Inscriptions & markings

There is a lot of grey pencil scribble at the back of the book.


As the title page is missing there are no details as to the publisher of this missal. It is written in German. A missal is a liturgical book containing instructions and texts necessary for the celebration of Mass throughout the liturgical year. Versions differ across liturgical tradition, period, and purpose, with some missals intended to enable a priest to celebrate Mass publicly and others for private and lay use.
