    The Finest Armenian Typographical Work From This Press

    [Armenian Church]. Lyturgia Armena. Rome: Typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1677. Later edition. Folio. [2, title leaf], 50 pages. Printed in Armenian types in red and black throughout. Woodcut vignette on title, verso of title, p. 3 and p. 10. Ornamental woodcut initials and borders or printer's ornaments throughout. Page 21 is a sectional title page for Ministerium Missae, same imprint, same year, with continuous pagination. Handsomely bound in full black crushed morocco by Wallis, with gilt double fillet borders and gilt spine titles. Double-ruled gilt inner dentelles.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
