About this Item: New York. George Braziller, Publisher. 1967., 1967. Folio. 37cm, (printed in West Germany). Limited to 1000 number copies, this being #937., this facsimile edition comprises the two parts of the Lorsch Gospels from the Biblioteca Documentara Batthyaneum in Alba Julia, Rumania, and the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana in Rome. It was published on the initiative of Wolfgang Branunfels, who also wrote the introductory text accompanying the volume. The six colour engravings were made by Brend'amour, Simhart & Co. Munich, from photographs by Robert Braunmuller. The color printing was by Dr. C. Wolf & Sohn, Munich, the reproduction and two colour offset printing of the monochrome plates by the Graphische Anstalt Ernst Wartelsteiner, Munich-Garching. The book was bound by hand by Willy Pingel, Buchbinderei, Heidelberg. The Zanders special matt art paper was provided by Hartmann and Mittler, Munich. Bound in quarter vellum and red linen boards, a fine copy in dust worn grey cloth slipcase (cds1). - Founded in 764 near Worms, the abbey of Lorsch was among the wealthiest of Carolingian Imperial monasteries. The Abbey's oldest library catalogue, compiled about 830 - contains the first reference to the Gospels which are now believed to have been written and illuminated about 810. The text is written throughout in two columns and set in richly decorated coloured borders. Each two page spread has a distinct design, and many of the decorative motifs have been adapted from other crafts: goldsmiths, silk-weaving and ivory-carving. Borders and scripts together combine to produce a series of decorative compositions which unfold in new color harmonies from page to page. Book. Seller Inventory # 5438

About this Item: George Braziller, Inc., [New York], facsimile edition,1967, 1967. Limited edition of 1000 numbered copies. Vellum-backed red cloth, with separate accompanying introductory text bound in plain wrappers, with slipcase, folio, 38 cm, facsimile: 416 pp including 54 pp in in four colors and silver and gold; commentary; 23 pp, ills. From a contemporary review by Lawrence S. Thompson: "The whole manuscript, separated since the Counter-Reformation in England, the Vatican, and Karlsburg (Gyulafehérvâr, Alba Julia; presently Roumania), has now been brought together in a masterful re-production. Originally produced at Aachen about 810,probably on the commission of Charles the Great, the earliest record of the manuscript is in the surviving catalogue of the Abbey of Lorsch (near Worms; founded 764). The book probably came to Lorsch during the administration of the Abbot Adelung, a favorite of Charles. The ivory panels on the covers have a curious history, and they provide some evidence on the separation of the original volume. Mr. Braunfels provides all available facts on this point.The Latin text pages of the four Gospels are in gold uncials, and in Matthew and Mark the beginning of each chapter is emphasized by a line of red uncials. The Capitulare Evangelorum, alone, is in Carolingian minuscule, meticulously written in the interest of legibility for any reader. The two-column text is richly decorated by colored borders, with themes drawn from the work of goldsmiths. weavers, and ivory- carvers. Motifs from Mediterranean antiquity are predominant. Especially noteworthy are the elaborately decorated leaves of the Canon Tables, titles and initials, miniature portraits of the Evangelists, and the impressive portrait of Christ, Maiestas Domini (p. 36). There are six large miniatures, consisting of portraits of the four Evangelists, the Christus, and the picture of the ancestors of Christ at the beginning of Matthew (p. 72). The Evangelists resemble princes rather than churchman, possibly a result of local conditions in Aachen. There are identifiable influences on the miniatures, from Byzantine through late Christian models. Mr. Braunfels' descriptive essay is a memorable contribution to the critical literature of mediaeval book painting and palaeography and could stand as an independent contribution. The facsímile is impeccable. and it deserves a home in the special collections of all research libraries." Copy No. 784. Fine in slipcase. Seller Inventory # ABE-43004

About this Item: Faksimile Verlag, Lucerne, 2000. 387 x 279 mm. (15 1/4 x 11"). commentary volume: 290 x 210 mm (11 1/2 x 8 1/4"); prospectus(?)folio volume: 430 x 300 mm. (17 x 12"). 111, [1], 124 leaves (in the facsimile). Three volumes (including a commentary volume in German and a prospectus). No. 208 OF 333 COPIES with the special replica binding. (There were also 60 copies without the reproduction binding.). IN AN ESPECIALLY FINE REPLICA OF THE ORIGINAL CARVED IVORY BINDING, upper cover with a headpiece showing two angels holding a medallion of Christ, tailpiece depicting the Nativity and Annunciation to the Shepherds, large triptych with the Virgin and Child at center flanked by a bearded saint on each side; lower cover with similar headpiece, but with the tailpiece depicting the visit of the Magi and central triptych with Christ triumphant, an angel on either side; both covers encased within metal frames; raised bands, black leather spine. In a padded black leather folding box with color medallion on upper cover. Text in gold, framed by decorative color columns bordered in silver and gold, three full pages of decorated text, and four full-page miniatures. In mint condition. This facsimile is surely among the most magnificent examples of its type, being deemed sufficiently grand to be used by Pope Benedict XVI as a present to Queen Elizabeth during his visit to Britain in 2010. A monumental work of Carolingian art, known both as the Lorsch Gospels and the Codex Aureus, the original manuscript is one of the rare books of the early Middle Ages entirely written in gold ink. Described as an "evangelium pictum cum auro scriptum habens tabulas eburneas" ("illustrated Gospel Book, written in gold with ivory covers"), it was produced ca. 810 in the scriptorium of Charlemagne at Aachen. It first appeared in a book record of Lorsch Abbey dating back to around 860. Between the text and the decoration, the book could hardly be more golden or more luminous. Reflecting the height of creativity at the time, the covers consist of two ivory plates masterfully carved at the court of Charlemagne around 810. The binding was removed when the manuscript was stolen from the Bibliotheca Palatina in Heidelberg during the Thirty Years War. The front cover is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the rear cover at the Vatican Library, which also holds the manuscript.
