Das Neue Testament.

~

Das Neue Testament unsers herrn und heilandes Jesu Christi, verdeutscht von D. Martin Luter.

8vo. [201 x 130 x 32 mm]. 398pp. Contemporary grained red goatskin, the covers with a narrow gilt chain and ball roll border. Smooth spine divided into six panels by a gilt scrolling roll, the corners of the edges of the boards tooled with a gilt floral and ribbon roll, plain turn-ins and matching inside joints enclosing a tree calf doublure with a gilt dart and ball roll border and palmettes in the corners, glazed green free endleaves watermarked "I.F. in Lohr", gilt edges. (The free endleaves slightly stained around the edges from contact with the turn-ins and inside joints).
Baireuth: 1823.

A Lutheran New Testament printed in double columns. COPAC locates only one copy of this edition, at Cambridge.

This binding is most unusual - the covers and spine are left largely unadorned, without any lettering; the tree calf doublures (which may be treated paper) are striking, as are the facing green glazed endleaves; there is an 8mm gap between the edge of the boards and the text block at the fore-edge, but almost no space at the head and foot. It is in very good condition.
