A handsomely-bound 19th-century Roman Missal, printed in Tours. It is bound with a copy of the Missal specific to the archdiocese of Tours, which was produced under the supervision of Charles Théodore Colet (1806-1883), who became Archbishop of Tours in 1874.

Three tipped-in pages from a 1936 Roman Missal, also printed in Tours, indicate that this copy was revised in the 1930s to reflect a number of revisions to the liturgical calendar that had occurred. The first, found between sigs. 37iii and iv, provides the revised liturgical text for the feast of the Immaculate Conception 8 December. The second page, placed between sigs. 40ii and iii, commemorates 31 January as the feast day of St John Bosco in place of St Peter Nolasco, whose feast day was moved to 28 January following Bosco's canonisation in 1934. Similarly a page between sigs. 43i and ii commemorates the feast day of St Bernadette of Loudes, who was canonised in 1933, as 16 April.

A tipped-in handwritten prayer between sigs. 25iv and 26i similarly indicates the practical use of this text as a devotional object.
