42 (INCUNABLE). MARCHESINUS, Johannes Mamotrectus super bibliam. Venice, Simon Bevilaqua, 12 July 1492. 8vo (16,2 x 12,2 cm.) Old vellum with written spine title ('Vocabularius Sacrç Script:'). 273 leaves. Printed in two columns in a gothic type. 36 lines. First text page partly printed in RED. Three small woodcut capitals, initial spaces with guide letters and many three-line capitals of a rather different gothic type. Binding stained and soiled, a small piece of the lower outer corner has been torn off. Title page (with just the word 'Mamotrectus') is missing. Pastedowns soiled and damaged. First blank has a handwritten dedication saying something like 'A Monasterij S.te Vittorie/ ad … Vittorii de Portis'. At the last page a drawing of a bowl and a flower vase accompanies the name of a former owner ('Questo libro … thoma…'). Two pages loosening, some soiling and stains at the beginning and end. A few bookworm trails in the margins. In the last three leaves, some letters are missing because of bookworm damage. Several old inscriptions, especially in the vocabulary at the beginning. In two places, the book was strengthened with a narrow strip of vellum from an old manuscript. At the end, part of a benediction leaflet was used to fasten the book block to its binding. Three more identical leaflets plus four strips of a woodcut decoration were used to fill up the binding.

€ 3750

* This is the 21st of the 23 incunable editions of this text, usually called 'Mammotrectus super bibliam', however, in this book consistently spelled with one M: Mamotrectus, without 'super Bibliam'. In the colophon another version of the title is used: Mamotrectus tam bibliae quam aliorum plurimorum librorum. The meaning of this curious title is 'nourisher on the Bible', strongly suggesting 'the Bible's Breast Milk'. It is a handbook explaining words and notions of the Bible and other important texts, such as the letters of Saint Jerome to Paulinus and Desiderius, but also about clothes of priests, Latin accents and other practical subjects. The Mammotrectus would be useful if you were preparing a sermon or some other priestly act. After 1500, its popularity waned and it was criticized and ridiculed by Erasmus and Rabelais. The book starts with an extensive vocabulary of Latin words and their location in the Bible. The main part is the handbook. It ends with an index after the colophon.

This copy is a well-used practical book with several assets, such as the first text page printed in red and black, and its riddles to solve: the inscriptions at the beginning and the end could supply more information about former owners. The four identical benediction leaflets, used for the binding, probably date from the 17th century. They have been printed on one side only in a cursive Garamond, and contain a ritual benediction starting "I.N.R.I. Qui verbum caro factum est".

Although soiled and a bit damaged, it is an unpolished, authentic incunable that doesn't give itself away at first glance. References: Goff M252; BMC V 517; BSB Ink M-167; GW M20814.
