An extraordinarily scarce first edition of Angelus of St. Francis’s Sacrarium privilegiorum, being a guide to the indulgences granted to members of the Franciscan Order. Of Angelus himself, he was an English Franciscan friar and writer active in the 17th century, displaying industry in both original composition and the compilation of devotional manuals, this being an example of the latter.
There is an engraved title page, with a full-page portrait of the author, and two full page engravings.
Worldcat records only four existing copies in libraries.
One volume bound in vellum, (XVI)+272+(XXVI)+31 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with very light staining on the vellum covers. There is a small tear noted on the end of the front cover, with little to no foxing or staining throughout.
