    Description

    [Bible in Latin]. This is a set of six incunable Latin Folio Bible leaves from the Biblia Latina printed in Venice by Bonetus Locatellus for Octavianus Scotus, August 8 1489. These are from the first illustrated Bible to be printed in Italy. They contain the following: the first set of two Bi-Folio leaves still attached as originally printed contains Isaiah 37-39 (partial) with King Hezekiah (King of Judah). There is a woodcut included of the sundial of King Ahaz. Some light browning. The next set of Bi-Folio leaves from the Book of Ezekiel chapters 1-3 includes a rare artist's depiction of the vision of Ezekiel. Some light browning. The next leaf has verses from the Book of Ezekiel chapter forty-eight with the depiction of the new city of Jerusalem. Some more pronounced browning. The last leaf has verses from the Book of Ezekiel 47 with a Woodcut of the Millennial temple. Some browning on recto (where the Woodcut is) with a heavier stain on the verso. The text itself (in most cases) is printed in the center with commentary on the outer portions by Nicolaus de Lyra, Paulus Burgensis and others. They measure about 9 x 13 inches and are rubricated (red and blue ink) on both sides of the leaf.
