1690 HOLY BIBLE German FOLIO Zurich LUTHER Antique BIBLIA Lutheran GESSNER Rare
Zurich: David Gessner, 1690. Biblia, Das ist: die gantze heiligen Schrift: Darin begriffen alle Bücher des Alten und Neuen Testaments : Auss den Grundsprachen treulich und wol verteutschet, aufs neue und mit Fleiss widerum übersehen : Samt dienstlichen Vorreden, begreifflichen Abtheilungen der Capitlen, abgesetzten Versen, nohtwendigen Concordanzen und einem nutzlichen Register. Getrukt zu Zürich : Bey David Gessner, 1690 (main title page); 1691 (Prophets, Apocrypha and NT title dates). --O0O-- A very rare and first edition of the pulpit Zurich- Luther Bible, four-parts -in-one, printed by David Gessner. This edition was the blueprint for many subsequent editions, and is very valuable with one other copy online priced at over 8,000$. The Bible is complete and retains all pages, although the downside is that the Bible lacks a binding and is disbound altogether. Pages are no longer bound and the Bible will need a complete new housing, the pages have some staining and wear at the margins, binding edge and some main edges; the main title with tears, wear and losses at the margins, as the same with the final leaf of Revelations at the end. All 4 title pages are present, however the copper engraved title page is not present. Massive folio, measures 16.5" tall, 11" wide, and 5.5" thick. A rare and important early German Bible with fantastic potential with a nice restoration. Good luck! [Attributes: First Edition]
