A print, published in Germany in 1894, showing the start of the 42-line bible -- the preface of St. Hieronymus. The original is in Vienna, Austria.

One wonders how long it took to make a page like this ready for printing, centuries before Pagemaker, Quark Express, and gasp, the backspace key. Any errors on the page would've had to be carefully scraped off, or the poor calligraphers would have had to start afresh.

This chromo is faintly illuminated, making the colours even richer.

This is in very good condition. Blank on the reverse.

Sent to you in an acid-free sleeve with sturdy backing.

Size: approx. 6" x 9.5"
