1567 Latin Vulgate Bible with Woodblock Illustration and Textual Variant. One leaf from a Latin Vulgate Bible published in Lyon in 1567 by Guglielmo Rovillium. Interesting textual variant: the passage at John 19:3 involves the omission of four words. In the mocking treatment that Jesus received from the Roman soldiers at John 19:3, an important element has been unintentionally omitted. First, looking at the text of the King James Version, we find that the soldiers twisted thorns into the shape of a crown of thorns and placed it on his head and then they put a purple robe on him. At that point they said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and hit him with their hands. Thus, the King James Version indicates that the verbal insult was the single statement: “Hail, King of the Jews!” However, the earliest text of this verse has four additional words, which mean “and they came to him,” and this text is strongly supported by the A.D. 200 Greek Papyrus #66, the second-century Greek Papyrus #90, the Greek Codex Sinaiticus, the Greek Codex Vaticanus, four other Greek uncials, family 13 of the Greek minuscules and a few other minuscules, several manuscripts of the Old Latin, the Jerome’s Latin Vulgate (as seen here, with the words “et veniebant ad eum,” meaning “and they came to him”), the Harclean Syriac, the Sahidic Coptic, and the Bohairic Coptic. Since this phrase and the one immediately preceding it both end with the word “him,” the omission was probably accidental and due to homoeoteleuton, or “same ending,” which is a kind of error in which material is skipped because adjacent lines or phrases have identical or nearly identical endings. However, since the tense of this omitted Greek verb is the “imperfect of continued action” (Marcus Dods, “The Gospel of St. John,” in The Expositor’s Greek Testament, 1:853) it could better be translated with an iterative meaning, such as “Then one after another they came up to him” or “They kept coming up to him.” According to Leon Morris, The Gospel according to John, p. 791, this episode probably indicates the soldiers coming to him “in some formal manner, as though doing homage to royalty.” This is one leaf from a Latin Vulgate Bible published in Lyon in 1567 by Guglielmo Rovillium, with the Roman numeral date of M. D. LXVII = 1567 (on the original 1567 title page but not included here). The beautiful woodcuts in this Bible were made by Pierre Eskrich (1530-1590) and Thomas Arande, both being inspired by Bernard Salomon. However, a catalogue from Leo Olschki, ""Livres a figures des XV et XVI siecle,"" 1913, attributes the woodcuts to Jean Moni, inspired by Bernard Salomon. Measures 4 3/4" x 7 1/2" and contains John, chapters 18:1-19:8. There are also 5 woodblock printed illustrations: Christ carrying his cross to Golgotha, Peter with his sword cutting off the ear of Malthus, Jesus before Annas, Jesus before Caiaphas, and Jesus before Pilate. ex-Herriman, Utah collection. #AM2171: $225
