A very good copy of a profusely and well illustrated 16th century Bible. (lacking 1 leaf of OT and 24 leaves of index and the colophon at the end of the volume).

"The Old Testament blocks measure 55 x 78 mm (2¼" x 3 1/8") extended to column width by ornamental side-strips, with a few larger blocks, 115 x 73 mm, in Exodus and Kings. The New Testament blocks are 55 x 48 mm. The artist of these illustrations worked from various sources, notably the three sets of woodcuts by Hans Holbein, Bernard Salomon, and Pierre Eskrich, introduced at Lyons from 1538 to 1562 and widely used in Bibles and picture books. This Venetian set also has scenes not usually illustrated". Mortimer, Harvard, Italian 16th Century Books, No. 62.
