The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. With engravings on wood from designs of Fra Angelicop, Pietro Perugino, Francesco Francia, Lorenzo di Credi, Fra Bartolommeo, Titian, Raphael, Gaudenzio Ferrari, Daniel di Volterra, and others.
Longmans, Green, and Co, London. 1883 - Reissue of the scarce 1864 edition. Quarto. pp xvi, 540. Initial letters and all decorative portions designed or drawn on wood by Henry Shaw, and the figure illustrations drawn and engraved under his supervision. A lavish production, each page of text having elaborate decorative borders. Numerous full-page illustrations. Patterned endpapers gilt. All edges gilt. To say the binding is ornate would be to understate the case: the intricately floral design on the brown cloth is blocked in black, sky blue and gilt; bevelled edges. Binders' ticket on rear pastedown of Simpson & Renshaw.A hint of foxing here and there. Head and tail of spine slightly rubbed. Near fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
