Luther New Testament, 1524. An extraordinarily rare and fabulously illustrated, painted and gilded early edition of Martin Luther's famous September Testament. The woodcuts series that accompany the Revelation provide a vivid and literal perspective on the meaning of the text. The lavish copy was doubtless commissioned by a member of the nobility close to Luther. Photo provided
