HistoryEdit

It was almost certainly printed by Gregorio di Gregorii. Miroslav Krek determined it was very probably printed in Venice, despite the colophonic attribution to Fano,[6] although this is disputed.[3][7] Other sources claim it was in fact printed in Fano, at an Arabic printing press established by Pope Julius II.[4][5]

ContentsEdit

The psalms used are those of the eleventh-century Melkite bishop, Abd Allah ibn al-Fadl.[8]
