Author: Lucantonio Giunta
Publisher: Venezia, per Lucantonio I Giunta
An uncommon early 16th century edition of the Giunta Bible, being the fifth edition, and the first in Latin.
There are over 100 woodcuts, including three full-page woodcuts, two of which are the six-panel woodcut of Creation, and The Nativity. Many of the woodcuts come from the Malermi Bible of 1490, and the woodcuts from the Old Testament serve as the original source for Holbein’s Icones Veteris Testamenti. These woodcuts would serve as a model for subsequent early bibles issued in France.
The numeration of leaves 95, 96, and 395 are repeated in error. Leaf 412 is misnumbered as 414, 439 as 443, 496 as 469, and 512 as 513.
One of the unnumbered leaves at the end is lacking.
USTC records 47 existing copies of this edition in libraries.
One volume in quarto, (24)+518+(31) leaves
This volume is in poor shape, with some rubbing and staining to the vellum binding, which is holding onto the text block by a single cord. There is worming to the margins, heaviest up to leaf 17, and again from leaves 418 to the end. A line of text from leaves 427 to 455 is mostly obscured with worming. Some of the printed marginalia is obscured, and several letters in the main text are obscured as well. There is minor foxing and staining throughout.
