1540. [44]; [920 ll.Two rare early 16th-century Cologne imprints in a slightly later binding by the Breslau binder Hb, dated 1540.

A good copy, with the blank lower half of the title-page cut off, some occasional browning and a few smudges. Binding lacking two of the corner pieces on the back board and the front spine is cracked, but still firmly attached, otherwise good with the tooling very we … [Click Below for Full Description]
