 Early Printed Bible Pages


PRINTED ONLY 56 YEARS AFTER THE INVENTION OF THE PRINTING PRESS

The Printing Press was invented by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 in Wurttemberg in the German States. This leaf was printed in Basle in 1496 by Nicolaus Kessler.

4000 - This is a leaf of incunabula from the Commentary on Job, or Moralia, sive Expositio in Job, written by Pope Gregory I commonly known as Saint Gregory the Great (540 - 604). Gregory was pontiff from 590 to his death in 604 and is well known for his writings, which were more prolific than those of any of his predecessors as pope. The Moralia was written between 578 and 595, begun when Gregory was at the court of Tiberius II at Constantinople, but finished only after he had already been in Rome for several years. It is Gregory's major work. This edition was printed by Nicolaus Kessler in 1496 at Basle. The small folio leaf measures 288 X 200 mm in totality and contains 55-lines of Gothic type (1:180G, 2:82G, 4:93G, 6:64G) printed double column in Latin. There are 3-line red versal letters beginning each chapter. Verso: contains the same type, lines & layout. (Goff G432, Hain 7934, GW 11434, Proctor 7690, BMC III 772) This leaf contains minor staining & wear around the edges....................................................$75.00

4001 - 16TH TO EARLY 17TH CENTURY HUGE BIBLE PAGE, THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH, 10.5" X 18.5", printed on thick laid paper, Gothic type in German. German language translations of the Bible have existed since the middle Ages. The most influential is Luther's translation, which still continues to be most widely used in the Germanic world today. The first movable type bible was printed by Gutenberg in the mid 15th Century. We offer a large leaf from the Old Testament Book of Jeremiah from a bible printed in the 16th - early 17th century in Germany where printing was born. The Book of Jeremiah (is the second of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, and the second of the Prophets in the Christian Old Testament). The superscription at chapter 1:1-3 identifies it as "the words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah." and places the prophet historically from the reforms of King Josiah in 627 BCE through to the assassination of the Babylonian - appointed governor of Judah in 582. [Of all the prophets, Jeremiah comes through most clearly as a person, ruminating to his scribe Baruch about his role as a servant of God with little good news for his audience. The book is a representation of the message and significance of the prophet substantially intended for the Jews in Babylonian exile: its purpose is to explain the disaster as God's response to Israel's pagan worship: the people, says Jeremiah, are like an unfaithful wife and rebellious children: their infidelity and rebelliousness make judgment inevitable, although restoration and a new covenant are foreshadowed. Each page is printed on sides, some light age tone.........................$40.00/each
