The carving and condition of the collectible Dieppe hand carved cover on this elegant 1866 Missal Paroissien Romain is exceptional, beautifully carved shield with a crown of roses, the initials J R blackened in. Nestled in its case, this heirloom Catholic prayer book is a gem for your collection of religious artifacts.  What I especially love about this is that the original silk ribbon bookmark is included, a little shredded but hand painted with the M for the Virgin Mary and delicate Pink Roses.

The case closes well with a little push button, this has kept the missal beautiful for over 148 years. The edges of the pages are gilt, the ornate latch is missing, and there is a little aging to the spine. Inside, 576 pages with prayers, hymns and psalms, each page is surrounded by a brown foliate border. One lovely colored and gilt illustration graces the front, the tissue guard is intact, there are a few monotone illustrations. A small gem, a small loss on the spine as shown, measures 4~1/2" x 2~7/8" x 1~1/8".
