Description: "Book of Hours, Missal, use of Sarum" is a beautiful manuscript, with 670 pages containing many illuminations and intricate details. A wonderful manuscript to add to a scholars collection.

Note on the history from a current customer: "Sarum is the usage of the Roman Catholic Services, as they prevailed in England, until the Reformation. Cranmer, in creating the Book of Common Prayer, based his liturgical work on the Sarum usages."

Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 4 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.

Note: All of our facsimiles are made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for notification of shipment.
