mine arrived today via "luftpost".
very nice, very well done.
Guess it's still a few more days to NY then.
Got it today! Nicely packaged via "Luftpost".
I set up volume one and used it to pray Vespers ( I usually use the Monastic Breviary, but I hope St. Benedict will forgive me as the propers are the same).
First of all, this is the first new Breviary I've ever owned, except for a set of LOTH bought years ago. The cover is remarkably soft and flexible, the print is well sized and easy to read.
I used up all six of the ribbons quickly, but it was enough. With the insert cards for the Magnificat and final antiphons, I didn't need to use the ordinary (not present in the Monastic Breviary anyway), so I used 4 ribbons even including commemorations of the St. Nicholas and St. Ambrose. I'm not sure if I was supposed to do that, but I used my accustomed rubrics rather than try to learn 1962 ones.
All in all it seems a very successful effort. I think I'll use it again tomorrow and let you know what I find out.
