One of 250 copies on paper (there were also 20 on vellum), printed from a fifteenth-century manuscript at Lambeth Palace Library.

The anonymous poem, beginning ‘In a tabernacle of a tour’, is framed as a dialogue between Christ and the Soul, with each verse punctuated by the refrain ‘Quia amore langueo’. The Caradoc Press, operated by Harry George Webb and his wife, Hesba Dora Webb, was based in Chiswick and operated from 1899–1909.
