Bibliographie

cf. Bechtel, Les Gothiques français C-17 and von Gültlingen, Nourry 35 (1510 edition, with the same dates for the eclipses but with "nouvellement imprime" added to the title), and Mortimer, Harvard French 126 (a later Lyon edition of 1551 using Nourry's woodblocks)

Description

A rare survival of this popular encyclopedia and almanac with medical receipts and moral precepts, as well as a monthly calendar of festivals, comparing the life of man with the cycle of the year, and illustrated with fine woodcuts. Numerous editions were produced from the late fifteenth century onwards, all of which are rare. The woodblocks in the various Nourry editions were smaller copies of those in Guy Marchant's versions from 1491 onwards.

The eclipses listed in c1-2 cover the years 1511-1551, which is the same as Nourry's 1510 edition. The inhabited woodcut L on the title is also used by Nourry for his 1508 and 1510 editions, which have very similar (but not identical) title-pages.

RARE. We have not been able to trace another copy of this edition. Bechtel opines that editions would most likely have been printed every year (p.108).
