“Die Kupferbibel” (New Testament) Matthäus Merians from 1630.
Facsimile of the luxury edition of the Württembergische Landesbibliothek Stuttgart. All maps are reproduced in the formats of the original; the colours of the old colourings were left unchanged. Very valuable Bible - the current purchase price with the publishing house amounted to over 1.000, 00? Pages in old German script with the reproduction of the 77 copper engravings of the original in seven-colour printing. Title page hand-gilt in 23 1/2 carat.
The cover itself is made of vegetable tanned, noble full cow leather. Artful blind and genuine gold embossing as well as richly ornamented metal fittings and double clasps complete the book. The sheets at the end of the volume corresponding to the type area of the original allow personal entries of the owners and make this edition a family Bible of truly growing value. The gilt head edge is somewhat faded. 6 frets. Wonderful coloured pictures.
Coron Verlag Monika Schoeller, Lachen am Zürichsee 1989 (publisher).

The clasps to close the book are unfortunately missing and there is a small spot of rubbing on the leather. Otherwise, in a very good condition. A beautiful addition to your library!
