Description: the Latin Bible. Davidis Psalterium carmine redditum per Eobanum Hessum, cum annotationibus Viti Theodori Norimbergensis, quae commentarij vice esse possunt London, Excudebat Thomas Vautrollerius; title from 1575 with a woodcut printer's device, decorative initials, and head- and tail-pieces; minor wear at the top and outer edges. First London edition of this translation into Latin verse by German poet and Lutheran humanist Eobanus Hessus, in a worn sheepskin bound with a contemporary spine. At auction, it is uncommon. 376 pages, 3 by 4 3/4" in size French Huguenot immigrant Thomas Vautrollier, often known as Vautroullier, was a printer in England and temporarily in Scotland until his death in 1587. Around the start of Elizabeth I's reign (1558), Vautrollier left Paris or Rouen and immigrated to London. On March 9, 1562, he received letters of denization. On October 2, 1564, he was accepted as a brother of the Stationers' Company. Until 1570, when he opened a press in Blackfriars, he most likely served as a printer's servant.
