pseudo-GUILLERMUS PARISIENSIS (Johannes Herolt?). Postilla super epistolas et evangelia. Basel: Adam Petri, 30 November 1516.

4° (196 x 148mm). 194 leaves. Woodcut title by Urs Graf with type in-lays, printed in red and black, a woodcut series also by Graf of 97 (including repeats) small vignettes (42 x 33mm) illustrating the life of Christ. (Tiny wormhole in first few leaves repaired, final leaf repaired at hinge.) 19th-century brown morocco gilt, gilt edges, by F. Bedford. Provenance: some marginal annotations washed; Mount Stuart bookplate.

The small woodcuts illustrating the life of Christ which adorn this edition emphasize the personal, devotional nature of this handbook explaining the lessons read at services throughout the year. Not in Adams.
