1573 Commentary on Psalms

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Full vellum with two ties partially present. Unusually there is an external strap attached to the ropes of the binding.

It is written in a neat hand and the eleven full page illustrations are competent. There are all sorts of possibilities. Is it a handwritten copy given to the publisher or printer or is it a copy made by someone who could not afford to purchase a copy?
