Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of a single item: a bound manuscript, "Prieres pour la Messe, Confession, et Communion" (Prayers for the Mass, Confession, and Communion). The 78-leaf manuscript, produced in Milan, is dedicated to "Madame N. N." All of the text is in French, with calligraphy and ornamentation in red, black, and gold ink by Gregoire (Gregorio) Pansechi.

This small octavo volume has a contemporary full maroon calf binding with triple gilt fillet borders enclosing a floral device. All edges are gilt, and the volume is enclosed in a contemporary mottled calf pull-off case.

Little provenance information is available, but a listing for this volume appears in the 1881 catalog of the collection of the Stinnecke Maryland Episcopal Library: A Catalogue of the Liturgies, Liturgical Works, Books of Private Devotion, Hymnals and Collections of Hymns, in the Stinnecke Maryland Episcopal Library. William Whittingham, Bishop of Maryland, donated the collection to the diocese in 1879. As of 2011, a remnant of this library is in the collection of the General Theological Seminary (NY).
