt", and then the text. The covers are soiled and stained (tide marks) as is the spine which is worn on the bottom half and the top spine corner of the back cover has a small tear. The text paper overall is browned with age though not brittle. Previous owner's gift bookplate (Bishop of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan) is affixed to the first blank page. A somewhat tender and fragile book, probably why so few have survived.
