Description

ECCLESIASTES 1-2 Title. “Vanitie of vanities . . . all is vanitie” (1:2). FIRST EDITION 59-line “She” variant (corrected), printed in 1611, but likely published 1611-1613, in London, by Robert Barker. Herbert 319A. This leaf is very slightly distinct from the 59-line 1611 “He” variant, being a printer’s “correction,” and distinct also from the second 59-line folio in 1617 and all subsequent editions. FINE+ condition, nice margins, with two (2) WOODCUT initials. Size: 15.25″ x 10.25″. Light soiling about the margins, small light stain to inner upper corner (see pics). COA on premium “gold leaf” paper w. signature and seal. A premium leaf, very popular.

Leaf and COA set in a large, museum-quality Archival Booklet.
