¶ Imprint as Sack (Freiburg) 656. Ascribed to the Basel press of Johann Amerbach by A. Hartmann (Amerbach-korrespondenz (1942), I, p. 2, n. 2). The printing, however, seems to have been done by Rusch at Strassburg with types borrowed from Amerbach: F. Geldner in Archiv für Geschichte des Buchwesens, 23 (1982), cols 684-8. GW dates shortly after 23 Sept. 1481 but manuscript notes in the Sion College copy and in Oates 124 are dated 1480. This is the earliest Latin Bible printed with glosses, produced by Adolf Rusch for Anton Koberger ca. 1481.
