        2 Vol. Gutenberg - BEST Facsimile Ever - Limited Edition - 1977 - Bible

      - Measures 13" x 18" each. 2 Large Folio volumes by Idion Verlag, 1977. Adorned with 100 miniatures in color. Accompanied by a commentary volume on how the volumes were made. Sumptuous brown calf binding stamped cold on wooden boards. Copper bossing at the corners. Leather straps and brass clasp. Binding executed by an Austrian artist, Ernst Ammering. 955 copies produced. These volumes reproducing the best book ever printed is considered the best facsimile ever made! Very good condition. Some foxing. ONE OF A SMALL NUMBER OF COPIES IN THE SPECIAL DELUXE BINDING (of a total of 955 copies printed, 895 of them for sale). VERY ORNATE BLINDSTAMPED CALF OVER THICK WOODEN BOARDS by Ernst Ammering, covers panelled with central diapered field, multiple blind rules forming several compartments on covers and spines containing nearly 500 individual stamps (mostly ornamental, but a charming stamp of a lute player on either side of the central panel on each cover), large brass corner and center bosses, double raised bands, spine panels with decoration in blind similar to the covers, leather thongs with brass clasps and catches. Initials, chapter numbers, and headlines printed in red and blue, APPROXIMATELY 100 ILLUMINATED INITIALS, some with marginal extension, the openings of each of the books of the Bible with large illuminated initials (MANY OF THESE CONTAINING MINIATURES) IN SEVERAL COLORS AND GOLD AND WITH ELABORATE FANCIFUL MARGINAL BORDERS incorporating flowers, foliage, animals, etc., the whole reproduced in collotype in as many as 10 colors and gold. In mint condition. This is certainly the most beautiful facsimile ever issued of the first substantial European book to be done with movable type. Printed on a one-time batch of luxurious Van Gelder rag paper, our magnificent replica edition was reproduced from the copy of the 42-line Bible in the possession of the Prussian State Library in Berlin, one of the most richly illuminated copies in existence. Our deluxe binding is a copy of the one on the Gutenberg Bible at the Hessian State Library in Fulda. (This facsimile edition was also offered in a simpler calf binding and in a binding of calf-backed wooden boards.) Offered here with the Bible itself is a large folio companion volume that contains commentary in German dealing with various aspects of the Gutenberg Bible, including a census of copies, an essay on the illumination of various examples, and so on. Of particular importance, the companion volume also contains the "Tabula Rubricarum." These are hand-written additions, of which there are only two known examples, in which Gutenberg gives precise directions for the embellishment of the text. In the deluxe binding of the facsimile offered here (in which form it cost more than $6,000 at the time of publication 34 years ago), these two very substantial volumes represent an arresting production.

First edition of an emblematic, heraldic and genealogical work devoted to mottos of "heros" by the Italian Jesuit Silverstro Pietrasanta (1590-1647), printed and published by Christoffel Plantin's grandson Balthasar Moretus.

The first presents mottos on emblems associated with the Virgin Mary, saints, Popes, Cardinals, noble men and women and scholars; the second mottos on antique coins and medals; the third mottos on rings; the fourth secret mottos, where Pietrosanto analyses their emblems. The other chapters continue with mottos and emblems: their names and meanings, their value and nature, their content, how they are constructed or drawn and their symbolism. The engraved title-page was drawn for the book by Peter Paul Rubens and engraved by Cornelis I Galle.With owner's stamps and bookplates. With occasional minor browning or spots, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding rebacked as noted, and with a few scratches and scuff marks, but otherwise good.
