Descripción:

First edition, 4to, 131pp., one of 233 numbered copies, A Campbell-Logan Co. binding of purple quarter morocco, using marbled papers especially designed for this edition by Iris Nevins. Text with four nine-line initials in red and blue (replicating 15th century rubrication), two pages of typographic facsimiles. ACCOMPANIED BY A LARGE FOLIO SWEYNHEYM & PANNARTZ LEAF from the 1471 printing of Nicholas of Lyra's "Postilla super totam Bibliam." The book and leaf (which is secured behind a hinged cloth mat and has slight old worm damage at bottom outer blank margin) contained in an impressive (15 1/2 x 11 3/4 inch) navy blue folding cloth box constructed of acid-free materials by Jace Graf of Cloverleaf Studio. Aside from Gutenberg and his immediate associates, there are no figures more important in the early history of printing than Sweynheym and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany. First at Subiaco and later in Rome, they produced an imposing catalogue of first editions of ancient authors, which for the first time systematically exploited the potential of the new technology as a means for disseminating humanistic texts to a large audience. The present scholarly work is the first book to create from the available information a broadly based and detailed picture of the activities of these two printers. The book examines in a full and careful way their lives and achievements within the context of their newly developed craft as well as the humanistic environment they encountered in Rome in the 1460s and 1470s. In the process of his account, Professor Hall challenges a number of widely held assumptions about the origins of printing in Italy. The volume is printed on luxurious mould made Frankfurt paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press, for more than 40 years one of America's most distinguished private presses. The 14 1/2 x 10 1/2 inch leaves are in excellent condition, and they show to good advantage the famous and beautiful type Sweynheym and Pannartz first used in 1467, recognised now as the earliest truly roman font. Even though Sweynheym and Pannartz produced more than 50 different editions, their press runs were normally only 275 copies. Consequently, their books are now very rare, and complete copies are extravagantly priced. The present leaf book offers an uncommon opportunity for research libraries as well as collectors interested in early printing or in private press work and the book arts to obtain an example of the work of Sweynheym and Pannartz in a form that is handsomely produced and at the same time not prohibitively expensive.

Descripción Bird & Bull Press for Philip J. Pirages, (McMinnville, OR), 1991. Octavo. 132pp. One of 275 copies printed for Philip J. Pirages. The leaf is from a copy of Volume I of the Sweynheym and Pannartz first edition of Nicholas of Lyra's Postilla super totam bibliam, completed on 18 November 1471 in the Palazzo Massimo in Rome-only 239 of 452 leaves of that copy remain. The leaf bears a two-line rubricated initial on the recto. Sweynheim and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany, worked at Subiaco and Rome, making Humanist and classical texts available to a wider audience. Since their press runs were normally only 275 copies, their editions are now seldom seen and costly. This is a rare opportunity to study an example of their type, first used in 1467 and now recognized as the first truly Roman font. Each chapter of the accompanying book begins with a 9-line initial in blue ink. Book bound in quarter-morocco with marbled paper over boards. Note from publisher laid in. Leaf housed in a mylar envelope framed behind a hinged cloth mat in the lid of a folio-sized blue cloth clamshell case, with a fitted pocket for the book. Some marking on outside of box, else fine. Bookplate. (Chalmers 197). Nº de ref. de la librería 27644
