Description

This is a leaf of incunabula from a Biblica Latina Cum Postillis, Book of Numbers Chapter 36. Anton Koberger printed it on September 6, 1497 at Nuremberg. The folio size heavy paper leaf measures 335 x 230 mm. in totality and contains 31-lines of gothic type (14:130G, 15:91G, 19:71G, 21:74G) surrounded by 71 lines of commentary by the noted theologian Nicholas de Lyra (b. 1270 d.1340) printed double column in Latin. There is a woodcut in the lower left corner of the Inheritance of Zelophehad's Daughters.This particular Bible comes from the first of a four-volume set (Genesis through Chronicles). It contained the usual introduction from St. Jerome but the most interesting aspect was pages 169 - 184 were omitted because they were not present at the time of binding. This skipped from Leviticus Chapter 23 to Numbers chapter 22. The Verso: contains 13-lines of the same type and layout. (Hain 3171, Proctor 2115, Goff B-619, Oates 1046/7 GW 4294) This leaf contains minor staining on the bottom edge.
