Shoults Spb 1636 M
Tortosa: Francisco Martorell
As expected from an ecclesiast, Shoults collected a number of devotional works such as breviaries and missals, some dating back to the 17th and 18th century. This Spanish printing of Davide Perseguitato by Virgilio Malvezzi (1595–1654), an Italian historian and essayist, not only contains the text of David Persecuted, but also a portion of a 15th century Italian Antiphonal. Here the rubricated vellum fragment has been used for the entire binding. The texts on the front and back covers are chants for Palm Sunday. There are 25 other examples of this fragment recycling in the Shoults Collection.
