The Oxford Centenary Supplementary Missal - In Commemoration of 39 Beati of the Anglican Communion

Updated on January 14, 2013

A rare association copy of a rare book

A fine ex-library (but what a library!) copy of the Oxford Centenary [Supplementary] Missal, author signed (Clement Humilis, the nom-de-plume of James Tait Plowden-Wardlaw, Vicar of St. Clement's, Cambridge) and from the personal library of Alfred Hope Patten, refounder of the Anglican Shrine at Walsingham, ex-Walsingham College Library! Hope Patten, of course, is justifiably famous in Anglo-Catholic circles for refounding what continues this day to be the great centre for Anglican pilgrimage and Marian devotion, the Anglican shrine to Our Lady of Walsingham. The book itself is in a nice red cloth cover with some water and other marks, faded spine, usual library and owner markings, top edge gilt, mark to text block, four ribbons slightly faded, foxing to first and last few pages, sound overall. Rare in itself, the presence of the author's signature and Hope Patten bookplate add up to an incredibly rare association copy.

The Ordinary and Canon of the Mass commences (after "the customary preparation") with the Collect for Purity, Introit, ninefold kyrie (English or Greek), Gloria, Collects, Epistle, Gradual, etc., Creed, Offertory, Secret and Preface to the Canon in traditional Western form. The Sanctus and Benedictus then open the Canon, which commences with a prayer in recognisable kinship with the BCP Prayer for the Church except for the presence of a passage in praise of the saints, and prays for the sanctification of the gifts before entering into the Words of Institution, concluding with Cranmer's amended Supplices te Rogamus. The Lord's Prayer then follows, succeeded by the Fraction, Agnus Dei, Priest's Communion, Exhortation, Confession of the People, Absolution, Comfortable Words, Prayer of Humble Access, Communion of the People, Ablutions, postcommunions (entitled The Communion), "Almighty and everliving God" Blessing and Last Gospel.

Apart from its interesting use of the 1549 Canon of the Mass, the chief feature of this book, of course, is to give proper texts for masses for thirty-nine servants of God of the Anglican Communion, some going back to the Caroline and Non-Juring period and some deceased within recent memory at the date of publishing (1933, the hundredth anniversary of the Oxford Movement, hence the spine title of the Oxford Centenary [Supplementary] Missal - the Missal it is supplementary to being presumably the English Missal, also published by Knott.)
