Tournai: Desclee & Company. Hardcover. Fine. Original blue leather boards, with lettering in gilt. No date. The book has a copyright date of 1949 but a previous owner has placed a very small mark on the corner of the paste-down indicating 1985, and this seems about right. The book is very clean, bright and solid with 222 pages of religious music.
