Title, description: INCUNABLES FROM THE SCHOYEN COLLECTION: HARDBOUND:
The Schoyen Collection began in 1955 with a manuscript fragment of circa 1300. The next Incunabula was acquired in 1976. In 1991 the Schoyen collection changed directions towards collecting only Western medieval manuscripts and they decided to put up 45 Incunables for auction at Sotheby's. Each of the 45 lots are very well described and illustrated in color in this Hard Cover catalog. All lots also show illustrations of binding tools and ownership marks.
