Missel Missale Romanum Post Incunable Profusely Illustrated 1508 Music Liturgy:
A MAGNIFICENT MISSEL, profusely illustrated,
Missale sm ri sancte romane ecclesie ad longum sine require: mendis erutum
Venundantur Lugduni. ab Stephano gueynard prope sanctum Antonium. .
18 cm (7 inch).
Etienne GUEYNARD published a varierty of liturgical books. He was the first lyonnais publisher to ornaments his publications with frontespiece and borders. He also provided typographical elements, and since published Missals containing music it is likely that the choral font was also his.
To my knowledge, there has never been a Gueynard missel for sale. And instutional copies are rare also.
I have not been able to date this Missel. The date on the spine does not define anything,
Sadly the work is incomplete, would it be complete, it would be very, very valuable.
Here is what we have
14 unnumbered leaves with the Calender (complete). Out of 16?
1-263 leaves, not pages. (I-CCLXII), 24 leaves missing! Tentatively, I might have made a mistake, but I painstakingly collated
STILL a profusely illustrated work of great typological interest.
With four full page woodcuts
1. The instruments of the Passion
2. Presentation to the Temple
3. Judgement day
4. The visitation.
With 20 leaves of Music and the canon of mass.
Numerous woodcuts in text.
