Buchbeschreibung Bird & Bull Press [McMinnville] for Phillip J. Pirages, first edition, 1991, 1991. Limited edition, this being one of 239 copies for sale from a total of 275. Quarter-morocco and marbled boards, 8vo, in a clamshell box with a special windowed compartment for the original leaf. 128, [3] pp. With an original leaf from the Sweynheym and Pannartz edition of Nicolas of Lyra's Postilla super totam bibliam completed on 18 November 1471. From the text: "Esteemed already in their own time as the first printers in Italy, Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Pannartz were also the first to have carried the new technology of printing with movable type beyond the confines of the German-speaking world. Working from about 1464 in the monastery of Santa Scolastica at Subiaco and then later, between 1467 and 1473, in the Palazzo Massimo in Rome, they produced in less than a decade some fifty distinct editions of more than thirty separate titles. The printers’ accomplishment is underscored both by the awesome size and importance of the books and the fact that they were produced for the most part in the four-year period from 1469 through 1472. Printed on some of the largest paper then available and on occasion running to more than 400 leaves, the large royal folios of the Roman press are particularly impressive. Multiple folio volumes were sometimes required to complete a single work, as, for example, the two-volume collection of the Epistolez of Saint Jerome first published in 1468 and then again in 1470. The Catena aurea of Aquinas in 1470 and the great Latin Bible of 1471 are close rivals to the Jerome, hut all the two-volume titles are dwarfed by the monumental Postilla super totam bibliam of Nicholas of Lyra. Issued in five volumes between November 1471 and May 1472 and comprising a total of 1,832 leaves, it is - by the sheer number of its pages -the single largest edition of the fifteenth century.The historical significance of the Swcynheym and Pannartz books transcends, of course, their size." Copy No. 213. Fine in box with minor scuffs. Artikel-Nr. ABE-42736
