'Theophylactus In Evangeliis'
Rome. Antonio Blado. 1542. First edition.
First page of text (dedication?) in Latin.
Theophylacts interpretation of the Four Gospels.
A scarce and important early printed book from the Rome printer, Antonio Blado. Printed in 1542 it is a good example but with some serious faults. Firstly it is without its binding, all that remains is a worn spine. The title page, featuring a woodcut of the printers device, has some dustmarks and other marks to it, see pics. Originally the book had 581 pp but the last 11 printed pages are missing, this ends on page 570.
The contents are firm and the majority of pages in clean and good condition with the exception of the last few pages which are marked and the last page is detached and damaged to the edges, see pic. One or two marks, light water marks etc to the occassional page but generally the contents are very good and sharp.
A used example of a very rare early book with fine printing.
Page size 28.5cm by 19.5cm. and weighing 1600g.
