From LIVIUS, Titus (59 B.C.-17 A.D.). Romische Historie usz Tito livio gezogen. Translated from Latin into German by Bernhard Schöfferlin and Ivo Wittich. Mainz: Johannes Schoeffer, 1505. Gothic type. 28.6 x 20.1 cm Rubricated " D " to verso. FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN of these woodcuts reflected in their excellence and deep impression. Fine later hand color. This edition was the most copiously illustrated book in early Mainz printing. Although the woodcuts resemble the work of the Late Master of the Grüninger workshop, who illustrated Grüninger's 1502 Virgil, they are probably not from that atelier, since Grüninger's own edition of this translation of Livy, published in 1507, used a different series of illustrations by the Grüninger Master himself. (see Adams L-1357; BM STC German p. 521; Muther 645; Roth, Die Mainzer Buchdruckerfamilie Schoeffer (1898) 16,2. (2)). Excellent impression on thick velin paper. Worm holes to margin.

Similarly I was able to hone my specialist interests in early photography, the history of science and Helvetica, something that I hope is still reflected in the items I offer. The aim is to offer the rare, interesting, unusual, beautiful and strange. So at the very least we hope your visit to the site to be a rewarding and enlightening experience!
