Biblia sacra veteris et novi testamenti
Secundum editionem vulgatam. Three parts in one vol. Published by Thomas Guarin, Basel 1578. First part 612 p., second part 251 p., third part 224 p. Not collated. With two folded maps of the Garden of Eden and the Route of the Exodus, one full-page map of the eastern Mediterranean and adjacent countries, woodcut title, numerous woodcut illustrations by Tobias Stimmer, including more than 20 hand-coloured or partly coloured, numerous woodcut initials, including some hand-coloured, and woodcut vignettes. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin.
After the first large-format edition of the Bible (Neue Künstliche Figuren, Basel, Guarin, 1576), the Schaffhausen artist Tobias Stimmer (1539 - 1584) produced a pictorial Bible in small format with the publisher Thomas Guarin in 1578. This Vulgate is characterised by the artistic understanding of the late Renaissance and shows the full talent of the Upper Rhine artist.
