Jan David 102+ Engravings RARE
Antique Veridicus Christianus 1601 1st Edition by Jan David 102+ Engravings RARE
1601. I can not express the honor that I have had to even own this incredibly historic book written by Jan David, "Veridicus Christianus" 1st edition written in 1601 with over 100 original engravings. This is a very scarce and rare book that is over 400 years old and this is the only copy for sale WORLD WIDE in very good condition for its old age. The book is all here with the exception of a few removed engravings and the front cover that has separated. The spine and binding is still in solid shape with original gilt lettering bright and shinning from a early restoration or rebind. This book holds very historical weight as it is one of the earliest Christian teaching books besides obviously the Bible. This book is written in three different languages; 1. Latin, 2. French, and 3. German and they all rhyme when read . What really makes this book stand out is its over 100 original renaissance engravings that are just stunning as they depict biblical teachings containing Jesus, demons, satan, angels, skeletons, etc... The engravings are from the Renaissance period and it's quite obvious as the symbolism is exactly seen in renaissance painters like Hieronymus Bosh and Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Their are many skeletons torturing humans while their being driven in a sleigh into beasts mouth entering the gates of hell and many other very disturbing and scary images. This book was used to teach biblical doctrine using the 100+ engravings in three different languages. The brutal images were used so the common man who was being taught would take to heart what he had been exposed too. … [Click Below for Full Description]
