This is a leaf of early printing from a Biblia latina. - Biblia cum summarioru(m) apparatu pleno qaudrupliciq(ue) repertorio insignita, This leaf contains The Prologue to 1 Maccabees as well as the first chapter. Maccabees is a book written in Hebrew by a Jewish author after the restoration of an independent Jewish kingdom by the Hasmonean dynasty, about the latter part of the 2nd century BC. The original Hebrew is lost and the most important surviving version is the Greek translation contained in the Septuagint. It was printed at Lyon, by Jacques Mareschal for Simon Vincent in 1519. The leaf measures 168x 120 mm. in totality and contains fifty-six lines of gothic type, printed double column in Latin. There are 8-line historiated letters located at the beginning of each chapter. During the Sixteenth Century, Lyon was the most important center for printing in France. Jacques (alias Roland) Mareschal (1475-1529) was a master printer, a "seller" by 1522, as well as a "courier" for the Co-Fraternity of the Printers, a powerful guild organization of the age. Aside from this St. Jerome Bible, Mareschal was well known for his much-copied 1512 edition of the Bible as well as later versions in 1523, 1525 and 1526. Simon Vincent, one of three major publishers in Lyon at the time (along with Gueynard and Jacques Guinta), contracted with several printers simultaneously, Mareschal being one of them. Variations on the colophon might include the publisher's name or mark only, or both publisher and printer's name. Simon also published such famous works as Luis Coronel's "Physicae Perscrutationes" (1512), Coronel being a personal friend and supporter of Erasmus. The verso contains the same amount of lines, type & layout. (Adam's B 997; Baudrier XI, 401; Bibelslg. D WLB Stgt.
