Basel, Pamphilius Gengenbach 1522 - 641 (= 623) p. Contemporary blind-stamped Vellum over wooden boards with 3 raised bands, small 8° H. 11 x L. 8 x W. 4 cm. (Some wormholes in the binding, a single wormhole within the text throughout the text block and some very small ones in the bottom corner of the final pages. Without the final blank page, occasionally some waterstains, the corners of a few pages have been restored. With many old underlinings and annotations in the margins and several entries on the flyleafs. Each chapter is rubricated with a leather strap. Rare small edition of the Latin translation of the Greek New Testament by Desiderius Erasmus, 1466/69-1536. The translation by Erasmus was the first ever printed non-Vulgate version of the Bible in Latin and became very popular going through numerous editions. However, this edition is the only one that was printed in such a small format. Besides the Bible text it contains a dedication, a preface and the 'Argumentum by Erasmus. The work is illustrated with 3 woodcut decorative panels and a woodcut on the title page, depicting the descent of the Holy Spirit on Mary and the disciples, 8 woodcuts within the text, each placed at the beginning of a Bible book and depicting the accompanying author, and 3 woodcut tail-pieces. Several capital letters are handcoloured with red paint. Each of the woodcuts is handcoloured and in case of the woodcuts within the text also heightened with gold. The work is bound in an attractive blind-stamped pigskin binding, which closes with 2 clasps on straps. Both the front and back cover and the clasps are decorated with a matching floral design. A beautiful and charming copy.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
