Good initials. Mutilated. (Pächt and Alexander i. 776)
A composite binding, with earlier boards obscured by later covering:

17th century or 18th century, French or Italian: covering of plain parchment; ink title ‘Offitio’ on spine, 18th century?; no flyleaves; paste-downs of coarse grey paper, perhaps added still later (? Bodleian), though also wormed. 187–188 × c. 129 × c. 28–31 mm. (book closed).
