"Editio Novissima, Multo auctior & emendatior." An elegant Graduale printed by Plomteux, who in addition to being a highly productive printer of religious texts, government publications, and reference works, served as librarian of the city of Liége between August 1766 and no later than September 1792. He entered the trade in 1766, working in association with the printer and bookseller Kints Everard, before succeeding him in 1767. He was also active as printer to one or more Parisian booksellers until the 1790s. The Graduale was a staple for him, both in large format and small, and this edition is the earliest located in OCLC/Worldcat under his imprint (one copy only, at the University of Maastricht).
