Seller: matts_diaries_curiosities_dustytomes (1,606) 100%, Location: San Francisco, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 192744464748 Up for auction is an intriguing, and extremely rare example of the The Holy Bible or La Sainte bible en Francois, Par Barthélémi Honorati. Printed Lyon year 1582, in French or” François”. This volume includes the Old, and New Testament and is massive and includes 1424 pages measuring 7.5 x 5 inches, approx 4 inches thick. I counted at least 100 - 150 woodcuts in this volume some depicting the Apocalypse.The binding is a vellum wrapped manuscript and appears contemporary with the bible. Found within the binding is a very large manuscript fragment from at least the 15th century measuring 7.5 x 2 inches there is also another fragment at the rear of the book but buried within the binding just a small portion is visible (most likely the same size) One sheet contains a good portion of a handwritten entry, and looks like very early French script (see photos for details) Note: Everything in this volume appears to be original from the 16th century.The condition is rough although still bound together the front hinge is weak, and pulling away slightly from the binding expect heavily stained areas age toning though out. There are rough fore edges, two interior sheets are torn one missing a small section two sheets of the Apocalypse are missing. Nevertheless this is a rare copy I could not find much background info on the web pertaining to this volume. I would say this the volume definitely qualifies as a religious relic. FYI: This week I will be list a small collection of antique books, handwritten manuscripts, and documents from the late 15th to the 17th century.
