1638 Latin Bible Fine Binding Maitre Doreur French Master Binder Extraordinary! Possibly nearly the last Maitre Doreur binding Scarce!
1638. Conservation-Restoration Accomplished on this Maitre Doreur binding is Astonishing! Head and tail reconstructions were required and accomplished to perfection! Upper and Lower sections of back board were also addressed wonderfully. Please see all photos. Will supply more photos to serious interested buyers. This Bible is lacking the General and New Testament titles and is dated by the actual death of the Binder himself. This is one of his last bindings, as his death occured most likely in 1638. So although this is not among his best works accomplished in his prime, it certainly shows his fine ability even near the time of his passing. Text does indicate being complete otherwise, there are two sections pulled in the center of the text block but these are still holding. In the photos i have listed the "Before" next to the "After" of the same section restored. XVIIth century BIBLE CLEMENTINE AMAZING FULL MOROCCO BINDING of Master Binder Maitre Doreur BIBLE CLEMENTINE. HOLY BIBLE IN LATIN including the Apocrypha Marco Antonio Colonna, Ottaviano Vetri Barbiani c.1638, BIBLIA SACRA Vulgatae Editionis Sixti V. Pont. Max. Iussu recognita, et Clementis VIII auctoritate edita. Please see condition description above and all photos to closely examine the conservation-restoration of this fine Latin Bible being offered for sale. This is likely the Only Opportunity to purchase an original Maitre Doreur bound Bible. Good Luck.
