991. [Facsimile - Gutenberg]

Biblia Sacra Mazarinea [Facsimile of the original Gutenberg Bible of 1454-1455].

[Paris], Éditions Les incunables, (1985)

2 vol., large folio.

Publ. binding: red morocco, covers ruled with gilt triple fillet, gilt orn. spines with raised bands and labels, gilt inside dentelles, a.e.g. (spines sl. faded). Boxes.

Two volumes identical to those of the Mazarine Library (Paris), faithfully reproduced in the 1980s and luxuriously bound in the same style as the Mazarine copy. It is currently one of the rare facsimiles at identical size and on beautiful laid paper. These very luxurious volumes were printed with relief plates, which remind of the relief of the characters that can be found on an incunabulum. The third volume, containing a study by Jean-Marie Dodu with a transcription and a translation of the Bible's text, is not present as often on the market.
