Biblia Sacra
[Mainz: Johann Gutenberg, ca. 1455, i.e. Paterson and New York: Pageant Books, 1961]. Folio, [1282] pp. with 100 illuminated miniatures, chapter initials in red and blue, rubricated in red. Original red cloth lettered in gilt, boxed. A fine set as published. Limited to 1000 sets, reissuing the facsimile published by the Insel-Verlag in 1913 which was taken from one of the most beautiful copies known, especially treasured for the wealth of miniatures illuminated in gold and decorated with flora and fauna. This was the first facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible to be printed in America. Some copies were issued in a leather binding and the balance in cloth. Despite the large limitation, copies are uncommon in fine condition as issued.
