Luther Bible: Biblia, Das ist die gantze Heilige Schrift, Altes und Neues Testaments

Luneburg, Johann Stern, 1699

----------------------

Beautiful and impressive binding of sturdy leather over wooden boards, with the original decorative parchment (depicting Dr. Martin Luther in the middle) covering the leather; with the original (complete) copper fittings, including clasps; binding good / fine, no loose leaves; full-page print of Martin Luther at the beginning; main title page is missing; title page of the NT has been placed in front of the OT, because the title page of the OT is missing; the first 5 leaves (10 pages) of Genesis and the last page of Revelation (in the back) are good copies of later date, but the copies of Genesis are in Dutch; (very) occasional (small) tears; pp. 162-186 of the book Propheten are somewhat eaten by insects at the top right corner (see pictures); pages are browned, some scattered stains / splodgy; see pictures for more details; old handwritten fragment stuck to the last page; with many woodcuts throughout the book.
