Comments and Notes:
Gart der Gesundheit
ISTC does not list this as being at the Dibner Library. Dibner copy might be Goff G-107 instead. Imperfect: Title leaf, colophon and numerous other leaves wanting throughout the volume. Title and imprint from modern added t.p. of unknown origin. However, the text is so incomplete that this information may be incorrect. The imprint for this volume has also been tentatively identified as "Augsburg, printed by Johann Schoensperger, 1499", in Urdang. Text sometimes attributed to Johannes von Cuba as writer or editor. "Largely an original work, although based upon the Herbarius published by Schoeffer in 1484. … This German version antedates the Latin Hortus sanitatis ... by several years." --Goff, p. 257. Leaves printed on both sides. Text in double columns; 38-39 lines per page. Spaces for initials. Cf. Hain 8952* and Goff G-103 (Dinckmut); Hain 8956 and Goff G-107 (Schoensperger). Hand-colored illustrations. Rubricated initials. Some old ms. notes in ink. Every surviving leaf has been skillfully repaired. Top of leaf h1 has been torn away, with some text wanting. Modern full leather binding; blind-tooled spine; in linen-covered clamshell box. Gift of E.R. Squibb & Sons and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., #875.
