Kern des Bybels.

Hage: A. de Groot en Zoonen, 1750. 80pp. First edition. Illustrated with seven full-page engravings. Title, headers, and tailpieces printed in red. This miniature Dutch thumb bible, a fine example of the skilled craftsmanship of the de Groot family of printers, consists of a selection of six short bible stories. Although often cited as being dated 1701, the proper date is 1750; the "L" can be mistaken for an "I" in some copies. Handsomely bound in contemporary gilt-tooled dark red morocco. A.e.g. This is the Houghton copy, with his book label on the inside front cover and monogram stamp to front flyleaf. Some gilt loss to edges, light wear to covers, else remarkably fine. (Adomeit, "Thumb Bibles," no. 14). (1 3/4 by 1 1/8; 44x29mm). Item #27334

Price: $1,500.00
