Author: Thomas Hibernicus.
Publisher: Antverpiae, apud J. Steelsium
A scarce first edition of Hibernicus’s Flowers of the Bible, the Old and the New Testament or of the place of the common of almost all materials extracted, digested, and in alphabetical order: and, now, at last, one who is chastened.
This volume is bound in a blind embossed binding of the time over wooden covers, with roll stamp imagery of King David, Solomon, and other religious figures on the borders, both front and back.
Worldcat records only 15 existing copies of this edition in libraries.
One volume in 12mo, 3-584 [of 584]+(6) pages
One note of condition, this volume is in fair shape, with wear to the boards and significant stress at the joints, as well as chipping. The title page and clasps are lacking. There is minor dampstaining and foxing throughout.
