Warren’s Sarum Missal in English

After some hesitation I bought a reprint edition of Warren’s two volume Sarum Missal in English. I have bought similar reproduction “print on demand” books before and had little disappointments... a page cut off halfway down here, a missing page there.

I paid a little more for this pair (but still less than £30 including postage) on the abebooks website and was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. The books are well bound and the type has been completely reset, but with a font and aesthetic identical to the original. I am very impressed and satisfied. The publishing line is called Alpha Editions and I have tracked down their website: http://www.vijbooks.com/Imprints/3/Alpha%20Editions

They do some rare books and are certainly better quality than most cheap reprint books I have come across or bought.
