Way of the Cross, The Twelve Stations of the Cross: a rare 1544 book of the crucifixion with extensive handwritten notes. "Domini Redemptoris ac Salvatoris Nostri Jesu Christim." Contains 29 printed pages that detail the twelve stations of the cross in the crucifixion of Jesus.

Pagination begins at page 3 through page 32. Original binding, 4 bands, 5 compartments and while the original title page has been removed there are 4 manuscript pages including a simple but beautifully handwritten new title page with the word Via rubricated leading to the Oratio. There are 7 pages in more lovely calligraphy at the end titled "Officium S. Spiitus". Followed by a number of blank pages. Seems like an ideal book for a pilgrim to record his own journey to the Holy Land.

Handwritten is an ex libris noting Ferdinandi de Graes [?] as the owner. The full leather binding is well attached, no cracks, but some small worm holes in the endpaper. Old pencil note dates the book at 1544. All indications agree. Sensational early religious book with elegant manuscript calligraphy.; Latin; 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. BOOK
