Edition of the Bible nowhere to be found on the market.
Coeval leather binding with six raised bands, with missing pieces of leather and wear. Beautiful plate on the frontispiece, two colours, with the inscription BIBLIA at the top and a vignette depicting St. Jerome drawn by Guillaume Leroy, a French engraver of which little is known; flaws and wear, also on the antique restoration, caused by humidity. A tear, with no missing parts, on page 231. Old stains at the beginning and at the end. Very few handwritten notes on the margins. Numerous illustrations throughout the volume, with large engravings opposite page 1 and on the back of pages 134 and 215. The text, in Gothic font, is on four columns: the two outer ones have Biblical references.
