Item Description: Nuremberg Anton Koberger 30 July, 1477, 1477. Very Early Printing of the Bible and only the second Latin Bible printed by Koberger, 51 lines and headline, double column, canon marginalia in the Gospels. With manuscript headlines in red, a beautiful opening initial of 10 lines with elaborate flourishes that flow from the very top to very bottom of the page in red, blue and green, numerous 6 line initials in red and blue, some with much longer extensions or flourishes, a profusion of 3 line initials in red or blue, red paragraph marks and additional rubricating throughout primarily in red. Royal folio (375 x 265mm approx), in contemporary German blind-stamped pigskin over thick wood boards, (probably a Nuremberg binding), the boards center-paneled and decorated in blind with a central tool within multiple borders, remnants of brass catches on the fore-edge. Manuscript lettering to the spine with wide tall bands. 468 leaves, complete. An unusually fine copy, especially well preserved and very handsome indeed. An important copy with full contemporary binding intact, and in great likelihood coming directly from Koberger’s workshop. A RARE AND EXTREMELY HANDSOME COPY, ESPECIALLY WELL PRESERVED. THIS BOOK REPRESENTS ONLY THE SECOND TIME THAT KOBERGER PRINTED THE LATIN BIBLE. This printing was issued in the second year after the first printing of 1475. Anton Koberger was for a number of years the leading publisher/printer of his time. The total list of his printings for the forty years from 1473 to 1513, when he died, comprises no less than two-hundred and thirty-six separate works, including fifteen impressions of the Biblia Latina, eight of which presented material differences of notes and commentaries which entitled them to be considered as distinct editions. "In the actual number of separate works issued, Koberger was possibly equaled by one or more of his contemporaries, but in respect to literary importance and costliness, and in the beauty and excellence of the typography, the Koberger publications were not equaled by any books of the time excepting the issues of Aldus in Venice" (Putnam II, p. 150). This printing of Koberger’s Latin Bible was printed again in1478 and is largely based on the Fust and Schoeffer edition of 1462. The tractate of Menardus is included which is a summary of the books of the Bible with a guide on how to best study them. It was first printed not after 1474. A beautiful example of the magnificent productions during the first generation of printed Bibles, the state of preservation and the impressive German binding making it all the more so.

Item Description: Mainz Johann Gutenberg, 1455. A Leaf from the Gutenberg Bible-King II [BIBLE IN LATIN]. [GUTENBERG, Johann]. A Noble Fragment. Being a Leaf of the Gutenberg Bible, 1450-1455. With a Bibliographical Essay by A. Edward Newton. New York: Gabriel Wells, 1921. [Mainz: Johann Gutenberg, Johann Fust, and Peter Schoeffer, 1455]. Edition limited to 600 copies, designed by Bruce Rogers and printed by William Edwin Rudge. Folio, (actual leaf 15 7/16 x 11 in., 156 x 110 cm.). [6] pp. of text, with title-page and one initial letter printed in red and two in blue. Original watermarked (bulls-head) paper leaf from the Gutenberg Bible tipped-in. Black gothic letter, forty-two lines, double columns. Rubricated in red and blue, with headlines, chapter numbers in red and blue. Original full black blindstamped morocco by Stikeman & Co., front cover lettered in gilt. Gilt turn-ins, grey endpapers. The leaf in this copy is very clean except for minor foxing at edges, text still very black and crisp. A remarkably fresh and lovely example. This "greatest of all printed books," the Gutenberg Bible was the first book printed from movable type in the Western hemisphere (PMM). Only forty-eight copies of it are known, most of which are incomplete. This leaf was removed from the imperfect Mannheim-Zouch-Sabin copy after it was acquired by the New York bookseller Gabriel Wells. Wells broke up the copy in 1921 and offered the leaves separately, bound along with A. Edward Newton's eloquent essay. Every copy, leaf, or fragment of this Bible represents a rare tangible piece of cultural history, and an immense achievement in the art and craft of printing. "Its printers were competing in the market hitherto supplied by the producers of high-class manuscripts. The design of the book and the layout of the book were therefore based on the book-hand and manuscript design of the day, and a very high standard of press-work was required–and obtained–to enable the new mechanical product to compete successfully with its hand-produced rivals. Standards were set in quality of paper and blackness of ink, in design and professional skill, which the printers of later generations have found difficult to maintain" (PMM). The text of the leaf is the Vulgate Latin text of Saint Jerome, and the leaf presented here is Kings II (all Chapters 9 & 10 and part of Chapters 8 & 11). Kings II is important for both the Christian and the Jewish faith as it deals with Jehu's commission by the hand of Elijah to destroy the house of Ahab. Printing and the Mind of Man 1. Goff B-526B.

Item Description: Nürnberg, Anton Koberger, 1493. 4 volumes, 424, 338, 317 (of 318), 350 (of 352) folia. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum with 4 raised bands and clasps, Folio H. 34,5 x L. 23,5 x W. 6,5-9 cm. (The marigins of titlepage vol.1 are renewed, 3 pages of vol.1 in matching facsimile on contemporary paper, without the final blanco pages in vol. 3 and 4, waterstains at some places, some wormholes in both the wooden boards and the text blocks. With 44 woodcuts -some fullpage-, the capital letters in volume 2-4, and some in volume 1 are handcoloured with red and blue paint. With some old annotations in the margins. Incunable edition of the Latin Bible containing the Old and New Testament with the commentary of Nicolaus de Lyra. Besides De Lyra's Postillae the Additiones of the Spanish bishop Paul of Burgos c.1353-1435, followed by a reply on this Additiones the Defensarium or Responsiones from the Franciscan Matthias Döring c.1390-1469. Nicolaus de Lyra c.1270-1349, was a Franciscan teacher at the University of Paris. De Lyra was a very important biblical commentator who was known for his knowledge of Hebrew learning and the Latin (Church) Fathers. He gained his knowledge through studying the Hebrew language and other Jewish sources, among which the writings of Rabbi Solomon c.1040-1105. He studied with the Jewish rabbis of Évreux (North France), this city was one of the centres of Jewish learning during the Middle Ages. His knowledge was expressed in his massive Postillae, in which he commented extensively on the entire Bible according to mostly literal senses. This commentary was printed for the first time in 1471/1472 which makes it the first printed commentary on the entire Bible. The commentary of De Lyra is considered to be a mark in the field of exegesis, not only for its completeness (which was not common in medieval commentary tradition) but also because of its use of Hebrew exegetical scholarship and was used by generations of scholars, among which John Wycliffe and Martin Luther. John Wycliffe acknowledged his indebtedness to De Lyra in his translation of the Bible from around 1388. Luther consulted and used the Postillae regularly throughout his career, especially on his translation of Genesis. He saw the work as a good exegetical and practical resource which provided a better understanding of the historical sense of the text. In wrote in his Table Talk 'Lyra's Commentaries upon the Bible are worthy of all praise. I will order them diligently to read, for they are exceeding good, especially on the historical part of the Old Testament.' The publisher, Anton Koberger, was one of the largest publishers of the incunabula period, in this copy the Bible text was printed in the centre of the pages with the accompanying commentary of De Lyra around it, at the beginning of the paragraphs were blank spaces reserved for the capital letters, these were filled in by hand later.) 4 delen, 424, 338, 317 (van de 318), 350 (van de 352) folia. Origineel Perkament met ribben, stempels en sloten, Folio H. 34,5 x L. 23,5 x D. 6,5-9 cm.

Item Description: Franciscus Renner, de Heilbronn 1482-83, Venice, 1482. 337 x 229 mm. (13 1/4 x 9"). 1,211 leaves, complete, collating as the British Museum copy, but without the "Additiones" of Paulus de Sancta Maria included in some copies (see GW 4287). Double column, headlines, text surrounded by commentary, gothic type. Three volumes. Excellent contemporary blind-stamped calf over thick wooden boards, recently and expertly rebacked and with edges skillfully renewed, 25 ORIGINAL ELABORATELY DECORATED BRASS BOSSES and six original catch plates (five other less decorative bosses, all on the same cover, probably made in the 17th century), covers panelled with triple rules, the first volume with a broad outer frame and center saltire enclosing lozenge stamps with floral or spread eagle tools, the central triangular compartments with an all-over pattern of small, linked quatrefoils; the second volume similarly decorated, but with fewer stamps, the third volume with an all-over field of widely spaced horizontal, vertical, and diagonal rules; raised bands, lacking clasps and thongs, original endpapers. First few quires of each volume with hand painted red initials of three or four lines (several with trailing scrollwork), 15 LARGE MULTI-COLORED INITIALS (predominately in green, red, and yellow), SEVERAL WITH TRAILING DECORATION, TWO WITH DECORATIVE PANELS THE LENGTH OF THE PAGE (the first initial with a charming man's face, a few additional later, probably 17th century, initials done in brown ink), TWO ELABORATE PEN DRAWINGS IN THE SAME GREEN, RED, AND YELLOW, EACH ILLUSTRATING A ROUGH CROSS, PIERCED AND BLEEDING AT STIGMATA POINTS, the larger (on two-thirds of a page) with a heart pierced by a lance and a rod and with a skull and cathedral (no doubt representing Jerusalem) at the base, the second (on a quarter page) with a motto, the rubrication and illustration all in an untutored but sincere hand. First page of each volume with ownership inscription of Lateran Canons Regular associated with a church dedicated to St. Benignus, dated 1652, and with other manuscript additions made almost certainly at the same time, including (1) the name B. P. Bormon neatly written over a portion of an inscription (that is part of one of the elaborate pen drawings), and (2) a pair of drawings in brown ink of the ark of the covenant and its cover executed in the blank spaces left in Exodus for illustrations to accompany Nicholas' discussion of the Temple furnishings. Notes in at least two early hands on blanks and pastedowns, an index to the location of biblical books in a neat 15th century hand at the back of each volume, occasional marginal annotations. Goff B-612; BMC V, 197. One board with loss of about six square inches of leather, covers a little soiled and crackled, other abrasions and minor flaws, but THE BINDINGS ENTIRELY SOUND AND EXTREMELY APPEALING, particularly with their brass hardware. Some leaves in third volume slightly yellowed, first and last leaves and one other opening a little soiled, a few quires slightly affected by light dampstaining in margins, terminal leaf in two volumes with expert repair of lower corner, two leaves with a closed tear as long as three inches (into text but without loss), other defects, but all these imperfections quite minor: A FINE COPY, ESPECIALLY PLEASING INTERNALLY, THE TEXT REMARKABLY CLEAN, FRESH, AND BRIGHT. This item is a major achievement for a printer whose work was distinguished by the production of a number of important Bibles. Renner was responsible for at least two biblical firsts. In 1475, his folio edition was the first Latin Bible printed in Venice, and his 1480 Bible was the first quarto Venetian printing (it seems from Goff to be only the second Bible to be printed anywhere in that format). The present set is of considerable interest as a very well preserved incunabular Bible, and it is textually important as being only the second Bible with the "Postillae Literales" of Nicholas of Lyra, originally printed by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1471. But apart fro. Bookseller Inventory # CJW1502

Very exactingly rubricated throughout; signed at the end: "91 Jo fec". Several handwritten ownerships to fol. A1r, some contemporary, others as late as 1876: the name and printed bookplate of "C. R. Earley, Ridgway, Pa." (1823-98). Several manuscript marginalia. Some slight browning to the gutter of the first few leaves, staining to upper edge of fol. i.

Item Description: 1540. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Estienne´s first illustrated Bible, with all woodcuts finely coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. 1540-39-38. Paris. Robert Estienne. Folio (432 x 290 mm). 564 ff., as follows: [10], 268, 104, 90, 92. Contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden boards, skillfully rebacked preserving style, lightly rubbed. Unobtrusive worming, mostly marginal, at beginning and end, title with marginal repairs, else a brilliant copy, with all woodcuts delicately coloured by a contemporary hand. 26,000 $ First illustrated edition of the remarkable Estienne Bible, a monumental and beautiful printing, here in a spectacular copy with all the woodcuts, capital letters, and printer´s devices coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. Estienne´s illustrated Bible, besides being a very significant edition of the Vulgate, possibly one of the most beautiful Bibles printed in the 16th century, a fact that is singularly important to this copy, which presents the unique feature that all 20 woodcuts (some almost full page), 77 capital letters, and the four large printer´s devices are finely coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. The illustration of this edition was highly praised, and of considerable influence for subsequently printed Bibles, such as Jean de Tourne´s Biblia Sacra (Lyon, 1556), Rouille´s Figures de la Bible (Lyon, 1564), and Buon´s Sainte Bible (Paris, 1586). This is the third folio Bible printed by Estienne, which represents a further revision along the same lines as his first critical edition of the Vulgate in 1528. 'The third Estienne folio Bible, for which the text was revised from additional MS sources; a list given at the end of the preface enumerates at least 16 MSS and 3 printed editions. This edition contains the first printing of the Prayer of Manasses, in Greek and Latin. It is the text of this monumental edition which became the foundation of the official Roman vulgate . This is the only illustrated Bible issued by Robert Estienne, and the second of only five illustrated books which he produced' (Schreiber). This edition contains the editio princeps of the Prayer of Manasses, in Greek and Latin, the short book in the Old Testament Aprocrypha consisting of a penitential prayer put into the mouth of Manasseh, Kind of Judah. The series of twenty woodcuts were re-issued in 1546: “the purpose of the woodcuts is instruction above the Biblia Pauperum level Estienne acknowledges on the title-page the assistance of Francois Vatable, regius professor of Hebrew, in preparing the illustrations for the Tabernacle and the Temple of Solomon” (Mortimer). "The text of this edition represents a further revision on the same lines as that of 1528, but based on a larger number of MSS. A list given at the end of the preface enumerates at least 16 MSS" (Darlow & Moule 6117); Provenance: Dominican Convent of Regensburg, old bookplate "Conventus Ratisbonensis F.F. Ord.

Item Description: Valencia, en la oficina de Joseph y Thomas de Orga, 1790-1793, 1793. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Book Condition: Muy bien. Fol. (29,3 x 19,8 cm.) 12 vols. 10 vols. para el texto, encuadernados en plena piel de época formando árbol, lomos con nervios, hierros dorados y doble tejuelo, y 2 para los grabados, en tafilete rojo de época, lomos lisos con hierros dorados, greca dorada en planos. Magnífico ejemplar enriquecido con los dos volúmenes de 336 grabados que rara vez aparecen acompañando al texto. Se tiraron algo después con motivo de la edición que Cano haría en 1797. Palau: “Primera traducción castellana de la Biblia Vulgata. Esta primera edición es magnifica, y su corrección honra a las prensas valencianas.”. Darlow & Moule: “The first edition of a Spanish bible printed on Spanish soil”. “Según cuenta Scío, el rey Carlos III le encomendó en 1780 la traducción de la Biblia completa al castellano. Para acompañar la traducción y corrección de la obra a realizarse fue designado otro sacerdote escolapio, Benito Felíu de San Pedro. Para 1788, el rey Carlos IV asume el proyecto de su padre y decide que se imprima la obra en Valencia. Para entonces Scío se encontraba en Portugal, así que la dirección de la impresión y la corrección de las pruebas se realiza en Valencia bajo la dirección del padre Felíu de San Pedro. El padre Scío envía en ese tiempo los libros pertinentes de su biblioteca a Valencia y los pone a disposición del p. Felíu y los demás escolapios que estaban revisando las pruebas de la primera edición. De 1790 a 1793 se imprime la Biblia traducida por el padre Scío, con la colaboración cercana del p. Felíu. Y tan sólo un año después estaba ya agotada totalmente la primera edición. La obra lleva multitud de argumentos justificatorios para aparecer en castellano. Se trata de una edición a dos columnas, con el latín y el castellano en paralelo. La traducción es por momentos bastante dura por el deseo de Scío de ajustarse a la letra de la Vulgata. Constituye también un monumento de erudición por las notas a pie de página. La alusión al texto hebreo y griego para ciertos libros del Antiguo Testamento y al griego para otros y para los del Nuevo Testamento evidencian su vasto conocimiento bíblico. Las notas del padre Scío también traen posibles variantes de traducción al castellano. Además hay notas de carácter espiritual. La edición lleva unos bastante completos índices de nombres y lugares, así como una cronología, obviamente según la información de la época, y otros elementos auxiliares. Todo ello habla elocuentemente de la notable calidad científica de quienes participaron en la traducción del siglo XVIII.” Consta de 8 tomos para el Antiguo Testamento y 2 para el Nuevo, el último de los cuales lleva fecha de 1793. El resultado es una edición de lujo en diez volúmenes en folio, impreso entre los años 1790-1793 con una magnífica y elegante tipografía y composición a dos columnas para las dos lenguas en latín y castellano, y un abrumador acompañamiento de citas, glosas y comentarios. El vistoso frontispicio incluido en el primer tomo, dibujado por José Camarón y grabado por Capilla, simboliza lo que esta Biblia representa para el ideario cortesano de la monarquía de la época. La Iglesia, vestida de mujer coronada, entrega la Biblia al rey Carlos IV para que la difunda entre las distintas partes de su imperio, simbolizadas en las figuras que aparecen a la derecha de la imagen. Palau, 28948; Darlow & Moule, 8488. Bookseller Inventory # 1131

Item Description: Pivard, Lyon, 1500. Biblia latina] with an alphabetical table of Gabriel Brunus, guardian of a Franciscan Convent in Venice. Lyon: Jean Pivard, 29 Jan. 1500/01 432 leaves [17] Black letter text in double column. Contemporary binding with brass and knobs. Worn but still very pretty. Back cover absent. Large quarto. Goff B604; HC 3128.Why does it mention 1500 (clearly stated in the colophon) as well as 1501? in the Middle Ages, not all cities celebrated the New Year on January 1, and many cities used events in Christ's life and the dates of those to fix a suitable beginning to the year (Christ's resurrection, Christ's conception etc). So this creates confusion on modern cataloguing dates of incunabula- the colophon in our Bible is local to that city. In Lyon the new year started with Easter. So it was still 1500 while in other parts in Europe it may have been 1501, presuming that the year started with Easter. It is interesting to see that the events in the life of Christ, still determined the new year then. Bookseller Inventory # 000062

Strabo (c. 63 BC-21 AD.) was a Greek geographer whose only fully preserved work is this extraordinarily valuable geography in 17 books. A trip around the Eastern Mediterranean territories gave him firsthand knowledge of these areas, which he could use in his geographical description, which also contains information on literature, cultural history, medicine and natural history. Besides his own experiences Strabo based his work on earlier authors such as Eratosthenes, Poseidonios and others. The first books cover Western Europe, Britain, Gaul, Britanny, Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. Book seven describes the northeastern parts of Europe while books nine and ten deal with Greece. The descriptions of Asia begin in book eleven with the main emphasis on the Middle East, including Assyria, Babylonia, Mesopotamia and, Arabia, and also India. The last book covers Egypt and Africa. Matthias Floderus (1766-1822) was, after an academic career, made vicar of Rasbo and Kil in Uppsala archdiocese in 1797. He was also a great collector.

Item Description: Ex officinis Michaelis Isingrinii & Henrici Petri (Michael Insingrin), Basel, 1546. Hardcover. Book Condition: g- to near fine. Second edition. Folio. Bilingual title page + [19 leaves], 1601pp. of continuous pagination. Modern brown calf over brown marbled paper boards. Spine with gilt lettering, tooling and raised bands. Top edges gilt. This publication is a second edition of Sebastian Münster's Polyglot version of the Old Testament of the Bible (Tanakh). The first edition of the work, published 1534-35, was the first printed full Latin-Hebrew version of the Old Testament, with a new Latin translation (not taken from the original Vulgate). The Latin translation itself was written by Münster. Vol.1 covers Genesis through Kings, while vol.2 starts with book of Isaiah and ends with the Book of Ruth. Münster's text follows the complete contents of the Hebrew Bible, but changes the order by putting the Five Scrolls at the end. By this point the full Masoretic text and order of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) had already been first printed in an authoritative edition by Daniel Bomberg in 1524. The text is arranged in a two column format, with the Hebrew on the inside and Latin on the outside, with the addition of Münster's scholarly notes in Latin following each chapter. The text contains beautifully printed decorative and historiated woodblock initials in b/w. Some sections such as the books of the minor prophets are separated by detailed historiated headpieces. Each book of the bible starts with impressively printed 2'' type-face containing the first word of the text in Hebrew, and includes a large format Latin title underneath. The Prophets (Nevi'im) and Writings (Ketuvim) sections both have bilingual half-titles. The beginning of Vol.1 contains a preface and an index in both Hebrew and Latin by Münster. Vol.2 contains a preface in Latin by Münster, followed by the bilingual text of the "Seder Olam Zutta" a work of Hebrew chronology tracing from the time of Adam through the Babylonian exile. Period handwriting in ink, from a previous owner is on the final page of vol.1. Sporadic marginal notes in ink, from the period, throughout. Title pages laid down. Interior of vol.1 with water staining along the bottom edge and bottom right corner of the pages from approximately page 14 and steadily decreasing until about p.474. Vol.1 with worming throughout, steadily decreasing through to the end. Interior of vol. 2 also contains wormholes, but less so. Some pages of text affected. Sporadic minor smudges throughout. Aside from the worming and the staining (to vol.1) the text and pages are in remarkably good condition, with the printed text remaining vibrant and sharp. Small library stamps on the title pages of both volumes and at final page of vol.2. Book blocks tight. Bindings in near fine, interiors in good- to good+ condition overall. *Sebastian Münster (1488 - 1552) was a German cartographer, cosmographer, and Christian Hebraist scholar. Starting out in the Franciscan order, he converted to Lutheranism in 1524. In the same year he became professor of Hebrew at the University of Heidelberg, and starting from 1528 through the remainder of his life served as a professor at the University of Basel. In addition to his his work on Hebrew texts and biblical translations, Münster is best known as the author of "Cosmographia" in 1544, which was the first description of the world to be written in the German language, and was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century.

Item Description: Edicion Estereotipica por A. Chandler, New York, 1826. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good overall. Nueva edition. A scarce American Bible printed in Spanish, the personal copy of Ebenezer Nye (1799 - 1891), ship's captain from Sandwich Massachusetts, who was the master of the brig Cicero when it sailed on a trading voyage from New York to Maracaibo, Venezuela. The Mystic Seaport at Connecticut owns Captain Nye's journal from this voyage which "Mentions shipboard routine, and navigational information. Cicero was driven ashore and wrecked while approaching Maracaibo. The crew fought off Indians and salvaged part of the cargo. (Nye then spent 4 months in Bogata, returning to Maracaibo in November 1827.)" The front free end paper has Nye's signature, and below it, "Maracaibo, 22 July 1827", which suggests that this Bible may have been acquired in gratitude for surviving the shipwreck and subsequent attack. The August 11, 1891 obituary in the Sandwich Observer notes that "Capt. Nye was a proficient scholar in all geographical, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical studies, and many of the younger navigators of the bay cruisers are graduates of his winter evening school he taught for their benefit. His observation of the planets on the bright starry evenings were ever a delight to the school teachers and scholars of his village, and writing up his surveys of harbors and rivers along our coast for "Blunt's American Coast Pilot", rendered him a proficient pilot for nearly every harbor along the entire length of our coast and the Gulf of Mexico." Nye's son Ebenezer F. Nye was also a ship's captain, master of the Mt. Wollaston, which disappeared in the Arctic.Secondary title: "Nueva Edition, a costa de la socieded Americana de la Biblia, conforme a la segunda, que revista y corregida publico su mismo traductor el ano de 1797 en Madrid.
