About this Item

In German. Lacks at least the title page. I have trouble reading the Fraktur, so this is an approximation as the lettering appears: "Borrede op Dath Nye Testament" is the first line on the first page of text. Pagination (vii)," CCCCXXV" leaves (850 pages), (xix) Register. Condition: The first 3 leaves have some paper fill-ins to the margins, with no real loss of main text, but some loss of text to the marginal notes. Many pages have light waterstains, mostly to the margins. The pages have been trimmed with loss of marginal lettering. Both endpapers are intact. The colophon on the last page reads: "BedrIIcset (?Bedrucket) tho / Magdeborch dorch Wolff / gang Kirchner M. D. LXXII." The pages are tightly bound with not much foxing. The binding is period, full brown, worn and rubbed calf. The covers are well attached but there is cracking to the exterior hinges. The spine ends and the hinges are chipped. There are about 36 full-page woodcut illustrations, of which 26 are in the last book, "De Apenbaringe S. Johannis" (The Apocalypse of St. John). First letters of each book are ornately illustrated. The book measures 4 inches by 6-1/8 inches (100mm by 153mm). The pages measure 3-13/16 inches by 6 inches (95mm by 150mm). There is a 1789 owner's name on the frontpaper, with the name of "McKeon" stamped on the inner front cover. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 13525
