About This Item

BIBLE, New Testament, in Latin. Novum Testamentum Illustratum insignium rerum simulachris. [Paris:] Franciscus Gryphius, 1541.

16o in 8s (113 x 75 mm). Gryphius' griffin device (Renouard 413) on title, 90 large woodcuts (including repeats) and 16 smaller (including repeats). (Title with portion of fore-margin renewed, lower corner of e8 renewed.) Late 19th-century red morocco gilt, edges gilt, frotté. Provenance: private collection, France.

Third (or second) Gryphius New Testament in 16:o. The first was the 1537 edition with woodcuts only for the Acts and the Apocalypse. This fully illustrated "pocket" Testament was reprinted in four successive years: 1539, 1540, 1541 and 1542. Titles for the books in the Testament are printed within cartouches, and seven of these are designed with figures-the four Evangelists, Peter, John the Apostle and Jude. See Brunet V:745 (1542 ed.); Mortimer French 70 (1541 edition).

Rare. Good condition, complete.
