Quadrins historiques de la Bible
Lyon: Jean de Tournes, 1560. Boards. Good/This 1560 edition of Quadrins historiques is based on the version that had appeared two years earlier.

Octavo (16 cm); [246] pages (signatures A-P8, Q4, last leaf blank). Title with ornamental woodcut border; 231 half-page woodcut illustrations (57 x 80 mm) by Bernard Salomon, with one stanza of text accompanying each woodcut. Bound in modern (?) stiff vellum, impressed with blind stamp design on both boards. Title page dusty, with early ownership inscriptions; dampstains, especially in first leaves and sporadically thereafter. Repair to A3 not affecting text; I-4 and 5 dampstained and trimmed close. References: Brunet IV, 995, suppl. 341; Cartier 452.
