This week's picture is part of a mystery I'm trying to solve.
It is the first page in an old Bible, printed in 1590. It has been restored. I am trying to find more information on this particular printing, ie. how many were printed, where are others. It is a beautiful object, the pages are wonderful to the touch, the illustrations elaborate and some colored with red. Just think, it was printed before the years of the plague. Boggles my mind.
Here's a detail..
