This copy is the Prologus of Eisia to Machabies in its original alum-tawed pigskin binding with roses and Fleur de Lyis as well as Stags. The boards are thick, unbevelled wood and the leather is ornately tooled in blind. The binding has sustained only light damage but is missing the corner and central bosses but metal clasps are present. The text is rubricated throughout with large and impressive wood cuts and chapter heads. The paper is a classic signature as well as the binding of the Koberger print shop. The paper has many deckle edges throughout, insuring that this is quite a large copy and well preserved. Goff B-614; IG,: 475; Hain-Copinger,; 3167.; etc. extensively referenced. This set would have been one of three volumes available as a complete set. Philadelphia Divinity School, and the Library of Joseph M. Lybrand, also noted F. Gallus WineKellmann, Prof. Banth. on first page, bottom. Tear at pg 293, near interior spine with tear running into some words about 1-2 inches. 13 woodcut engravings throughout some with full page, including one of a town.
