Donatus Ritzenhayn & Thomas Ribart [and] Christianus Rhodius. Jena. 1564, 1566, 1567, 1570 
First Jena edition. 4 Volumes. Thick folio. Vol. I: [xii], 540, (only each leaf numbered so in reality the pages are double this number), [viii] which comprise of a catalogue of Luther's letters etc., a half page errata and the publisher's colophon, dated 1565. (As the publisher's information is already given on the title-page, this was an extra, as from before the early 16th century, this was where the information was to be found. Over this transitional period the publishers would sometimes give the information both on the title-page and at the rear. Often, as in this case, there were discrepencies.) Vol. II: [vi], 571. Vol. III: [iv], 540, [2]pp errata. Vol. IV: [iv], 806 + 2 blank leaves. Woodcut borders to title-pages depicting the seals of the four evangelists and of Luther and Elector Johann Friedrich worshipping the crucified Christ; on verso of Vol. II title, and on leaf following titles in Vols. III & IV, are woodcuts depicting three Saxon princes and their coats of arms; woodcut initials, many of cherubs, engraved decorations. Uniformly bound in contemporary blind-stamped vellum over wooden boards, highly decorated with a central portrait of Luther to upper and lower bds of all volumes. Raised bands, later morocco spine labels with text in gilt. One whole original metal clasp remains to volume IV but all the upper boards retain the upper metal catch. The vellum is worn and soiled but the bindings are sound. The lower board to volume I has been sympathetically restored with a patch of later vellum, possibly 17th/18th century. Each volume has a small neat bookplate from the C.M. College Library at Bala and there is one stamp to the front free e/p but these are 19th century and do not detract. There is some worming to vol. I but it does not affect the reading of the text. There is occ. contemporary underlining and signatures to title-pages. This set is sound. Pictures are available on request. The first complete edition of Luther's works was published at Wittemburg under the auspices of the Elector of Saxony between 1539 and 1559. Those in Latin were in four volumes and those in German in eight. These were subsequently reprinted at both Wittemberg and Jena. 38587
