LEON, Fr. Luis De El Cantar De Cantares Según La Edición Reconocida y Cotejada Con Varios Manuscritos Auténticos y Publicada En Madrid Por La Imprenta De La Hija De Ibarra En MDCCCVI.

José María Viader, 1946.

A magnificent edition of The Song Of Songs, printed on cork. Number 177 of 267 copies printed on cork, from a total edition of 467. In the publisher's exquisite brown calf binding, with covers and spine delicately embossed in a gothic style and woven edges. Burgundy silk endpapers. Housed in the original silk lined cork box. Eight plates hand-colored and and illuminated in gilt by Juan Ribot. Richly illuminated borders and initials by Germán Viader to every page of text. A fine copy of this beautiful production with only very occasional, but inevitable, minor tears to the cork.

A most arresting piece of book production and printing, entirely printed on "papel corcho" with decoration and illumination embellishing every printed page.
The text is taken from Luis De Leon's sixteenth century Spanish translation of The Song Of Songs, which was first printed by Joaquín Ibarra's daughter in 1806. There is also a prefatory introduction on cork printing, with a history of Eudaldo Lanibell's 1906 edition of Don Quixote which was produced in just 52 copies. The printer of the present work, José María Viader, issued a facsimile in 1916, containing just a single leaf printed on cork, which was the forerunner for the present work.
