Abstract

Part of the collection of books that Willi Fells gave the University Library in 1946 included five incunabula, those books printed before 1501. This colourful well-bound manual for the clergy, printed in Venice in 1476, is one example. It contains etymological and grammatical explanations of difficult words in the Bible, and details on the liturgical hours. The rubrication – colours blue and red – were added by hand.
