A fine copy of an important French Bible, with an engraved title by Hoorbe

 

La Saincte Bible contenant le Vieil et Nouveau Testament. 1587. Paris. Jacques du Puys.

 

A fine edition, sumptuously bound in impressive morocco gilt, of a French translation of the Bible; generously illustrated with half and full page views, historic scenes and maps of the Holy Land and Biblical antiquities, buildings, monuments and places. As most of the woodcuts occur in the Old Testament, the motifs are mostly Jewish. The engraved title to the first volume does not appear to be present in all copies; in fact, a similar copy has been described as a presentation copy recently. The engraving shows the Crucified Christ flanked by the Royal family of France (Henry III, his wife and the Queen Mother, Catherine de Medicis). The illustration is composed of 32 woodcuts, half and full page.

 

Not in Adams. Chambers (ref.), French Bibles, 513. Not in Brunet.

 

 

Two volumes in folio (408 mm x 276 mm). Sumptuous 17th century red morocco gilt, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, boards with arabesque centre device, surrounded by double gilt fillets and cornerpieces, inner dentelle gilt. Collation is as follows: 1 blank + 7 ff. + 619 + 1 blank; 1 blank +480 +1 ff. [title to New Testament] + 295 + 21 ff. + 1 blank.

 

Binding condition rubbed and bumped, mainly to hinges, some soiling and darkening

 

Text condition a few leaves toned and browned, some uniformly, but generally a very fresh and clean copy, with generous margins
