More archival adventures

This week I did some more archive-diving at the Chancery.  They have a small rare book collection which includes Bishop Blanchet's copy of the Pontificale Romanum....

 
...and an amazing devotional book from 1628.
 
 
I also got a tour of the Seattle University Archives, where they have heaps of antique gradebooks as well as a vintage sweater from the days when it was Seattle College....
 
...and still more interesting old prayer books.

What I love the most about old books, especially bibles and prayer books, are the things I find inside them!, Prayer cards, etc. very interesting

That "SC" looks like the design on a few of Santa Clara U's t-shirts, sweatshirts and the like.
