    Seventeenth-Century Four Gospels in Armenian, Printed in Venice

    Girg Srbo Awetarani (Book of the Holy Gospel). Venice: Printing House of Michiel Angelo Barboni, 1685-1686. Second edition. Quarto. 7 by 5 inches. 450 pages. Four engravings and decorative head- and tail-pieces, and decorative initials. Contemporary, or near contemporary, full brown embossed leather, spine with five raised bands. Staining and soiling to sheets and endleaves, one engraving with repaired tear, some shoulder ornaments trimmed close, some pages repaired with added paper or backing. Considering all faults, still a good copy and example. Published in Venice by Martiros Aguletsi three decades before the establishment of the Mekhitarist Congregation, it is the second edition of the four gospels and more complete than the first (1680). Notes on concordances on the margins and the bottom. Number 125 in the Catalogue of Armenian Books. From the collection of a gentleman of New York.
