Ecclesiastical vestments and Altar linen

Mulhouse (France): Printed by the Societe Anonyme Dollfus-Mieg & Cie, for Editions Th. de Dillmont, S.a r.l., no date, circa 1930. Pamphlet. 28p. plus addenda leaves, coated alkaline paperstock bearing text, captions, and numerous plates and figures, all of which in full color (whether or not colorized), softbound in oblong 7.5x11 inch stapled wraps and paste-fastened glossy wraps titled unobtrusively gilt. Edgeworn with a small chip and some dust-soil, smears and crimping, good within: sound, clean and unmarked. Settle your mind re the differences of "cope", "chasuble", "dalmatic", "alb", and all those other items. The various colors are quite impressive. A good (good-only) copy. D.M.C Library.

The running text allows that rural and other low-income areas cannot afford store-bought draperies, so here are examples and color-codings for the dressing-up of fellows who get the vino, to be pieced and sewn and embroidered by feminine locals who must subsist on the wafers.
