Evanston, Illinois, Hamill & Barker, 1993. Limited Edition. Hardback. One of 166 unnumbered copies. Two parts: an original leaf from the 1462 bible and an essay (by Koenig). All in fine condition as issued. The commentary is an oversized hardback bound in quarter morocco. All presented in a large cloth drop-spine box. Publisher's announcement laid in along with original receipt. The present copy presents II Chronicles, chapter 17, commencing at the end of verse 15. The Fust and Schoeffer bible was the third printed bible after Gutenberg's 42-line bible (1455) and the 1458/59 Bamberg 36-line bible. The Fust and Schoeffer bible utilised St Jerome's latin translation from the 4th century, as did the two previous editions. An excellent early piece of printing history. A leaf from one of the earliest printed books. [6578, Hyraxia Books].
