Novum Testamentum Latine Interprete Hieronymo
Edited by Constantin vonTischendorf
1850 - Leipzig - Avenarius Et Mendelssohn
11.5" x 8"; xlvi, 421
The so called Codex Amiatinus; a latin transcription of the New Testament, edited by the famous biblical schola Constantin von Tichendorf.
The Codex Amiatinus is the earlies extant manuscript of the almost complete bible in Latin. The only book lacking is that of Baruch. It was originally a gift to the Pope from the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, and the original resides today in the Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana in Florence.
The Codex also contains the Epistula Hieronymi ad Damsum, the prolegomena to the four gospels.
Von Tischendorf devoted much of his career to discovering early manuscripts of the Canonical texts. His mission was to discover the most accurate, or earliest, versions of the holy texts. This is the first edition of his reproduction of the Codex for biblical scholars.
This was the personal copy of a Philip Smith, whose signature is found in ink to a front blank, dated 1878. On the reverse of the same blank, he has written a summary of the nature of the text, inluding a brief history of its provenance, as well as notes on further reading.
This copy is from Gloucester public library, and contains plates and stamps to that effect.
Rebound in a modern cloth library binding. Externally excellent with almost no wear. There is a library barcode to the front free endpaper, and the remains of a library plate. There is a contemporary ink signature to the front blank, as well as copious ink annotation to the reverse.There are library stamps to the rearof the title page, and there is one beneath the dedication. The front blank and half title page are heavily foxed. Otherwise generally clean and bright throughout, with the rear facsimilie only being somewhat foxed. There is a pocket appended in which are two articles from The Guardian newspaper from 1929. Both articles concern issues of theological scholarship. Firmly bound. Overall: GOOD
