Leipzig: Karl W. Hiersemann, March 1928. Small 4to. iv, 103,  pp. With 35 illustrations in text. 192 incunables described, plus index. Original wrappers (front cover splitting, spine worn and partially defective, covers slightly soiled). NOT ex-library! Good. Item #3144
Who today could even conceive of procuring 192 incunables and offering them in a single bookseller's catalogue? So it went with Hiersemann, a towering figure among purveyors of early printed books. In the present catalogue we find two incunables that were purchased by William Schiede: 53.9 (item 12) = Mentelin's great Biblia Germanica 1466, a superb copy; and 571 / Inv. 125 (item 93) = Sorg's Biblia Germanica 1480.
