Tuscany Book offers
A LEAF FROM A VERY RARE INCUNABULUM IN THE VERNACULAR, SHOWING PERSONIFIED ECCLESIA AS A MAIDEN OUT OF WHOM A TREE GREW WITH BANNERS
Lichtenberger, Johannes
Prognostikon deutsch
printed at Mainz (the city in which Gutenberg produced the first printed bible) by Jacob Meydenbach on July 29, 1492.
According to the monumental Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke, M18244, three are only 5 copies or fragments of this work worldwide in libraries.
The great majority of books printed before 1500 were printed in Latin or Greek, tha language of Scholars.
Bibliographical information: Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke 6688.
THE LITERAL TRANSLATION OF THE LATIN WORD "INCUNABULUM" IS 'INFANT'S CRADLE' AND ALLUDES TO THE FACT THAT PRINTING AT THAT TIME WAS IN ITS INFANCY. THE FACT THAT A BOOK WAS PRINTED BEFORE 1500 IS SIGNIFICANT IN THAT ITS VALUE IS MUCH GREATER THAN IF IT HAD BEEN PRINTED AFTER 1501.
-------------------------
CONDITION OF THE LEAF: As shown, in good condition on hand-made paper. There are minor traces of use and ageing, prior mounting, edge flaws, etc. I will mention flaws that cannot be seen on the photographs.
SIZE OF THE LEAF: ca. 10,75 "x 7,5"(272 mm x 190 mm).
PICTURED: Both sides of the leaf for sale.
