Apocrypha [only].

[N.p., c.1596]. 8vo. (162) pp., signatures [Ss7]-Eee2. Later half mottled calf over cloth boards, the blindstamped spine with bands and a gilt lettered green label, the first page with early manuscript repeating the word "Apocrypha", a few other instances of marginalia through the text. The margin of the first leaf slightly ragged, some general patina to the text, otherwise very good, the spine worn with loss to the ends and a small patch towards the lower edge. Without a title page or colophon it is not possible to identify which Bible this Apocrypha would originally have been published within. The only clue is provided by the spine label on the 19th century binding which gives the date as 1596, and certainly the appearance of the paper and the print would accord with this period. It does not, however, match the 8vo Bible listed by Herbert from this year (no. 177), in which the Apocrypha commences on the verso of a leaf rather than the recto, as here. Item #37679
