Historia de la Passio de Nostre Senyor Deu Iesucrist

A marvelous collected volume concerning the Passion of Christ and the life of the Virgin Mary was published on January 11th, 1493 in the Valencian printing house of Pedro Hagenbach and Leonardo Hutz, who were likely of German origin. The incunabulum, a rare early printed book originating from before 1501, is a compilation of three works combined and printed at the behest of Jaime Vila. The fascinating specimen of the so-called Valencian school of poetry presents the transition between the medieval and Renaissance styles and includes works by Joan Escriva, Bernat Fenollar (1438–1516), Jaume Gassul, Pere Martines (d. 1463), Joan Moreno, and Joan Rois de Corella (1435–97). A total of 130 masterful woodcuts adorn the various Valencian texts, which are clearly printed in an elegant Gothic script. This is a truly splendid specimen of poetry marking a historic and tumultuous epoch!
