Curae Philologicae ert Criticae in SS. Apostolorum Jacobi Petri Judae et Joannis Epistolas Hujuque Apocal, by Jo. Christopher Wolf.
Published 1741, Hamburg by Christian Herold.
815 pages. Text in Latin and Greek.
Rare mid-18th century German book.
In the rare original [temporary] pasteboard binding, smooth spine, old paper call number label at base of spine, deckled untrimmed original edges (as issued- would have been trimmed smooth by the binder once bound in leather or vellum as most books of this era were).
Binding worn and stained as expected, text block cracked and slightly shaken, a few pages or signatures loose, still overall structurally sound.
Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
