= Hain 11382; IDL 3247; Sander, Le livre a figur. de Italien, 4743 (anno 1485). The first edition of this adaption of the Missale Romanum by Philippus de Rotingo was printed in 1482 by Octavianus Scotus. It was the first Missale Romanum, printed in Venice w. an illustration. Philippus de Rotingo was an 15th century frater whom edited numerous ecclestial works. This edition was printed by Nikolaus von Frankfurt, a German printer/ publisher who first started w. fellow printer/ publisher Franz R. von Heilbronn (Franciscus von Hailbronn) in Venice. Their cooperation lasted from 1473 to 1476. After that Nikolaus started his own printing press in Venice under the name Nicolai de Franckfordia. Until 1500 he cooperated w. several other presses i.a. Speyer. After 1500 every trace of him dissapears. This edition is an excellent example of the pinnacle years of Ventian printing presses. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXVI.
