Would you like Archdale King in your Home Library?

I suddently find myself having a spare copy of two of the recently (and beautifully) reprinted volumes of Archdale King, The Liturgies of the Religious Orders and The Liturgies of the Primatial Sees. I am making these available to anyone here who would like to purchase one or both of them.

Retail price (not including shipping from Europe) for the two volumes together would be about $250.00 USD but I would like to offer them for $180.00 for the set, plus shipping.

I cannot over-stress the importance of these volumes, which include detailed and relevant information about liturgies such as the Dominican, Carmelite, Premonstratensian, Carthusian, Ambrosian, Lyonese, Bragan, Mozarabic and other Western rites. The book includes an incredible bibliography and some very interesting photographs.

For my own part, I would place these two volumes as two of the very most important and most-referenced in my own liturgical library.

If you would be interested in pursuing this, please email me with regard to the matter:
