Accius Plautus ex fide, atque auctoritate complurium librorum manuscriptorum opera Dionys. Lambini Monstroliensis emendatus: ab eodémque commentariis explicatus.[Geneva], heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1595. 4to. With a woodcut printer's device on title-page and some woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary slightly overlapping vellum, spine reinforced with strips of medieval manuscript leaves.
Adams P-1512; USTC 451501; for Schutken see: De Bruin, De statenbijbel en zijn voorgangers, pp. 30-32. Plautus's twenty comedies, including the important commentaries by the French scholar Denis Lambin (1520-1572). The present volume is especially interesting because of the four manuscript fragments that have been used to reinforce the spine. They come from a Dutch translation of the New Testament by Johan Schutken (d. 1423) of the Windesheim monastery, dated ca. 1390. The fragments contain passages from the 20th chapter of the Gospel of Luke (a transcript is available on request). Schutken's translation was the most widely read Bible in Dutch in the Middle Ages, but surviving copies are rare. With manuscript library inscription on title-page. Faint and very minor marginal waterstaining, wormhole in first part of the book, only slightly affecting the text and a tiny stain on pp. 230 and 429, otherwise in very good condition. Binding partially detached from bookblock, allowing study of the manuscript fragments. Overall in good condition.
