IMPRINT:

ILLUSTRATIONS:
Woodcut arms on title-page and several woodcut initials in text.

BINDING:
Victoria University Library copy bound in contemporary half blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards with two metal clasp. The rolls on the blindstamped pigskin (scenes of hunting, etc.) collate with Kyriss 123, 6 and 123, 7, identifying the binding as from the workshop of the successors of Johannes Zoll of Tübingen. Alternatively, as suggested by the ownership markings, Schunkes suggests the hunting stamps were used by a workshop in Wimpfen am Neckar until no later than 1539.

PROVENANCE:
Copy has contemporary ownership marking of the Order of Hospitallers of the Holy Ghost in Bad Wimpfen on title-page, with some early manuscript annotations within text.

CONDITION:
Copy imperfect: lacks leaves LXI-LXIV and CCV-CCVIII.

This sammelband binds Johannes Murmellius’s popular Latin primer and Latin-German dictionary between contemporary editions of Cicero’s letters and Horace’s epics, couching the vernacular German within a classical Latin context. Heavily annotated in contemporary hand.

FORMAT:
CCXVI leaves ; 21 cm. (8vo)
