Albertus for Joh. Koberger, Nuremberg, 1517]. Folio.

Contemporary calf over wooden boards, blind-tooled side, two brass clasps. Leaves from a 14th-century liturgical manuscript pasted on the inner sides of the boards. From the "Koberger Werkstatt".
1446. [6], 204, [14] pp.The two major texts by Marcus Vigerius de Savona (or Emmanuele Vigerio; 1446-1516) in their second editions. The Decachordum Christianum was first published by Girolamo Soncino in Fano in 1507. It is a devotional work, dealing with the Holy Family and Christ's incarnation, from the Annunciation to the Ascension. This second edition was printed in Hagenau in the Alsace, for the most famous publisher of Nuremberg, Anton Koberger. Each of the ten sections is preceded by a splendid woodcut by the "Master I S with the shovel", an artist of the school of Hans Schäufelein (ca. 1480-ca.1539) in Nuremberg and Nördlingen, who was himself a pupil of Dürer. The Master probably also worked in Alsace and his work is often confused with Schäufelein's. His style, however, is somewhat different and shows also the influence of Dürer and Baldung.With (partly erased) contemporary owner's entries on the first fly-leaf and title and many contemporary scholarly annotations in text, spine skilfully restored, some spotting on a few leaves. Very good copy in a magnificent contemporary blind-tooled binding, probably from Nuremberg.l Oldenbourg (Schäufelein) I, 129; Proctor, German Books 1501-1520 11684; VD 16, V1183; cf. Thieme & Becker XXIX, p. 558.
