SPRUCHE SALOMONIS DES WEISESTEN KONIGS: In welchen/ als in einem Taglichen Handbuch Gelehret wird/ wie ein jeglicher gleubiger Christ ein gut Leben fuhren soll/ fur Gott und der Welt. In hundert un neun und sechzig Predigten/ zu Jehna in der Stadkirchen erkleret.
Jehna Tobiam Steinman 1621 - Folio, (310x190mm), [16],1,221,[23]p.the numbered text leaves foliated only on the recto 1-610; the title pages printed in red and black with the words 'Salomonis des Weieesten Konigs' printed from a woodcut block and incorporating an ornately decorated capital, the word 'Spruche' printed in black ffrom type which has been clearly printed before the red as the letters appear to have been dropped into a suitable hole cut in the woodblock. Printed largely in black letter with the index in Roman type and some very occasional Greek type; lightly browned throughout. Contemporary quarter vellum, the backstrip very worn and with some damage and loss, the sides formed from vellum leaves from an early printed book, yap edges though the vellum ties have been lost from the fore-edge. The first edition of a voluminous collection of sermons inspired by Solomon's book of proverbs by Jacob Stocker (1572-1649) a protestant minister at Jen and Eisleben, we can locate only two other copies of this book, both in German libraries. We have been unable to attribute the early printed leaves that are used on the front and rear covers but they are handsome enough in their own right; the from - printed in red and black - employing an attractive black letter type, mainly of a large size; that on the rear cover is probably from the same source though printed in two columns and in type of a small size. HEAVY BOOK, overseas customers please note that this title weighs more than the 1 kg packed average on which postage charges are based, email us through the 'Ask the bookseller a question' option for delivery options and additional charges. [Attributes: First Edition]
