Oddities: The Byzantine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom - in Latin and Greek

I saw this referenced on the Byzantine Catholic Forum and found it rather interesting as a kind of liturgical oddity. It is a text which presents the Byzantine liturgy in a parallel Latin-Greek translation. When I saw it, I was put to mind of another similar sort of liturgical oddity, the Liber Precum Publicarum of 1560 -- the Anglican Book of Common Prayer in Latin. At any rate, here is the book in question. The text of the liturgy of St. John Chrysostom begins on page 47 according to the original page numbering.
