Framed Original Page From a Bible of 1492 A.D.

The year Columbus set sail for America An amazing acquisition, a manuscript page from a book printed in Strassburg, in 1492 by Johann Gruninger. This is from a Biblia Latina (Book of Daniel) with commentary by Nicholas de Lyra. The Folio leaf (290 x 202mm) is neatly printed in gothic type in two columns with the biblical text surrounded by commentary. Rubrications (highlights) are done by hand in red and blue, a fine example of early printing.
