BREVIARIUM NOVI II (1495) FACSIMILE EDITION
This Second Novi Breviary Is a Large Codex of 500 Folios.
. The greater part of it was transcribed by Priest Martinac from the district of Lapac in Grobnic, one of the free medieval Vinodol communes. In his colophons he mentions 1493, 1494 and 1495 as the years in which the codex was written and finished. It was inscribed for the Pauline monastery and the Church of St. Mary on Osap, a little hill outside the walls of Novi Vinodol. The Pauline monks in the glagolitic areas celebrated the Old Slav services from glagolitic liturgical books. The script, particularly that of Priest Martinac is neat and legible liturgical script in square Croatian glagolitic as was use in the 14 and 15 centuries. In language the codex is the Croation redaction of Church Slav. The texts date from the 10th to the 15th centuries, and old and new linguistic elements are intermixed. The breviary retains entire the breviary of the Roman Curia distinguished by lessons of considerable length and detailed descriptions of the offices in the rubrics. 1. Proprium de tempore (fol. 1-267d) 2. Calendar (fol. 268-275) 3. Psalterium (fol. 276a-322c) 4. Officium defunctorum (fol. 322c-324c) 5. Commune Sanctorum (fol. 324c-355c) 6. Officium "de Beata" (fol. 356a-359c) 7. Proprium sanctorum (fol. 382a-500d) All the components of this codex: language, script, illuminations, and text are characterised by a mixture of older forms and newer innovations. They present a wide field of interest to scholars in linguistics, and philology, and to librarians, liturgists, musicologists and historians of art. In order to facilitate reading and orientations a glagolitic alphabet has been provided, a list of the most frequent abbreviations of contents.

ESTOW C
Pedro the Cruel of Castille 1350 - 1369
. ( The Medieval Mediterranean, 6 ) 1995, xxxvii,288pp, Hardback, mint condition in shrink wraps. This work deals with the reign of Pedro I of Castile (1350-1369), known as ?The Cruel,? one of the most notorious and misunderstood figures in the annals of peninsular history. This is the first book on the subject that analyzes Pedro's rule in light of social, political, diplomatic, and economic conditions in mid-14th century Castile. Using extant primary documentation from archival sources and the most recent findings of scholars from various fields, the book explores in detail the historical basis for Pedro's reputation and the extent to which this reputation unfairly rests on the testimony of Pero López de Ayala, the reign's principal chronicler. The book provides fresh insights into various aspects of Pedro's career, such as his political aims, relations with religious minorities, and fiscal policies. (ISBN: 9789004100947) .

First edition of one of the major works of German Romantic book illustration, the text printed throughout within a scrolled rule border, with decorative initials, marginal illustrations, and ornaments incorporated in the text as well as half-page and full-page illustrations.
