This is a leaf of early printing from the Biblica Latina printed in Venice in 1519 by Lucantonio Giunta reprinted from an earlier 1511 edition. This leaf is from Ezekiel chapters 17 through 18. Lucantonio Giunta was one of the major figures in a distinguished family of Florentine publishers, printers and booksellers. He was born in Florence in 1457 and was a bookseller there until he moved to Venice in 1477, where he continued his trade until 1489 when he established his own press. Active in Venice between 1489 and 1538, he and his heirs distinguished themselves particularly for their large number of liturgical books, missals and breviaries, many with beautiful illustrations, as well as illustrated books in the vernacular for the mass market. The leaf contains 52 lines of Latin text printed double column in a Gothic typeface. The Book of Ezekiel describes itself as the words of the Ezekiel ben-Buzi, a priest living in exile in the city of Babylon between 593 and 571 BCE. Most scholars today accept the basic authenticity of the book, but see in it significant additions by a "school" of later followers of the original prophet. The Verso contains the same amount and type of print. (Adams B995; Essling 145; Sander 1002). This leaf contains minor staining. A Great Gift For Any Manuscript Collector We Now Accept PayPal!
