Description

This is a leaf of incunabula from Die Vierundzwanzig Alten, oder golden Thron or The Twenty-four elders, or golden throne. Written in February of 1386 by Otto of Passau, a member of the Franciscan Order, at one time lector of theology at Basle. In it he introduces the twenty-four ancients of Revelation 4:4, and makes them utter sentences of wisdom by which men can obtain the golden throne in eternal life. These were taken from a variety of sources dedicating it to all the "friends of God", both clerical and lay, male and female, and begs for their prayers. It was printed in Augsburg by Anton Sorg on March 10, 1480. The small folio leaf measures 287 x 230 mm. in totality and contains 34-lines of gothic type (2) printed single column in German. Verso: contains the same lines, type & layout. (Hain 12128, Goff O-119, Proctor 1671, BMC II 347, ISTC io00119000) This leaf contains staining and four worm bore.
