Flavius Josephus - Flavii josephi antiquitatum judaicarum libri xx. Adiecta in fine appendicis loco vita josephi - 1554

Opera omnia by Flavio Josephus, Basel edition by Sigmund Gelen from 1554. Translated and edited by him (1497-1554).


Complete work [11] + 886 + [34]

The work is in a very good state of preservation, except for the binding which, due to its condition and differences between the paper of the guards and those of the frontispiece, must be from the 18th century approximately.

Small trace of xylograph insect without affecting the text on pages 1 to 147 and later from 477 to 596 (see photos).

Hardly foxing and sporadic sections with acidification of the paper.

Some pages have underlined lines and annotations in the margins dating from the 18th century, judging by the pen and ink used, as for example on page 484 where the Flavian testimony is found, it can be read “Christus”.

I will gladly answer any questions from the bidders in Spanish or English.
