1664 Dutch Montanus on Early Holland AMSTERDAM Amstel Batavia East Indies VOYAGEArnoldus Montaus was a 17th-century Dutch historian who is best known today for his description of the Americas and Dutch voyages. However, prior to his work on early American account, he wrote a historical perspective on the earliest inhabitants in Amsterdam and the Amstel River region.

1486 Anton Koberger INCUNABULA Holy Bible Nuremberg Illustrated Lyra Commentary FAMOUS BIBLE / Entirely COMPLETE / EXQUISITE An exceedingly rare, COMPLETE collection of 4 volumes of the famous 15th-century Koberger Bible. This Greek and Latin Bible includes commentary of Nicolas de Lyra, a 13th-century doctor of theology at Paris, and, according to Darlow and Moule, "[Lyra] may be said to mark the first beginnings of a school of natural exegesis." Lyra was the first printed biblical commentator and commentary was used by Martin Luther and influenced some of his writings. In fact, Luther is quoted as saying "Without Lyra we would understand neither the Old or the New Testament. Lyra's influence was most important to the future of Bible commentary, as he took literal meanings of the text rather than inferring mystical or allegorical teachings. Anton Koberger, most-known for his monumental work "Nuremberg Chronicle," printed this illustrated Bible set. He established the first printing press in Nuremberg in 1 ... Read more
