1911 · Berlin
A study of a papal bull against the Turks, in German. First comes => a facsimile of all pages of the bull, which was printed with type matching that used in the Gutenberg Bible; then comes a transcription of it, with the original Latin version in parallel columns to the German transcription. The commentary follows.
This is in the series "Seltene drukeder Koniglichen Bibliothek zu Berlin. In Nachbildungen hrsg. unter Leitung von Paul Schwenke I." Limited to 265 copies, this being => one of 250 on ordinary paper. Original grey printed wrappers, slightly chipped and partially sun darkened, front wrapper starting to separate from text with some loss of paper on spine. The facsimile is in the style of the era, not capturing the appearance of the vellum but showing the printed document's added red penwork; and the paper of the pamphlet is clean and nice. A good copy. (Inventory #: 36740)
