Fabulous antique French "Missel Des Croisades", missal or prayer book in pristine condition with gilt embossed black leather binding and in the original presentation box! To be honest, I really don't know much about these but the condition of this one is superb, as if never opened. Just in from France, this one came in its original box, has 500 pages with illustrations and "Lucien Cristan Lacroix Rouen" written inside. Licensed by Benjamin Joseph, Eveque de Limoges. Editor Maison Dalpayrat & Depelley. I don't see a date but didn't look too closely, likely 1890 to early 1900s.
Very good condition. The box shows it's age a bit, as you can see, but the text itself is pristine. See pictures for measurements.
