Antiphonal with responses for the feasts of the Holy Shroud, St. Mary in Mount Carmel, the Holy Innocents, Joachim, Joseph and Our Lady of Mercy [this last possibly by a different hand]. 2. p. 38: [added in a careful cursive hand] Variation of the Office for the Holy Shroud outside of Easter time. Paper, pp. i-iv + 38, with contemporary pagination; 435 × 280 (385 × 220) mm. One gathering of 20 leaves + one leaf at the end. Eight lines of text and music, with pricking for both along inner and outer margins; music in square notation on red 4-line staves; height of the minims controlled by lead ruling. Written in a humanistic script, using a dark black acidic ink. The title, p. iii, in large square roman capitals, enclosed by a heavy black ink frame and red ruling; rubrics often in combined italic and humanistic display scripts in both red and black ink. Opening initial, p. 1, the height of the text and music, in red with red-touched pen and ink drawing of two flowers; other initials, same size, in plain red. Corrections to the text and music on strips of paper glued over the offending section (see pp. 6, 7, 8, 19). Bound in a single large sheet of limp parchment, the reverse of which is completely covered by long lines of a sixteenth century bâtarde script in French, probably a document. Written in France in 1702, perhaps for a Carmelite house. On pp. i and 38, the flourished signature of Urbain Roges, and on p. 38 the number “184.” Acquired in Paris between 1910-1926 by the artist Elmer E. Pattee, and given to the Huntington Library in August 1980 by his son-in-law, Robert G. Steele.
