EIN MISSALE SPECIALE VORLÄUFER DES PSALTERIUMS VON 1457.
Three volumes bound together. The second and third volumes are entitled Gutenbergs ersten Drucke and Zum Streit um das Missale speciale Constantiense, respectively. Three monographs of Hupp's analysis of the Missale Speciale, which he discovered in 1880. Each subsequent volume corrects the conjectures set forth in earlier issues and offers new interpretations. The third volume even includes extensive quotes from a number of other scholars. Text samples as well as entire pages of the Missale are reproduced in red, blue, and black-and-white. Though primarily known as a heraldist and ceramicist, this type of study fits naturally into Otto Hupp's concurrent interests as a typeface designer, engraver and artist. Memorial bookplate on front pastedown indicates that this copy came from the H.P. Kraus reference library and stock. Edges of cover rubbed.
