MELANCHTHON, Philipp (1497-1560). Corpus doctrinae Christianae. Leipzig: Ernest Vögelin, January 1560.

First Latin edition, preserving rare, possibly unique, single-sheet woodcuts of Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon, with contemporary colouring, as pastedowns. An inscription on each print records the place, date, and hour of the subject’s death (Luther’s is recorded as in Philipp Drachstadt’s house at Eisleben) as well as his age. The Melanchthon image carries the imprint of Friedrich Ortenberg, Briefmaler, at Magdeburg, who seems to be otherwise unknown. No other copies of these woodcuts have been located. Appearing for the first time in this edition is Melanchthon’s refutation of Michael Servetus and the Anabaptists; a German-language edition appeared the same year. Adams M-1105; BLSTC German p.610; VD-16 M-2883.

2° (302 x 199mm). Roman types, some Greek, printer’s device on title, woodcut historiated and decorative initials. (Lower corner of title clipped, very occasional small stain.) Contemporary German blindstamped pigskin dated 1560, one roll incorporating the arms of Saxony, woodcut single-sheet of Martin Luther (front) and Philipp Melanchthon (back) mounted as pastedowns (see below), fully coloured by a contemporary hand. Provenance: Georg Jenicius of Freiburg, 1629 (title inscription).
