The Anaphora of St. Basil, St. Gregory, and St. Cyril, Preceded by the Prayers of the Evening and Morning Incense, and Other Prayers, accompanied by an Arabic translation
Rome 1736 - Translation printed in Coptic and Arabic in parallel columns. A full page woodcut of Christ on the cross, a 4" x 5" woodcut of Christ and the Apostles. Printed in red and black, with numerous decorative head- and tail-pieces. Born into an Orthodox Coptic family in Egypt, Tuki was a convert to Catholicism, and received a doctoral degree in theology in Rome in 1735. Despite his contentious personality, he was appointed Bishop of Arsinoe by Pope Clement XIII in 1761. The non-original binding, inexpertly executed, put stress on the joints, resulting in detached upper board and first signature, and some buckling of pages. Laid paper with chain marks and watermark is fresh. The rebinding was in marbled paper-covered boards with leather backstrip, the spine panel of which is absent. Approx 9" x 7." Catalogue of Arabic Printed Books in the British Museum: A-Z. 1894-1901 (1219, k. 12) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
