2 THESSALONIANS 1:1-3:12. “The Parousia of Christ.” FIRST EDITION. Printed in Mainz by Peter Jordan. 2 historiated initials, 1 block initial, 1 HUGE woodcut initial. Darlow & Moule 4200. Interestingly, this early “Roman Catholic” translation largely follows Luther’s OT (1524-32) and Emser’s NT (1528). EXCELLENT condition; minor spotting to outer edges. Text is of Christ’s second “appearance” [Gk: parousia], and may well be the FIRST written account of it in the NT, c.50-52.
