About this Item

Small 8vo. ff. [16], 247. Lacking final blank leaf. 20 Woodcut illustrations depicting imagery from the "Apocalypse of John" accompany the text. Occasional woodcut decorative initials are also present. The title displays Ambroise Giraultís woodcut printerís device. A clipped area (1.7 x 6 cm) in the upper outer margin of the title page is carefully restored using matching period paper (difficult to notice at first glance). The title is also marked with the addition of red hand-ruled panel lines, well executed, (perhaps done at an early date) imitating a style sometimes seen in 17th century English Bibles and prayer books. Interior contains occasional spots of foxing; the title shows some scattered foxing; a couple of words of extremely faint marginalia are present in the outer margin of the third leaf and p. 107 (Oiii). Bound in full modern off-white vellum over boards after an early style. Apparently at least 5 or 6 printers/publishers shared in the production of this edition; therefore several variations of the imprint and the title page exist. The colophon reads: Gulielmus Thibout imprimebat Parisiis in via vulgo dicta boni putei, sub insigni quinque speculorum, anno domini, M.D.X.LV. Mense Septembris. Rupert de Deutz (c. 1075 Ė c.1129) was an influential Benedictine theologian who later in life became Abbot of Deutz Abby in Cologne. He wrote many works of Biblical exegesis. Rupertís commentary on the Apocalypse of John is noted by scholars (alongside the slightly later commentary by Joachim of Fiore) as one of the more original Apocalypse commentaries of the Middle Ages.
