  • Request

'...Offitium beate Marie Virginis', apparently according to Venetian use, preceded by a Calendar (fol. 1), and followed by:

  1. The 'Septem Psalmi penitentiales' with Litany (fol. 104)
  2. 'Offitium Mortuorum' (fol. 132)
  3. 'Offitium sancte Crucis' (fol. 196)
  4. Prayers, partly (fol. 243) in Italian

The prominence of St. Mark in the Calendar, and 'Dedicatio ecclesie sancti Marci' on Oct. 8, show that the book is Venetian. A leaf has been lost after fol. 195.

'Dime' B. Francisco Giuseppe Franchi' (18th cent.).
