Incunabula Incunabula is defined by John Carter and Nicholas Barker (“ABC for Book Collectors”) as the Latin description of early books as printed in cunabulis (in the swaddling clothes) of the new-born art of printing, or, books printed before 1501. Elegant, no? Highlights include the first complete Theocritus, the first collected edition of the sermons of St. Augustine, Lyonese incunables with similar Sisteron provenance (and in very curious bindings), collections of inuncable leaves, and more.
