One of 150 numbered copies. A fine copy.
From the colophon: "Handset in Solemnis and Palatino Italic with capitals taken from The Book of Kells printed on English handmade paper, painted and handbound at St. Teresa's Press Carmelite Monastery, Flemington, New Jersey."
This is the second book from the press and to many their finest production. The press was operated by the Carmelite Nuns of Flemington who added calligraphic illumination to decorate their books. This book used the Book of Kells as its model. There are many hand-colored initials throughout including a superb initial letter.
