An ORIGINAL LATE 16th Century New Testament in Spanish - This is presumed to be the version of Cassiodorus Reyna (Casiodoro de Reina) , revised by Cipriano de Valera (Darlow and Moule). Slightly AT FAULT, lacks LAST LEAF ONLY. This copy ends on page 740, and this book is given (Lowndes & D & M again) as having 742 pp. The Printer "Ricardo del Campo" was actually Richard Field of London. Field's Protestantism led him to publish a number of Spanish-language Protestant works for sale in Catholic Spain, under the name "Ricardo del Campo" including this one. Blind stamped full leather, string bound, quite worn with loss to the leather. Splitting to the edges of the spine, but though the front cover is detached, the rear cover is holding firm by the string. 4 raised bands to the (worn/rubbed) spine, with gilt decoration to the compartments and the Title 'Testamen Nvevo' in gilt to the second compartment. Loss to the top of the spine leather. Possibly contemporary, but also possibly bound a little later than issue (? ) as the book is close-trimmed in parts, but losing ONLY a little, here and there, of a former owner's tiny hand-written notes near the edge of the margin. The text and printed margin notes are all intact. A browny stain to the front pastedown in a triangular shape to the bottom half of the endpapers and extends through the book, but petering out gradually at around page 25. The stain can be easily seen on the front pastedown and front free endpaper, but is quite light after that - overall pretty negligible. For his title page to this book, and for other books' he printed, Field adopted an Aldine device, an anchor with the Latin motto Anchora Spei, "anchor of hope" which previously belonged to Vautrollier, with whom he was apprenticed. Here there is a wood-engraved title letter to the Preface, a larger 'cut' and illustrated title letter to the beginning of the book, and similar at the end of 'S. Matheo'. Some smaller illustrated title letters in the text. Printed marginal refs on every page of the Testament. (12 pp = Title, blank verso, Preface + Contents list of Testament Books) + 740 pp (lacks last page 741/2) . 'n/i Spanish' and 1/6 - written in old brown ink on the top of the front free endpaper, and some notes in pencil in a much more recent hand - these state that there are some old "Mss side notes in Latin and Old French - page of Revelation missing at end". There is a neat hand-written line of tiny mss text running along the front edge of the title page, and many small neat side notes all in fading brown ink and some light old ink underlinings to parts of the text - likely Latin and Old French as surmised by the former owner? . Browned page fore-edges as expected, and small tears/loss to the edges of 2 pages only. One tiny hole to the text of pages 109/110, but the body of the book is generally clean and tight - just the odd mark here and there - and the underlining and hand-written notes in the margins as noted above. Richard Field (or Feild) 1561–1624 was a printer and publisher in Elizabethan London, best known for his close association with, and printing of, the poems of William Shakespeare, with whom he grew up, in Stratford-upon-Avon. RARE - but lacking the final leaf. (The final 2 pages can be found online in a digital copy, which is shown as also defective with a hole in that last leaf of the copy held. ). See Images. ; 24mo 5" - 6" tall
