About this Item

A mid-sixteenth century Luther bible containing 137 woodcuts Swiss artist Jost Amman, including four full page, all hand-colored. Folio, 33 by 23 cm. (11 lbs.) Collation: )(3-8, a3-6, b1-7, A2-3, A5-6, B1-3, B5-6, C-E6, F1-5, G-Z6, a-z6, aa-ff6, 4 blank leaves, A-Z6, a-n6, o2-6, p-z6, aa-qq6, A-Q6, R8, S-V6, X8. Lacking [*]1-2)(1-2, b8, A1, A4, B4, F6, o1 (NT title). To simplify this collation, preliminaries are unpaginated, then leaves numbered, 317, 370, 129 unpaginated leaves. The missing leaves are the general title, four prelim or prefatory leaves, three from Genesis: numbers 1, 4, 10, one from Exodus: 36, and the New Testament Title. Numerous closed tears, a few large, scattered through the bible, with only two woodcuts touched, but suffering no loss of imagery. These two are in Revelations, which was clearly thumbed through more frequently. Generally the woodcuts are unscathed, and the color remains vibrant. A few other leaves with marginal note losses, and a few instances of paper repair in the margins (but no facsimilization of margin text loss). One leaf, 193 (OT) with corner chunk loss. Dampstaining in bottom and inner margins of most pages. As with chipping and loss, the soiling is heaviest in the early leaves. The core is generally free of heavy blemishing. Calf, probably at least eighteenth century, heavily worn, dry and scuffed, and spine strip is gone. First and last half dozen leaves chipped and heavily worn along edges, with some loss of text. A few other leaves with marginal note losses, and a few instances of paper repair in the margins (but no facsimilization of margin text loss). Bookseller Inventory # 003264

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
