Biblia Sacra: Vugatae Editonis Sixti V. Pont. Max IVSSV, Recognita et Clementis VIII

Paris: Sumptibus Galpari, et al, 1629. Full-Leather. Good. Item #011068

Approx. 4.5" x 6.5". 1073pp. plus Jeromes Prologue and several indices. Solid bible in Latin. The title page seems to be unbound and affixed to a bound page with similar titling but seems to be partially written by hand and with the date of 1664 at the bottom. The title seems to state this was a common edition published for Pope Sixtus the IV, (1414 - 1484), and revised under Clement VIII, (1536 - 1605). It is unclear however exactly when this was printed. Bound in full contemporary leather with raised spine bands. Gilt title upon red calf label in second compartment and gilt decoration in all others. Marbled paste-downs which are likely contemporary and a fairly new craft in Europe at the time. It is also likely there were matching end-papers which are had apparently been excised Square, tight and fairly clean throughout with minimum scattered foxing or toning. Front bottom third of hinge cracked but professionally strengthened and holding quite firm. Scuffing to boards with a small loss at the crown. Top margin of first page of text torn though not affecting any text. Some chipping to the lat few leves. Lacking rear end-paper. A couple of later ownership signatures on the verso of the flyleaf. Wear to edges and tips. A few areas of rubbing to hinges, spine ends and tips. A very handsome collectable copy.
