Venice, 1471 14 14 0 This is one of the rarest of all printed Bibles. There was no copy in the Caxton Exhibition, and there is none in the British Museum. There is a bad copy in the Spencer-Rylands library which wants the last leaf of the Table (fol. 7 of Vol. I), this last leaf of Table containing the references to foll. cc.xxxiiii--cc.lvii of the text.

Stout small folio, 383 beautiful woodcuts in contemporary colouring; very fine and very large copy in the original boards, covered with stamped leather, and mounted with centre and corner-pieces of brass
1492 250 0 0 One of the rarest books of the famous Venetian school of design, which brought ont in the Poliphilo its finest example. Many of the cuts are marked with the initial b, which (in the Poliphilo) used to be read as revealing the hand of Bellini, and in which a later interpreter finds the name of Barbari (Jacopo dei Barbari).
“One of the most important, and most richly illustrated, of the Venetian vignette-books. . . The designer succeeded in producing a series of pictures full of grace and charm. . . Several of the illustrations are marked with a small ‘b,' a signature which, so far as we know at present, appears here for the first time.” So says Dr. Lippmann, who goes on to state that the designer of the Italian cuts imitated, but recomposed and improved, the engravings in the 1483 German Bible. If this were the case, the pictures changed a good deal more than their climate when they crossed the Alps. The metamorphosis was magical.

Venice, 1487 128 00 A lovely example of Venetian vellum printing, done on the purest of vellum in small Gothic characters. Only two other copies on vellum are believed to be extant, one of them in the Bibliothèque Nationale; the other I know not where.
Mr. Copinger's bibliography needs to be corrected by the statement that the first leaf of the book is the title which he evidently did not believe in, and that it consists of no more than the single word “ Biblia.”
The book is printed in double columns, 52 lines to the column, and has signatures as follows: a-z, 7, C, , A-P, in eights ; Q in six;
R-Z, AA-DD in eights; EE in ten; aa-cc in eights; dd in ten.
