Publisher: Impressa Parisius, [Per] Ioha[n]nem preuel
An extremely scarce early 16th century edition of Jean Prevel’s Biblia cum summariorum, a Latin Bible reprint of the earlier Paris edition in 1519, and closely aligning with the Lyon editions of J. Sacon and J. Mareschal, illustrated with hundreds of woodcut initials, and one small woodcut at the beginning of Genesis.
This bible is lacking all preliminary leaves, including the title and the six-panel woodcut of Creation, as well as the 52-leaf index at the end. The main text from Genesis to Apocalypse is complete.
There are 15th century manuscript fragments being used as pastedowns.
USTC records 5 existing copies of this edition in libraries.
This volume has been bound in blind embossed leather over wooden boards, with the designs still visible, though faint in places. The clasps are lacking.
One blind embossed volume in 16mo, 480 leaves, lacking prelims and index
This volume is in good shape, with some rubbing and wear to the binding, and the front hinges partially cracked, with the cords holding firm. There is staining sparsely scattered throughout, and some soiling in the gutters. There is some marginal damp staining that appears partway through Matthew.
