On offer is a superb ancient book VIA CRUCIS [Way of the Cross; Twelve Stations of the Cross]. "Domini Redemptoris ac Salvatoris Nostri Jesu Christim." Twenty-nine  printed pages detail the 12 stations of the Cross in the Cruxifiction of Jesus. Pagination begins at page 3 through page 32. Original binding, 4 bands, 5 compartments and while the original title page has been removed there are four  manuscript pages including a simple but beautifully handwritten new title page with the word Via rubricated leading to the Oratio. There are seven  pages in more lovely calligraphy at the end titled "Officium S. Spiitus". Followed by a number of blank pages. Seems like an ideal book for a pilgrim to record his own journey to the Holy Land. Handwritten is an 'ex libris' noting Ferdinandi de Graes [?] as the owner. The full leather binding is well attached, no cracks, but some small worm holes in the endpaper. Old pencil note dates the book at 1544. All indications agree. Sensational early religious book with elegant manuscript calligraphy.
