By the way, thanks for posting your last recommendation.

I bought the Fr. Lasance missal from the seller in the UK that you posted, and it has arrived, and it's beautiful. It's over 60 years old, but looks like it has never been used.

The paper is very nice. There are new Fr. Lasance reprints, but the paper they use is so bad that I just can't bring myself to use one. Partly it's aesthetics, but also the regular paper is just too thick, and it makes the book unwieldy.

You're welcome!

And, I agree.  The new reprints are cheap imitations.  There's a certain quality to the old Fr Lasance books that is barely replicated nowadays.
