Last day of the week; last book on the pile. And there she was, staring at me, the baby Jesus in her arms.
RB MISC 3181
Ignatii Coutino … : mariale, sive conciones super evangelia festivitatum sacratissimae Virginis Mariae:
The google translation is : Ignatius Coutino: marian, sermons on the Gospels or the most sacred festivals of the Virgin Mary.
I’m not sure whether she is standing in a boat; what else could it be. The image is fine and is located on the fly leaves.
Isn’t it just amazing? There were no watermarks that I could discern in the book. The book itself is squarish; blind tooled leather over paste boards; 3 double cords, laced in.The text was printed in Cologne in 1661.
I just thought you might be interested…..
