(II) 51.5 x 36 cm., writing template of 42.5 x 26 cm. ( First part) [Ordinary chants of the mass.] 1 folio not numbered plus 28 folios numbered 68 to 95. (Second part) [proper chants of the mass.] Writing template of 40 x 24.5 cm.108 folios numbered CLCVIII to CCLXXVI (and beside, in arabic numerals, from 1 to 108) that continue the work of the first volume. Musical notation in black on a red stave. Decorated initial letters in black and red and one in colour. Two vols. leather bound, embossed boards with raised bands on spine, metallic clasp and lower square, documentary pastedowns (probably of the same chantbook, but without continuity on page numbering), re-backed. The making of certain folios, just as the difference in the use of inks, shows a later production. Old restorations and parchment sewed up in some folios, without affecting content.|
