VERY RARE 4 Volume, BREVIARIUM MONASTICUM, Complete set
Belgium: 1939. Brevarium Monasticum Pauli V Jussu Editum, Pro Omnibus Sub Regula S. Patris Benedict Militantibus, a 4-volume set in black Morocco leather, published by H. Dessain in 1939, and is the "Editio Tertia." Volumes by the season in Latin, red and black text throughout it. Leather shows light overall wear as well as edge wear. Size of books is just under 6" x 4". The name "Father Govorchin" is impressed on the Vestiva volume (Summer), and it didn't take much research to discover Father Vincent Govorchin graduated from St. John"s Seminary in 1955 and after his ordination served in various parishes in Utah. Later in life his mission became comforting the sick in hospitals, and specifically working with Veterans. I've left all his holy pictures and other ephemera inside the books. Full sets of Saint Benedict's Monastic Breviary can be very rare and scarce. Overall this one is in good condition, and all the ribbons are all present and in excellent shape.
