Il Nuouo Testamento di Christo Giesu Signore & Saluatore nostro. Di greco tradotto in lingua toscana per Antonio Brucioli. M.D.XXXXI.
 (In Venetia : per Bernardino Bindoni milanese, 1541)
 
 Selling here is an extremely rare and early Bible in the Tuscan language: 'Il Nuovo Testamento di Christo Giesu Signore & Salvatore nostro...', translated from Greek into Tuscan for Antonio Brucioli and printed in Venice, 1541. Modern day Italian has 'evolved' from Tuscan. This being part one of two, the second part (Epistole di San Paulo apostolo, dal greco tradotte...), not present.
  16mo, bound in extremely unusual and near period blind tooled calf, the boards with device depicting what appear to be birds around an unidentified central monogram, all edges gilt. The contents of this part are complete, foliated, meeting collation: [16], 210 [i.e. 320] leaves, with historiated initials, the text printed within single ruled border.  Condition: The binding is holding firmly and is in very good condition, with just some light wear to surface / extremities from handling, short perforation at head of upper hinge, corners a little bumped and scuffed. Contents are holding firmly and in very good condition, with just occasional minor spots or handling marks, some light toning and dust marking at points. Title with early ink inscription at base. Plain endpapers, upper flyleaf removed and the pastedown with a few old ink markings and paper adhesion at head.
 
 A beautiful example of an extremely rare and early New Testament in Tuscan
