1. Biblia, Das ist: Die gantze Heilige Schrifft, Alten und Neuen Testaments. Nach der U[e]bersetzung und mit den Vorreden und Randglossen D. Martin Luthers, mit Neuen Vorreden, Summarien, weitläuffigen Parallelen, Anmerckungen und geistlichen Anwendungen, auch Gebeten auf jedes Capitel: Wobey zugleich Nöthige Register und eine Harmonie des Neuen Testaments beygefüget sind. Ausgefertiget unter der Aufsicht und Direction Christoph Matthäi Pfaffen....  Tübingen: Cotta, 1729. Large folio (27x45x18), prelims + 1248pp + NT prelims + 582pp + 'harmonia der vier Evangelisten' + 'registers'. Copper engraved headpieces, initials and plates (2 double). Bound in contemporary blind-tooled pigskin, now darkened, over heavy wooden boards with beveled edges. Remnants of embellished brass clasps. Lacking all metal corner fittings. The double full-page copper plates are maps. The first depicts a plan of Jerusalem and its environs (detached but present), the primary features being numbered up to 252 (annotated separately in an accompanying table). Bordering Jerusalem are 12 subsets, each depicting images of the temple, sacrificial objects, a 'high priest', the 'Vision of Ezekiel' etc. The other double full-page copper plate depicts Palestine, the Promised Land and a 'military camp of the children of Israel,' with 42 annotations below the illustrations. Contains the Apocrypha. Rarely found complete. Inner hinge is understandably cracked, along with a few of the preliminary joints, but binding is strong. Some endpapers are torn or creased. Ink inscription in a fine German hand on the front paste-down and first front endpaper, traced to Stuttgart. Tear to title-page. 6 frets on the spine, with significant loss of leather near head. Three tears to rear cover (3', 4' and 6') with some light patchy stains. Overall condition is good.
