Missae in agenda defunctorum - 1796

Beautiful Crucifixion of Christ engraved in burin, of particular interest because it is taken, with some variations, from a painting by Guido Reni of similar subject. Christ; Magdalene; Blessed Virgin.
Two-tone pages in red and black with the words and notes of the songs for the dead.
Interesting and luxurious total black binding with skulls printed in gold in the centre of the boards, decidedly in the style of D’Annunzio.

The Canon of the Mass (Canon Missæ), also known as the Canon of the Roman Mass, is the oldest anaphora used in the Roman Rite. This book features the canon for the mass of the dead and the scores of the relative psalms.
Text on two columns in red and black within double black concentric frame; square musical notation printed in black, red four-line staves.
Before 1962 there were divergent opinions on the point at which the Canon of the Mass ended. Some believed that it ended where indicated in the Roman Missal in the editions from 1570, others at the conclusion of "Libera nos a malo".

In folio. Pp. [4], 32. Chalcographic title page in red and black, with a beautiful central vignette engraved in copper; pretty chalcographic letter caps and a beautiful plate on page 6.
Reintegrated marginal defects that do not affect the text or the images. Later full black leather binding with dry etched concentric frames and an interesting golden skull in the middle of the boards. Signs of use.
